poo prints

Yesterday was a right of passage for me.

In the morning we were busy getting both of us ready to head out to music class. Marlie loves to run around without any clothes on and without her diaper. She just loves it. She runs and giggles and dances around. So, sometimes I let her for a bit before getting her dressed. Yesterday I told her she could run around until I was done blow drying my hair.

While I was in the bathroom I heard "Uh Oh! Uh Oh! Uh Oh!" coming from the loft. Three uh ohs in a row. I knew we were in big trouble. She came in to the bathroom with her eyes like saucers and pointed me in to the other room.

Oh friends. There on the light carpet was two big pieces of poo and tiny poo foot prints all over the room.

Fun stuff. Motherhood keeps you on your toes thats for sure. Needless to say we were late for music class. But thats Ok. We got there. Marlie loved it. And I got to see one of my faithful blog readers and meet her little boy. Hi Lisa!

So when I said I might take a nap in yesterday's post, what I really meant was scrub poop out of the carpet. But whatever.

LOVE this story! And poop-scrubbing is nearly as relaxing as a nap, isn't it?
