Geysers of Pumpkin Sauce

That’s what was coming out of Phoebe’s butt this afternoon in the middle of changing her. It got on everything: her onesie, the cloth covering the diaper pad, the diaper pad itself. And nothing would make it stop. Not multiple wipes, not a new diaper, nor the one after that. In the confusion, Sari slapped a diaper on her, and somehow not only put it on backward but inside-out! Sleep deprivation leads to creative “solutions.”

In the end, when we put the third diaper on her (properly), the orange stream had slowed down to a trickle. I’m sure that one day epic poems will tell of this poop, but for now this post will have to do.

Other than that, everything’s going great!

    I guess becoming a parent is similar to working as a nurse. After a pretty short time, you no longer realize that what’s just gross-but-funny to you is something most other people DO NOT WANT TO THINK ABOUT AT ALL.
    Heh heh.

    I wish I had the gifts of an epic poet, because I’d love to take this on.

    levels of poop
    we had different levels of rankings for lila’s poops: “explosive”, “atomic” and the rarely seen but often feared “thermonuclear”. Deterrence and mutually assured destruction mean nothing to the newborn intestinal tract!

      Re: levels of poop
