Bathtime: A Horror Story

So the other day Hadlee and Miss Baby were taking a bath.  I was checking on them literally every 30 seconds while I did other stuff.  My husband was quite confused why I went in there 10 times in 5 minutes.  Hadlee is quite vocal in the bathtub, constantly singing or playing with her toys, so I wasn't to concerned that anything would happen without me hearing about it, and I was only 10 feet away at most.  But while I wasn't in there, Hadlee started yelling for me.  I bolted over, terrified that something had happened.  Something had happened indeed.

Floating in the bathwater were turds.  Yup.  Poop.  In the tub. 

I immediately tried to remove Hadlee from the tub.  I was quite sure that it was Miss Baby that had used the bathtub as a toilet, and thought it was disgusting that Hadlee was sitting in someone else's feces water.

Our conversation went something like this:

Rachel:  Hadlee, get out now!  Here is your towel.
Hadlee:  I didn't do it!  It was the BABY!
Rachel:  I know, GET OUT!
Hadlee:  But it wasn't me!  It was the BABY!
Rachel:  Yeah, I know, the baby pooped, now GET OUT!
Hadlee:  But the baby did it, I didn't poop!
Rachel:  Hadlee, I know you didn't poop, the baby did, and you are sitting in it and that is disgusting, now GET OUT!!!!
Hadlee:  Fine.

Apparently me taking her out of the tub first was like accusing her of pooping in the tub.  Like she was in trouble.  If it were me I would have jumped out of the tub as fast as I could, I guess she thought I should just take the turds out and bathtime should continue uninterrupted. 

She finally got out, then I took Miss Baby out of the tub.  I tried to get her to stay in the bathroom, but since I also had to empty the bathtub I didn't exactly succeed.  I fished the floaters (good news, Miss Baby must be getting enough fiber, at least that is what I learned in the Prairie Primer) out of the tub with toilet paper.  I missed one by a little bit and got some on MY THUMB!  GROSS!

So I finally get all of it out, and have to wait for the tub to drain, which apparently takes a little while.  As soon as it gets empty I start refilling it so I can wash the girls from head to toe to make sure they are at least mildly sanitary after the last debacle.  I put Hadlee in the tub and then go to get Miss Baby.  Who was standing right outside the doorway of the bathroom.  Peeing on the carpet.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs

- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
