O. M. G. Also, I Quit

Fonzie threw up his entire breakfast today while we were eating lunch. He's a big dog, you know, so his meals are big too, which means that the enormous pile of regurgitated meal was... big.

Jim put Eli down for his nap after lunch. Ten minutes later, he went in to find that Eli had torn off his diaper- his FULL dirty diaper- and stepped in the contents, before running all over the room and his bedding. Man do I wish we had held off on that "moving him out of his crib" business another week or so.

While I was scrubbing the rug, wiping down the entire wood floor, sanitizing the tub wherein Eli had undergone Feces Removal and soaking the bedding, I heard a yell of alarm from the den, followed by the rapid pattering of Addy's feet as she announced, "Eli broke the computer!"

While he hadn't broken it, he did manage to climb onto the desk chair and rip several plastic letter covers off the keyboard of Jim's laptop.

Also, the other day Eli pooped in the bathtub. For like the fifth time.

These are the kind of days that I feel 100% glad, not even a tiny bit sorry, perhaps even downright CELEBRATORY, that I am not pregnant.

HAZARD PAY. Where is it?

Oh dear. Gabe has pulled his diaper off the last two nights and rubbed poop everywhere. Tonight he will sleep in a pull-up and a too-tight onesie. It must be the age.

Sorry about your day. :(

Ugh. Poopy and barfy messes are the absolute worst. I feel for you.

I am soo sorry. It's stories like that, that make me grateful for the part-time parenting of being a stepmom.

Ducktape might be your next step! I wouldn't even think of more babies until Eli was not only using the toilet but doing his own laundry too!!!!

Do you have are VERY LARGE pillow to scream in?? :O

Why is there so much POOP in your life right now? This seems cruel.

Seriously, that's a LOT of bodily functions.

You deserve a day at the spa.

OK, or at least a bath in a sanitized tub
