Milestone for Everett

Well, this one is kind of gross, but it is a milestone... Everett, for the very first time, pooped in the bath!!! Yes, yes, I know, this is disgusting, but I had to share that Madeleine tonight asked since Everett pooped in the bath, if she could poop in the bath. Then, she said, but I'm bigger so I shouldn't poop in the bath.. yes, I responded, no pooping in the bath!

Before I had children I never thought about the possibility of pooping in the bath. However, I remember it happening more than once when Madeleine was a baby. And now, Everett's first time... Ahh!

When I first experienced Madeleine pooping in the bath, I remember immediately getting her out of the bathtub and draining out the water. I learned that is not the best way to deal with the situation. Instead, I now utilize a child's toy to scoop out the offending poo and deliver it to its rightful place in the toilet. Then, scoop out baby and drain the water.

I should write a book or something... Next post not so gross, promise!

Good tip! The other day Sam started making her poop face in the bath, so I grabbed her and tried to transfer her to the toilet. I ended up with a trail of poop on the bathroom floor. Next time I will leave her in the bath....

Wait what. Babies poop in the bathtub? There is just so much I don't know. The more I read Kerry the less I believe I am equipped to handle children.
