Well Poop!

If you've ever had kids you probably have some good poop stories in your Parental Story library. I always laugh at seeing sqeamish parents who gingerly change those first poopy diapers of their new borns. With in weeks they are old pros and probably have a story...or three about poop. Funny kid stories and poop seem to go hand in hand. Tonight as I was putting the kids in the bath tub I proclaimed our two bathtub rules once again # 1. The water stays IN the bath tub and #2. No pooping in the water. Funny that that is rule #2. Get it? Ok well that rule was made for a definite reason as that has happened more times than I care to share. ANYWAY I went in there to check on my crew and they were playing nicely but I smelled poop. I didn't really think anything of it because #1 i've pretty much been smelling poop for the last 4 years (even when there is no poop around) and #2 I didn't see any in the usual place (the water). The 2nd time I went to check on them it was undeniable. I said "man it smells like poop in here!" and that's when Carson piped up "Look Mommy, there's poop!" And there it was. Sitting there in a nice neat pile on the shelf by the tub. Once again I asked the question, "Who's poop is that?" Carson immediately fessed up. I have to give him credit even though I don't even want to think about how he accomplished it, but he was definitely trying to follow rule #2.

These pictures have nothing to do with poop (thank goodness right?) but i am firm believer that any blog post is better with pictures:)
The scene I walked in on the other day. School was in session as teach was in the chair and Carson was dutifully sitting on his designated pillow. Ha! It does do my reader heart good to see them reading books.

I guess Kate believes in the teach yourself while I read this book by myself method.

New Dora slippers from Aunt Stacey, Uncle Burke and Marin.

So cute. I knew they would want to wear them everywhere. And they did. Everywhere.

Oh girl do I have some stories to share with you!!! The latest involves Brice and I found myself tearing up thinking 'Oh my goodness, soon we will find out if we are having another little boy or if we are going to have a little girl to add to this insanity!' Hope everything is going well, it's been too long but I try to keep up through your blog.
Blessings,
Shavonne

I love the reading pictures!! And what is it about pooping in the tub! Marin has done it to me twice (just me...never Burke). Maybe she will learn from her cousin and do it beside the tub instead. ha! Hilarious, Carson.

This has me laughing hard - trying to visualize his little hiney aimed up on the shelf.

God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
