Duck & Cover!

This morning while I was mid-diaper change with Emily, she pooped.  But it wasn't just a regular poo.... it shot out of her cute little bum all over my arm {covering my arm from mid forearm to mid bicep!} and onto the floor 5 feet away!  I know this because instead of helping clean me off Shep ran to get a tape measure to assess her projection distance.  ;)

Well that's one way to wake up in the morning!  But honestly, who could get mad at a cute little face like this?!

It amazes me that things I never thought I'd be able to tolerate or even discuss before seem like ordinary life now!  I've never used the word "poop" as much in my 30+ years of living as I have over the past 6 weeks.  I'm normally a little very squeamish when it comes to anything remotely "yucky".... and it's shocking to me that having most of my arm covered in human waste was no big deal!  It's a good thing that my skin is a little bit thicker now {no pun intended} ... dealing with poop, puke and who-knows-what-else is part of my job description and daily life now!  Honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way.  I'd do anything for my little kissy face.


  1. So Emily is 21" tall and her poop landed 5 feet away. That would be the equivalent of a 6 foot tall adult being able to poop 17 feet away.

  2. Ha ha! This exact same thing happened to me once when my son was a baby. It was crazy how far that poop shot out, covering me and the kitchen cabinets behind me, also a good four-five feet away!! But you're right, who could get mad at a sweet little face like that? She is surely a little beauty! May the adventures in babyhood continue!!! XO
