Has this ever happened to you? I put my 1 year old in the bath, washed him up and threw in some toys...

...turned around and went to brush my teeth while he played in the water a while. I glanced over at him and he was playing with a little green ball. I kept brushing until it dawned on me that I hadn't given him a ball to play with! I rushed over and yes, he had made his own little toy to play with. I had to drain the water, clean the tub and re-wash him and disinfect the tub toys. Three kids and thousands of baths and this has never happened to me before! Has your child ever done similar?

  • Oh yes. I have 3 and so far 2 out of the 3 have done it. My daughter is still a little young, so I figure it's just a matter of time. LOL

  • Yeap, my son had little turds in the tub. It was gross. He laughed his baby head off. Now that he is 13, I tease him about pooping in the tub.

  • Shoot my daughter has pooped in the tub. Not a big deal. Just clean out the tub and start all over again. Part of being a parent. She didn't play with it though. It was just turds floating around. LOL. She was 2. She didn't know any better.

  • Oh, heavens yes! I screamed so loudly the neighbors probably heard me. My DH came running in thinking our son was drowning, to find a couple "floaters!" EEEWWW. We both just had to laugh. And my son who was two said "OOOPSIES!"
