Attacked By Flying Poop

For those who have been visiting me from the beginning, this story will probably sound familiar to you. It’s not something I care to relive but I’m doing it just for you, Karen.
It was a typical Monday morning when I was preparing to go to work. I’m usually running around in a mad rush trying to get everyone ready and out of the house on time. However, on this day, I was actually ahead of schedule. I had enough time to drop Girlie Girl off at school, Baby Bug at my parents’ house, and even make a quick stop at Starbucks. Things were looking good!
We were just about ready to leave when I heard a strange sound coming from Baby Bug’s tummy. Now, all my Mommy experiences should have told me to just leave well enough alone. However, my curiosity got the best of me and I opened up her diaper to see what was going on.
The next thing I knew, I was being attacked by flying poop. It was everywhere . . . on the bed, on my clothes, in my hair . . . and ARGHHHHH . . . on my face! I froze in horror. Baby Bug must have felt a lot better since she was now happily squirming in it.
When what happened finally hit me, I knew I had to do something to clean up the mess. But what to do first? Should I clean the bed since the cats were now leaving poop tracks everywhere? Do I clean myself up before the stench started to sink into my pores? Do I clean up Baby Bug before she buries herself in it?
All of a sudden, Girlie Girl appeared at the door and yelled, “Ewww, Mommy, you have doo doo all over you!”
So what started as a peaceful morning turned into chaos as both Baby Bug and I showered and got changed. I stripped the bed and threw everything into the wash. The cats were put outside until I could later wash their paws. We then raced out of the house.
Believe it or not, Girlie Girl made it to school on time and I was able to get on the plane before it left the gate. Starbucks would just have to wait for another time.
BTW, there are 2 contests going on right now that I’m entering this post in.
