Many times i have read a blog post or email with a retelling of this story involving the writers own kids. I have seen it in magazines and heard friends talk about it but i have always just sat there smugly saying “never happened to me”.
It happened Monday after nap, Eilidh woke up and as happens more often than not upon entering the room i could smell poo (who can tell where this story is going) . Finding Eilidh minus her clothes is also not that unexpected but finding her with nothing but a t-shirt on is.
I life the poo and pee covered baby out the cot and observe the damage, the poo filled nappy sits in the corner with at least half its contents smeared over the sheets, bedding and up the sides of the cot. Everything was soaked with pee leading me to believe she had rid herself of the nappy pre nap.
Clean up was not fun and of course Rebecca keeps having to remind us that Eilidh poo-d in the cot, so why do i feel that i have just went through a parenting milestone – something that every parent must go through at least once.
On a less disgusting note we bought a new car yesterday , Its a Vauxhall Zafira (see a picture of it Here although this is not the one we bought, ours is blue). As you can see its a much bigger car (7 seater) to fit our expanding family, with three children all still needing car seats we needed to upgrade from the one we had. Should hopefully be picking it up on Friday
