Poop Stories, a Sweet Contest, and More

June 30, 2010

I’ve been a neglectful blogi this week, so I am making up for it with a true story.

Which you will now read.

Once, when H was still in diapers, I was changing him after a Number Two.  I was wiping and wiping and wiping and there was a stubborn little bit that just wouldn’t come off.  I took a clean wipe and used  it to sort of pluck the piece of poo poo from his hiney.  When I pulled it, it got longer.  And longer.  And longer.  And then (gasp), “H, how did you eat twine!”  Because I was pulling what I thought was a piece of twine out of his pooper.  Until I realized it was an asparagus spear.  Intact.  He has always been a vegetable lover!

And now, for The Contest!

Submit your BEST kid-related story (does not have to include poop) for a chance to win your very own CD burned-by-The-Sweetest-family copy of My Name Is Roosevelt Franklin. This is an out of print album that is sure to entertain adults and kids alike.

    I do not want to enter any contest, but when my older daughter was about 3 months old? She started peeing out weird crystal things. I was all freaked out, because there was just no way this was a good thing. I looked through all the baby books I had to see what I could possibly be doing wrong to cause these weird uric acid crystals. Nothing.

    And then I googled, “weird rubbery crystals in diaper” and discovered that the crystals were not coming out of my daughter at all, but instead out of the diaper.

    I so did not know before that moment that the diaper was filled with liquid-absorbing crystals.

    There was no pee emergency. Thank goodness.



    Relief that she didn’t have Baby Gout, but kind of freaky that the diaper was breaking down like that!
