Every parent has dealt with poop in the bathtub. It's inevitable. Someday your kid will poop in the bath. I wish there was a way to avoid it, but I haven't been able to find one. It's just a risk of washing your kids...and washing is essential. I don't know what normal people do when their kid poops in the tub, but this is what I did.
The other night I was bathing Wesley and Jarrod was making dinner. Wesley grunted and bam. Poop in the tub. Wesley had soap in his hair and I wasn't really sure what to do. I screamed for Jarrod, grabbed Wesley, and walked to the hallway.
"You take the tub and I'll take Wes," I bark at my husband as I run to the other bathroom. I went into our bathroom and ran the shower. I can count on one hand the number of times Wesley has been in the shower, but I wasn't really sure what else to do. I stripped myself down, all while holding a naked and wet toddler covered in soap. We got in the shower and cleaned off. I got the soap off of him while he screamed and clung to me. He was terrified.
Because Jarrod was cleaning the tub, I had to navigate Wesley and I getting out of the shower. I grabbed a towel and wrapped us both up, drying all his hair while I went. We were singing a song and having a great time. Then I felt warm...
That's right. Pee. Wesley peed on me. Right after we got out of the shower. Right after he pooped in the bath.
This is what it means to be a mom, right? And I didn't even mind. I was kind of impressed!
What do you do when your kid poops in the tub?
