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

             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…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
