A Day in the Life

I received this particularly entertaining email from Beth while I was out of town last week. In case you’re considering children of your own, consider yourself forewarned. Posted with permission.

Subject: we need a bath

it is 10am and we all already need a bath. why? you
may ask. oh, let me tell you. she has already managed
to have all of the following on her, in her, in her
hair, and on her face. POOP. you already know this
story. PEE. again, no need to repeat. ANIMAL CRACKERS.
went to the park and thought these would be a good to
keep her occupied. oh, 1/2 way through, stopped, and
checked out why she was so quiet. oh yeah, we like to
PLAY in the animal crackers, not eat them. they are
all over her, in her hair, in her hands, all over the
sides and front of the stroller. oh well, what can you
do now. proceed with my walk. get done, go the car,
and proceed to park her so i can use a wet wipe to
“clean” her up. oops, my mistake. i have parked her
too close to the car’s tire. yep, you guessed it. now
we have black TIRE smudge all over our hands to match
the animal crackers. proceed to clean THAT up. get
home and decide to give her a snack. hey, let’s try
the jarred MAC AND CHEESE! good idea! actually, not
one. do you know how far that mac and cheese can fly
when she grabs the spoon FROM your hands and proceeds
to flap her arms widely over her head. yes, now we can
add the walls and blinds to clean up as well and the
mac and cheese from her, and the TURKEY MEAT that she
has proceeded to wipe all over the chair, and the
WATER off the floor that she insists on dropping
(those damn sippy cups DO leak). have to run, she just
dropped a HUGE load in her diaper. that makes 4 shooey
diapers today. okay, candid camera, come on out. and
seriously, you want to know when i ovulate again?!

    Seriously, Mike – though I can definitely relate, my blog would be immeasurably funnier if my wife wrote me email like this.

    I have followed the saga of your daughter’s poopy pants with much… um… delight.
