My big adventure--why do they always involve poop these days?

Warning, this is gross.
So, today was my first day "Cleaning poop from in between my baby's toes." I am seriously hoping it is my last as well, but given her ability to get poop where it should never be, I doubt that.
Sam decided to have a diaper blowout in her exersaucer, and before I could notice, she spent about 5 minutes dancing in and smearing the poop that had fallen into the plastic disk under her. Nice.
It was like a horribly perverse finger-painting under the exersaucer.
When Daniel came home, the clean freak got the best of him and Captain Supportive merely said "Thank heaven it didn't get on the carpet! Oh well, whatever." Yeah, you spend 15 minutes cleaning up a poo painting and trying to scrub miniscule toenails and we'll see how many "whatevers" you toss out then, pal.
Anyway, just another lovely tale of poopies gone wrong at my house. At least she's not on solids so it doesn't stink. I fear the day it starts to stink, I have a really bad gag reflex. Everyday is at least a two outfit day around here. I can't tell if the Huggies are just lousy diapers or my daughter is particularly talented. It could be talent, she does seem to enjoy watching me discover her mess. Maybe she's just enjoying the look on my face and exasperated "Oh, Samantha!!!!" sigh that comes out of my mouth at least 10 times during the clean up. She is always all smiles and giggles while I work to reverse her latest exploit.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love being a mom? Really, despite the #2 incidents, I do.

That is pretty gross Carly-I've never considered how toe painting with poop might occur, but there's the obvious answer! If it makes you feel better, Jordan had his first major poop explosion after we played Bball on Monday-we got back and realized why he had been so happy, who wouldn't be happy once you were relieved from a pile of mush, which had travelled up his back and his belly? Bad things is, he does eat baby food, thus it did stink....sorry to mom for dumping that in your garbage!:)

Just wait until she figures out how to take it out of the diaper and smear it on the walls. Or when the diaper fails and she's on solids so you find little chocolate chip sized nuggets everywhere. Yes, I have lots of poop stories. It only gets more stinky as they get older...hee, hee, hee.

That just cracks me up Carly! I haven't gotten to that level of poop-gone-bad, but Jovie has pooped and peed while changing her...and let's just say I've enjoyed other things more! I too love being a mommy!!
