Smelliot

This morning Harper had a record-breaking blowout. The kind where there is more poop outside of the diaper than in. The kind where poop ends up in her hair. The kind where there is poop on the new rug and on my shirt. The kind that requires an immediate dip in the tub.

Big brother, of course, was bothered that he didn't get to take an early bath as well. So I calmly explained that Harper was only getting a bath because she had pooped all over herself. What does Elliot do? He looks me squarely in the eye and deliberately pees his pants. As the puddle of urine slowly spreads and starts soaking the leg of my pants (I'm trapped! I have an infant in the tub! I'm completely helpless against the approaching tide!), he looks at me and says, "Now I need a bath, too."

I'm recording this so I can share it at his wedding rehearsal dinner. Or in a full-page ad in his senior yearbook. He deserves it, don't you think?

(Also, I think this is the kind of day that Chris ends up being sort-of glad he had to go into work over the weekend.)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! That is the funniest thing EVER! I'm sorry you had to deal with it and it was probably stressful at the time, but that is the best story ever. I think a full page ad in the senior yearbook would be great payback!

I'm not kidding I'm crying I'm laughing so hard. I can't believe he did that! And horribly sorry you had to deal with it all. I'm also going to have to vote for the senior ad as well. Wow. Sorry Chris was at work...isn't that always how it works.

This is hilarious! I didn't think little kids liked taking baths so much.

ok, I know that was so not funny for you, but I am dying over here. Chalk it up to having a very clever kid?

Best title for a blog post ever.

Yeah, I'm sure you were furious in the moment, but this is the funniest story ever. You should send it to a parenting magazine and win $50 or something.
