"Chocolate poo-poo"

Tonight's bath time kind of reminded me of Caddyshack, yeah, you know the part, only it wasn't a Baby Ruth.


I put the kids in the big tub in our room so that I could get some organizing done in my bedroom and still see and hear the kids. They were having a great time, and playing so well, which is unusual as Laine usually tries to drown Gabe within the first few minutes. If not that, she at least hoards all the toys and takes away any toys that Gabe managed to grab so that he cries. Needless to say, they usually just bathe separately these days.

Anyway, a while later I hear Laine freaking out, which is hysterical. I am sorry, it makes me laugh so hard when my child is in such distress. The way she goes apey over the silliest things, anyone who knows her well knows what I am talking about. Anyway, she is screaming, "the toys, the toys! oh no, the toys! I ask what is happening as I am running in and, she said "Gabe went poopoo in the tub!" And, though she hasn't seen Caddyshack herself, continues, "Oh no, Gabe's chocolate poo poo is getting the toys!" It was so funny, it made cleaning it up not as bad.




Above are pics of the bath, post drainage and proper sanitation of the tub and toys.

Classic! At least they both were afraid of the "chocolate". My nephew tries to eat the "chocolate" and he is almost three. :) Nat...boy, does Laine have your smile or what?? So CUTE!

Did it remind you of Laine's tub experience with me in Korea? hee hee What is it with kids, bathtubs, and poo! You're kids are lucky to have such a fun mom. The kiddies are adorable. I can't believe how grown up Gabe looks since I last saw him.
Very story!

Natalie, your stories still make me laugh. I guess your vomiting in front of people instead of peeing your pants. I say you have advanced!! just kidding that really sounded awful. Don't you love clean up duty after children--always an adventure. I love reading about what you have been up to, Your kids are so stinkin cute!!

Nat- At least your kids aren't taking a bath with their clothes on, which is more than I can say for you (back in our college J1 apartment)!

btw- I cleaned up Jack's "poo poo" out of the tub on two different occasions...I made Ryan do it on the third time.
