There are some baby days I wish wouldn't happen ...

I am pooped - literally! Helen, who has been ahving a little trouble going, pooped in the bathtub. What a nightmare. What a gross, horrible thing to have to clean. I just wanted to rip the whole thing out of the wall.
I used enough Clorox to disinfect the dirtiest locker room, but still, it will be a while before I feel comfortable that it's really clean.
Luckily, the kids have their own bathroom, so I won't be showering there tonight.

Sometimes being a mommy is no fun.

Ame - My grandaughter did that one night when I was bathing her while babysitting. I think the warm water "moves" them. :) I tell you what, tho, I'd rather clean baby poop than adult poop anyday. I have such admiration for nurses and CNA's. I could never deal with that for anyone who isn't family.

BTDT as well.... and no, it isn't fun at all.

Luke has done that twice before! You are right, it is a pretty gross thing to happen, I felt like I was never going to get that tub clean again!!

I can remember being a kid (probably 4) and bathing with a neighbor (who was probably 2) and she pooped in the tub, I was so grossed out. Obviously if I can recall it 30 years later.

On a side note, isn't it funny how times have changed, I would never let my children share a bath with a friend, I hardly bathed them together, but I know we did it frequently as did other friends, part of the whole neighborhood as a family thing.

Kaye - When I was little, in the early Fifties, a lot of parents were really poor, my own included. However, we had a house that my Dad built, and therefore, we had a full bathroom. Our closest neighbours, and my best friends, growing up, did not have a bathroom. They lived in a summer cottage. They had a toilet in the back hall. They washed up in the kitchen sink. They had an outdoor, cold water shower enclosed by canvas, that their Dad used. Their Mom and the kids used to come to our house to take a bath. We had a big old clawfoot tub that was nice and deep. (I wish I had it now. I have a modern bathroom with a shallow tub). My sister and I used to take baths with our neighbour kids.

One of the "kids" is now 60. When I saw him at his Dad's funeral he had to tell people that we have bathed together. LOL! He neglected to say that it was 55 years ago. LOL!

I used to bathe my DK's together when they were little. I have pictures of them in the tub together, and they are precious now.
