what you never want to wake up to...

"mommy, i have poopoo on my foot" -elijah

so i've been cleaning poop for a while, but on the foot is not a good sign. he walked from somewhere! thank goodness it wasn't as bad as i initally imagined and that besides a few rugs, the entire house has hardwood floors! after a month-long strike of not wearing pajamas, elijah has slept in pajamas without stripping for 2 consecutive nights. the pajamas caused the mess, but since it was minimal i will stop complaining. but waking up to that phrase only means that the mess will most likely continue...

renee also took it upon herself to sleep in panties without telling me--yes she has been potty trained since she was 21 months, but when you sleep 12-14 hours a night and go to bed with a cup of water by your head you still need a pull-up. well, she woke up soon after the first mess was cleaned up to say that her bed was very wet...her bedding had all been washed 2 days ago, due to a full, leaky pull-up. so back into the washer it goes...only this time she had a daycare in her bed, so hopefully all the baby dolls will come out ok too!

don't worry it doesn't end there--as i was taking the bedding to the washer, i heard elijah say, "tee tee" and was walking to the bathroom. i went to supervise, only to find that he was emptying the minature bathtub from renee's doll house that he had peed in! thank goodness again for hardwood floors and easy clean up! i'm hoping that it ends here, but if anyone is in the mood to get their hands dirty feel free to join us!

That sounds like a fun time! I am sorry I missed it! When it rains, it pours, eh? Hopefully you will get more sleep tonight!

Eh, I'm really not looking forward to that stage of parenthood.
