Literally. Have you ever heard the term "S**t happens"? Well, evidently when you are potty training a toddler, it happens all over the floor. Toddler has not quite learned to run to the potty when he needs to go, and since we are using the bare-bottom method it was inevitable that some of his messes would be, well, messy. Today he was downstairs watching a show when I hear him say "Uh-oh". I go downstairs and he has a handful of baby wipes, trying to wipe poop off himself, smearing it on even more in the process. Then he takes a step backwards, into a pile of it and starts crying. I grab the wipes to try to clean it up when I realize there is a trail of it around the coffee table, it's all over Baby's feet because he obviously walked through it creating the trail, and there's no way wipes are going to be enough for the mes. I grab both boys and put them in the tub to spray them off, and scrubbed the carpet. I made sure not to be mad at Toddler because I don't want to make him hate potty training more, and just told him we'll try to make it to the potty next time. Now that I look back it is slightly funnier, but I must say this potty training thing is not all it's cracked up to be. Diapers are much easier!
