I Said What What in the Butt

This morning, Griffin took it upon himself to poop in his goodnite and not tell me.

Instead, he went straight to the bathroom and spent over 20 minutes in there. As I walked past, I smelled an awful smell and checked on him, only to find poop streaks down his legs, up his back, all over the walls and smeared into the floor.

He turns five in five days. I can't decide if I'm sorely disappointed that he pooped his pants or ecstatically happy that he tried to clean it up himself.

I'd go with happy. I have a friend who's five year old son had to sit on top of the closed toilet lid to wipe. She finally had to get rid of the toilet seat covers because they all had little brown stains on them.

Also one time he couldn't find any toilet paper and used her shirt to wipe his bum with. And YES, it was one of her nicest shirts.

So I guess the moral of the story is "shit happens".

What michelle said. And I hope it was that he was trying to clean it up himself and not that it was his new artistic medium of choice. Ewww.

I've been waiting to discover a scene like this. When I was a babe, I had a little poopy picnic in my crib and stuffed my little picnic box with the contents of my diaper. Nice.

Hope the birthday weekend goes well!

Neither! Whoop his ass and send him to his room with a bucket for a week. KIDDING!! :-D Really I am!!
I bet he was embarrassed and was trying to clean it up. At least... it wasn't smeared in his bed?

oh, been there, done that!
i was happy that he had tried to clean himself up - but it still sucks to clean!

Angelina said...

It makes me tired just thinking about you having to clean it up.

Go with happy.

My sister-in-law's twin smeared poop from one of their diapers all over the front picture window at their house. Very pretty.

Erin said...

Oh my goodness, I can just imagine the scene...lol. One we have experienced here. Poor guy at least he tried to clean it up. He was probably so embarrassed. Ours was on the couch smeared in and then a little trail smooshed into the carpet all the way to the bathroom...gross!

I am so glad those days are in the past..

babybug said...

ohh, poor guy! he was a good boy trying to clean up :)

Kim said...

Well it might be my tendancy towards the O and the C in OCD, but I'd go w/ happy. Rest assured, he won't go to college pooping his pants (tho' I make no claims that he won't poop them while there)... and the fact that he wished to clean himself up deserves a big A-Men.

Tom said...

sorry, girlfriend, but i just laughed really hard......... so glad i never have to clean up poop.... but you should be happy that your boy is smart enough to TRY and clean it up.... hell, we've all shit our pants at one point or another. but you should tell him that poop is BAD BAD BAD and that he should be ashamed of it and that it has germs and if it doesn't go directly into a toilet the germs will take over the house....... and thus why i'm not a parent and never will be. love ya, lover!

aaaah, the adventure, hey? sounds like you have such a good attitude... lucky boy!

patrice said...

Oh good. It's not just my kid. Whew. I was too shocked and sickened to post about it.

MéLisa said...

Oh you paint such a pretty picture that it makes me want to have a 1/2 a dozen! Eeeegad!

Well I guess you have to give the little guy some credit for trying to clean up right? But I love Kim's comment about waiting for the inlaws. Now that would have been special!
