3/30/09 - Makenna made a nasty

Makenna is just over a year old and this is the first time we have run into this problem. For that, I am not complaining. I'll save you from the details, but basically, she has problems with getting plugged up for short periods of of time. Becasue of this, she will push and push and push...but typically have no results.

So the other night, I'm giving her a bath (which is our nightly routine, which I love). We get to spend several minutes with each other...she gets to play, and I get to watch her learn what different toys do and I love her fascination with falling water.

All night she had been grunting and pushing, but the only thing she had to show for it was a little bit of poop in her diaper. When she was in the bath, she started grunting again and I assumed we would still have no results. The last thing I wash is her booty crack, and when I pulled the washcloth away, low and behold we had a little pebble sized turd. I called for Cristi who took the wash cloth away and Makenna kept on playing with her toys.

I assumed she was doing pushing, but a few minutes later, she started struggling again. This time we got more than a pebble. The floater she dropped this time was at least the size of her arm. I'm sure it was much smaller than that, but when you have a soaking wet child, swimming with her own feces, toys all in the water, bouncing around with the poop, I'm telling you, the excrement starts looking larger than life. Luckily, my wife came to my rescue and scooped out the poop with the same washcloth and flushed it down the toilet.

After getting Makenna out and dried off, Cristi then filled the tub with water and a little bit of bleach as well as hand washed each of her toys. I guess the funny part about this (other than the fact that my daughter pooped in her own bath water) is that she had no idea what was going on. She assumed everything was just fine. Of course when I had to yell for Cristi she got scared just because it was loud. If I hadn't of yelled, she would have been just fine to keep playing.

No one forced you to read it. I thought I spelled it out pretty clear in the title what this post was about.

I pooped in the bath and used it to sink my battle ship

That doesn't even make sense
