surprise, surprise!

Mommy Lesson #245:
If at any point in the day you hear your toddler say, "Oh. Mommy. Come here!", drop everything and do so immediately.
But first, brace yourself...'Cause there's no telling what you might see.

Case in point:
Today, while drying my hair, I heard Avery utter the "Phrase O' Doom."
I quickly turned off the hair dryer and rushed into the next room to see what she needed.
What greeted me in the next room?
A lovely pile of Avery excrement.
IN THE CLOSET.

Ugh.
Gross.

The details are a little fuzzy, but I *think* I asked, "What did you do? Did you poo poo in the closet?!?"
To which Avery responded, "Yes, Mommy. You need to clean it."
After trying to hide my smile at the brazenness that is my two-year-old Avery, I said, "Oh. Well, I think that you need to help me."

Needless to say, Avery and I had a serious discussion about the proper placement of human waste this afternoon.

Wowza.
22 year-old Jennifer would be shocked and appalled to know that 32 year-old Jennifer not only openly talks about poop, but unashamedly writes about it on her blog.

What's become of me?

Hmmm...What's become of you? You've gone through that amazing transformation from woman to MOTHER. :) Poo will always bother you - but as a mother, God gives a VERY special kind of grace. :)

So, so funny Jennifer. It sounds like you really kept your cool. I don't know if I would've been such a good mama... :)

Ya know what they say... it's a "poopy" job, but somebody's gotta do it!

Didn't you have an incident while drying your hair a couple weeks ago? :)

I laughed out loud at her saying that YOU needed to clean it.
