If it isn't the boys bringing it up, it's Rebekah's poopy diapers and poop explosions that seem to occupy my time. We just need to face it, POOP is a part of our everyday lives! If you don't believe me, then you obviously haven't read the book Everyone Poops by Taro Gomi.
Well, Tuesday was no different. Somehow, I expected it to be a grand day. Rebekah was getting her spica cast off! So on the way to the orthopedist's office, what happens? One last poop explosion up and out the back of the cast. That made for a lovely mess while they tried to cut the cast off.
To make things even better, I had orders to soak her in the tub until she was a prune to help her leg soreness. She wouldn't stay still in her bath chair and kept sliding down, so that wasn't working. I couldn't put her in a bath seat for babies because she had been casted at a 45 degree angle for 6 weeks and wanted nothing to do with sitting up fully. So I finally relented, put on a bathing suit, and sat in the tub with her. She was getting really irritable and started coughing. Well, with the coughing inevitably came... poop in the tub! I managed to hand her off to the nurse and started to drain/clean the tub so I could take a shower and clean myself off.
But there it was, at the bottom of the tub, as if mocking me... or perhaps just reminding me that I cannot escape my life doomed to poop at every turn. But living a sitcom kind-of-life, I didn't let a little poop bring me down. It can at least be washed off! So I did the only thing that I could do in a situation like this. I laughed and grabbed my phone and took a picture. As the water continued to drain, another blob of poop formed a sad face, as if saddened, because it did not get the best of me!

Birdie, birdie in the sky,
Why'd you turdie in my eye?
I don't worry, I don't cry,
I'm just glad that cows don't fly!
