What a Stinky Day!

My stinky day in Numbers:

2 - Number of little boys who are toilet trained in our house hold
1 - Number of little girls still in diapers in our household
2 - Number of times said little girl leaked out of her diaper - including one huge explosion poo up her back - GROSS!
4 - Number of times Mommy asked 4 year old to go potty before bus arrives
1 - Number of times 4 year old pooped in his pants as the bus came into view down the street
6 - Number of minutes bus had to wait as 4 year old got cleaned up and changed
6 - Number of times Mommy reminded 3 year old to use potty throughout the day
5 - Number of times Mommy picked up a rice milk carton off the floor after 3 year old poured his own drink unassisted - Explains the exponential amount of pee
7 - Number of times 3 year old disappeared and changed clothes since he peed in them
2 - Number of times said 3 year old did NOT poop in the toilet
4 - Number of laundry loads Mommy did on the sanitize mode

What would you do????

A day like this STINKS...and it took all my energy and focus not to loose my cool. I tried my very best not to criticize the boys or get angry after each of the accidents. I only yelled once - and that was while a naked bum DJ ran to look out the window at the bus waiting for him...but man, how many toilet accidents can happen in one day.

My Tuesday was was yours?

----Sorry if I do not read all your wonderful comments, but I have a huge pile of laundry to fold.

This is when you break into a chorus of "Hallelujah!" it works for us nearly every time.
And, shouldn't you be asleep?

Do you think the reason no one told us motherhood is as hard as it to either get back at us for our childhood antics or maybe they know we wouldn't have had children if this was going to be our day to day life...FOR YEARS.
I will tell you, it does get better as they get older. I didn't find peace with my kids until the smallest one was 5. Now, they are my absolute JOY and bring me much pride. Hang in there, and remember, those childess people who advise you...will get theirs when their baby comes! LOL!!

Emily said...

I feel so bad for them with the poopy accidents.

Wow, I'm so sorry, but this was too funny! I love that you actually kept track! I hope all your laundry is nice and clean and order has been restored!

The good news is a STINKY day is usually followed by a GREAT day....right? :-))

Laundry is the reason mothers exist, i think...

By the way, I giggled out loud at the pic of Madigan at the park coming down the slide backwards on her's just plain cute.

Nissa said...

That's terrible! And a reason I'm glad I don't have more than 1 toddler. One is stinky enough!

I hope none of your kids has an accident today!

Oh sweetie. what a day! I hate having 2 who have potty accidents. ugh. My girly keeps peeing her pants. She was doing so well.
Much better than the poo though. Sending you a big Mom to Mom hug.

Life As I Know It said...

Ugh, sorry about your stinky day. My 3 year old still isn't potty trained. Hoping the summer will motivate him (and me...I hate potty training!).

Sniz said...

Hi Laura, so sorry about your stinky day! That IS a doozie! Hope it's better tomorrow!

Be well, Sniz

Sounds like stinky is the perfect way to describe your day. I'm very impressed that you only raised your voice once!

I can't tell you how happy I am that my diaper/toilet training days are well in my past. Here's to less stinky days <3

I'm sorry but the image of him pooping when the bus came in to view was too good. Poor fella got so excited he just couldn't take it anymore.

I'm sorry. I know this part is so frustrating. But soon enough it these days will be gone. Hang in there!

Barrie said...

Oh, sorry. It was a yucky day for you. I don't have any deep words of wisdom, but I can assure you that these diaper days will pass. And you won't miss them! ;)

Hang in WILL get better. Good for you for not losing your cool - it wouldn't have helped! Trust me, I speak from experience.
