Diaper Disaster !!


*You knew that someday, sometime there would be a post on this blog about poop. Today is that day. There are no photos to spare you the nasty details.

Tenley was supposed to be taking a nap. Mistake #1 - It was hot so when I put her down I took off the dress she was wearing and left her in her diaper. Big Mistake #2 - Also when I put her down, I thought I smelled something not right but figured she was a little gassy, she would go to sleep soon and I would change her when she got up. Huge Mistake #3 - She never did go to sleep. She screamed a lot and played with her toys and babbled. After a few minutes she was back to screaming. I thought she would get tired and go to sleep. After an hour of this I decided to go and get her. It should be said that during all of this Michelle was taking a nap as well so I was trying not to let Tenley wake her up.

I walked into the room and noticed something was not right not to mention a little smelly. I turned on the light to see a little better and there was my little beauty standing in her crib with nothing on and a big smile on her face. Her diaper that she had filled with toxic waste and removed was on the other side of the crib. That was when I noticed that the toxic contents of her diaper were all over her, the crib sheet and the crib. Apparently while I thought she was being just a little cranky I should have gone in to check on her and could have possibly avoided the hazardous materials clean up that would come later. I looked around for rubber gloves but never found any. So I grabbed my Lysol wipes, baby wipes, a new diaper and dove right in. It was down right nasty. Tenley just smiled bigger and bigger at me during this whole time like she knew what she was doing and was enjoying the moment.

I know that these moments come during parenthood I just hope they don't come along too often.

WELL, LET ME TELL YOU A LITTLE STORY ABOUT ANOTHER BABY WHO TOOK UP THE ART OF POOP PAINTING AT A VERY EARLY AGE. IT WAS ME! MY MOM CAME IN AND IT WAS ON ME THE CRIB THE SHEETS, BUT I HAD ALSO PAINTED THE WALLS WITH IT (A TRUE ARTEST ALWAYS TRYS DIFFERENT THINGS). SHE TOOK ME RIGHT TO THE TUB SCRUBED, SHAPOOED, POWERED AND FOR A NICE TOUCH STRONG AFTER SHAVE. IT DIDN'T DO A BIT OF GOOD! WHEN MY UNCLE CAME IN AND PICKED ME UP AND GAVE ME A GREAT BIG KISS, HE TURNED UP HIS NOSE AND SAID,"THIS KID STINKS!!!!!". YES, THIS WONDERFUL STINKY KID WAS ME. AND IT TOOK A FEW DAYS TO AIR OUT. MY ROOM ON THE OTHER HAND FAIRED BETTER THAN I DID. AFTER MOM CLEANED IT UP IT WAS FINE. SO JEFF THIS HAPPENS TO THE BEST OF US. THANK GOODNESS MIKE AND LISA DIDN'T TAKE AFTER THEIR MOTHER IN THAT WAY :0)
YOU TWO ARE DOING GREAT! DON'T LET THE POOPS GET YOU DOWN, WHEN SHE'S IN HER TEENS WE'LL TALK!!!!
