My “little” sister Shannon came for a short visit on Tuesday night. She is always such a joy to have in the house, and she’s fantastic with my babies! 🙂
I was giving the kids a bath on Tuesday night, while Shannon cleaned my kitchen for me, God bless her. When I bathe the kids together, I always take Faith out first, wrap her in a big towel, deposit her in the living room by the diaper and pajamas cabinet, then run back to the bathroom to get Gabriel out of the tub.
Last night, by the time I got back to the living room with her big brother, Faith had escaped from the towel. I was just in time to see her sweet, adorably naked little hiney crawling speedily toward the kitchen. For whatever reason, I decided to put a diaper on Gabriel before going to get her out of the kitchen.
Big mistake, mama.
All of a sudden, I hear: “Eeerin…Eeeeerin……Eeeeeerin!!!”
I looked up to see Faith giggling up at my horrified sister while finishing up with a healthy, well-formed bowl movement–all over herself and my living room carpet.
Before my brain could send even the first signal to my body to respond to the situation, Shannon’s Boston Terrier, Stella, ran to the scene to commence cleanup of the larger…um…pieces.
My poor sister picked up my filthy, naked, now-fussing baby for me and held her out in the air in the backyard over the grass while I used a quarter of a box of baby wipes on Faith.
I’m not buying the cheap, thin brand anymore, by the way.
So much for hoping my newly-engaged little sister’s visit to my house wouldn’t turn her off of the idea of having children…
Does anyone have a good recommendation for a carpet cleaner? I usually use vinegar for carpet stains, and it does great, but I think I need to bring in the guns for this one. Thanks:)
