Disgusting!

I had my first (and PLEASE, GOD, only!) experience with "Poop Painting" today. I intervened shortly after the artistic expression began, so it was not as bad as it could of been...but, really, just disgusting!

They were so quiet, watching a favorite video...when am I going to learn that leaving the room is a bad idea?

AAAAAHHHHH!!! so i hope you didn't have to clean that by yourself! that definitely called for team effort - hope ryland was around to help. ick ick ick. and no photos for us? come on, jen! :)

Of course, it happened on a call weekend when Ryland is in the OR dealing with strangers' bowels...
No help cleaning, unless you count the crowd of little people staring with big eyes and saying, "Yucky. Poop."
It actually was a window that was painted, so I was able to clean and sterilize much easier than if it had been on say a chair or a rug or something. Thank heavens for small favors, huh?
And as for pictures, no need for those...I don't think I'll be able to forget this for a while!

Oh, I don't know if I could stomach that one. Glad it was rather easy to clean. Thankfully we have not encountered that one, but we're not done with diapers yet either. Better not get my hopes up yet.

Egads ... I fear that something just like this lies in wait for me. Especially since our kids have figured out how to undress themselves recently.

You know - your trio had so much fun fingerpainting the other day, I think they just wanted to experience with a new medium.

Ha Ha ... glad it's not me. Yet...!!!!

I worked with three's way back when in Mothers day out. We had this child that snuck and did that ALL the time. I told him if he never did that again we would pudding paint on a plate. You was there hands really good then you put pudding on paper plates and let them paint with pudding.
Jen this child smeared it all over his face and everywhere. I am so glad you did not have that.

Hey Jen! I'm just getting caught up on all your last several posts; I've been swamped in "real" life here lately:) Your three are so stinking adorable I could forgive them for anything--even poo painting!!

Yikes, I have'nt had to experience that yet. (Knock on wood) Good thing you caught it sooner rather than later.

Alison said...

So glad my gang are past the age wherethat is even a remote possibility!!!

Wendy said...

Yuck! That brings back memories for me. No fun! Good thing God made them so cute, huh.

Thanks for coming to visit

I'm guessing you won't be leaving them alone in a room anytime soon - say in the next 18 years or so.

Teresa said...

Definitely GROSS! Mine are so "monkey see, monkey do" if one did it, the other would be SURE to join in on the fun!

I really hope I don't have to experience this....but you know I've just totally jinxed myself!

Jen3 @ Amazing Trips said...

Hey Jen - I was just checking out Sarah's comment to you and I had to chuckle. Do you think she intended the pun "they are so stinking cute"? :)

Following nap time today, one of our kids was completely undressed in their crib. Thankfully, the dirty diaper was thrown on the floor and not used as war paint.

I just KNOW this is going to happen soon for me, though. I can sense it...

Diana said...

Jen, so glad you keep making updates. I really miss hearing the 'triple' tales in the OR.

Tammy said...

Yuckie-poo! I didn't have to deal with that, luckily. But I do remember when my second was a newborn...I was changing her in the middle of the night and a fountain of poop sprayed up! And on me!

I like to check in your blog now and then...it's so fun to see what's happening with those cutie-pies. Even if it's poop painting! ;)
