  • I understand not disciplining for accidents, but finger painting with it was NOT an accident.

    Last time my DD did that, she got handed the washrag to clean it up. I of course went over it after her, but I did have her attempt to clean it up.

  • When my son takes off his diaper I put uncomfortable pants on him lol. He hasn't tried the poop trick yet but I hear it's normal and to be expected, even though it's totally gross. They are little - they don't understand how gross it is.

  • He did help me wipe it! first no lol. He saw me spray the cleaner on an area and grabbed my purse to wipe it up. I screamed, and handed him the rag LMAO. He didnt do any of this on purpose, I know that...I think he was just feeling the poop, it was squishy and it spread around like paint. I'm least i'm hoping this won't happen again. thank you getrealmama for the encouragement that this is normal behavior. That DEFINATELY makes me feel better :)
    Thank goodness I am here and SO isnt...he would have locked himself in the bathroom throwing up lol.
