So you know we are potty training and we are being pretty laid back about it. The events of the past week have made me want to padlock a diaper on Blondie Boy's cute little tush.  If you don't like reading about poop, you may want to stop here so dont' say I didn't warn you.

The first incident resulted when while Blondie Boy was running around I thought I saw a brown mark on his bum, inspected said mark looked around the floor but merely found the Emma dog licking her lips.  Now the evidence was purely circumstantial and I'm sure no judge or jury would have convicted her, but needless to say I couldn't look at her the same.

Move forward a few days and Blondie Boy again is frolicking about naked as he likes to do, seriously this kid is a stripper, and I see it drop from his bum to the floor. He then sprints across the room dropping presents on the floor along the way. This time as I scream "Noooo" I watch in disgust as Miss Emma eats up the chocolate treats greedily.

His "shit and sprint" is repeated the next day but luckily this time we are able to keep Emma away.  I still can't quite look her in the eye though knowing what she's done.  We have a few poopscapade free days and then while I'm sitting in a board meeting I get this text from NBH:

"For Blondie Boy's next trick, how about pulling your nappy to the side under your PJs, shitting down the leg of your still-fastened PJs into the foot and then smushing it about with your got so both your PJ foot and foot are ingrained with shit. Had to bath him."

It took every ounce of willpower not to burst out laughing when I saw it flash on my iPhone. Also I was secretly excited because I could finally use this emoticon which I've been dying to use since I download Emoji.

So what is the point of this blog post, other than to obviously have my son hate me some point down the road? I don't know but maybe someone else has similar stories? Or you know of some scatological sporting events I could enter him in? Bueller? Bueller?

Ahhh! I don't think I could handle possible human poop consumption!

Hopefully your boys won't try to make a relay race out of it :)

You have to promise not to judge me if I share this with you!

When BB was at the start of his potty training (he was about one at the time and the training included telling us he needed the toilet) there was an incident that I have tried to block from my memory but I think I need to share it with you so that you know that there is life after poop.

So BB was able to take his own nappies off, especially when he had made it rather full of pee and it sort of hung down from his bottom. Anyway one day he had done this and I was out of the room. I came back to the room to find him with poo on his face and around his mouth... I wasn't sure at the time and even now I am not sure if he ate any but just in case we really washed his mouth out!

Oh and my sisters dog used to eat poopy nappies all the time. My sister would put it down finish cleaning up the baby and before she could blink the dog had her mouth in the old nappy!

I have sat and read this post, laughing to myself in a very knowing way! I love the word Poopscapades!! Hehe!

Dog having a 'snack' ,'painted' walls and finding an escapee with my bare foot.... I've seen 'em all!

Ohh potty training is so much fun! Don't you think!?
