Poop and Love

When our new Sunday School year started at the end of August, I decided not keep the nursery and go back to my Adult class with Jay. I did agree to be put on the Parent's rotation. Yes, I'm fully aware that I'm not a parent - it was a moment of weakness.

Today was my duty day and I was put in with the 2 year olds. There were 12 of them with 3 adults. Not a bad ratio - or so I thought. The problem with this age group is that they are half diapers, half panties and the ones that are in panties really aren't fully potty-trained.

We had one little girl who tee-teed in her panties. All I could think is that her parents must have given her a liter of water before she came in because it was a river all over the floor. I got her cleaned up but bless her heart, there wasn't a change of clothes in her bag so she just had to walk around in her shirt.

A little later, I actually had a little girl come tell me she had to go potty.  How awesome is that? What she didn't tell me is that she had already POOPED.ALL.UP.IN.HER.PANTIES! I cannot even tell you how gross it was. I may or may not have vomited a little in my mouth. By the time I got those panties off, there was poop all down her legs, poop on the toilet, poop on the floor and yes, poop ON MY HANDS!

It took me about 20 minutes to get her, me and the bathroom cleaned up and I'm just gonna be honest, I threw her panties away. They was just no way I was going to try and rinse them out. It was just more than i could stomach. I was sweating like a crazy woman and when the last one left, I was out of there like lightning.

And with that, I would like to wish my Hubs a Happy Anniversary. The past 12 years have been more than I could have ever hoped and most definitely more than I deserve.

Oh dear! I cannot even imagine sending a half potty trained kid into the nursery with panties on! WHAT are some parents thinking?!?!?

Glad you survived, though. Brings back memories of Mothers Day Out. It's one thing when it's your kid, but it's a whole 'nother thang when it's someone elses. ;)

Happy Anniversary!!!!!

I had a kid in my class one year that pooped in his pants like every day. I always threw his underwear away too and one day his mom asked me where his underwear was going. I was like, seriously? You want those back?

P.S. It's totally appropriate to throw in an anniversary mention at the end of a poop segment. Totally. Of course I may not be the best one to say what is appropriate...

AH! Oh girl! You had some kind of morning! I once was baby sitting 3 kids one was a 7 month old baby. We were all sitting calmly watching tv (a true moment of peace, which should have been my first clue) and the baby fell asleep in my arms. I was thinking "this is nice he's so sweet!" Then as he slept he had a major diaper blow-out all over my white shirt. I literally didn't know what to do. Poop has a way of stumping people...Happy Anniversary :)

BAHAHAHAHA. I have kids and REFUSED to volunteer for the nursery. If a church required that the parents volunteer, then I wouldn't go to that church. I know, it's wrong and selfish, but GOd Bless YOU because I would have thrown up in that situation. Then there would be a kid AND an adult with both poop and throw up on them, and how would that have been any better?

Welcome to my world...

Oh my! It's bad enough when its your own kid, but some other kids poo is the nastiest thing ever! I'm glad you made it out alive ;)
Happy anniversary, you love birds!

At my church the parents have to take their kids potty. That way THEY get THEIR OWN KIDS NASTY POOP ON THEIR OWN HANDS! Amen to that!

Hysterical! I could only handle my own kids bodily functions, not any other kid! You are BRAVE!

Happy 12 years!

I giggled out loud.

And why don't you have kids again?

I've always said that working in the nursery is THE most effective form of birth control. Before I got pregnant with Noah, my Mom started volunteering to work my shift for me. Hint much??
