1:13 to meltdown

Timeline of last night's events:


6:05 pm – walk in the door from daycare with the girls and G’s friend who wants to see our new dog

6:06 pm – realize the new dog has somehow escaped the brand-spankin’-new fence

6:07 pm – begin frantically searching for said new dog, as girls frolic in the sprinklers that are mysteriously running

6:11 pm – realize I can hear the dog’s tags jingle, but still don’t see her

6:13 pm – see the dog’s nose peaking under the fence from inside the next-door neighbor’s fenced yard

6:14 pm – neighbor isn’t home, but open the gate and get dog back anyway

6:17 pm – feed the dog and work on feeding myself

6:21 pm – see a pile of what appears to be cat vomit on the living room carpet

6:23 pm – begin scrubbing the carpet, and realize that it is not vomit, but POOP that resembles chocolate pudding.  From the position on the carpet, I know that it must have been directly deposited from the bum of some animal in my house in that exact location, but I’m unable to pinpoint the source

6:27 pm – sit down to eat dinner, but realize that I’m still smelling poop

6:31 pm – neighbor rings the doorbell to see if I got the dog from his yard.  He put her there because he found her running through the neighborhood

6:37 pm - still smelling poop, but can't locate the source

6:38 pm – G fall off the counter while trying to steal gum – she’s hurt

6:42 pm – finally discover the source of the poop I’m still smelling – Bryn had a massive poo-splosion

6:46 pm – get Bryn cleaned up, and decide to leave her diaper off until bath time

6:51 pm – girls fighting over crayons.  I ground them from the crayons

6:56 pm – Bryn pees off of the barstool, and sprays urine all over the kitchen

7:05 pm – finally get the kitchen clean, and spray air freshener all through the house

7:11 pm – get the girls in the bath

7:13 pm – girls bickering is becoming too much for mommy to handle

7:15 pm – mommy freaks out, scaring Bryn and making G laugh.

7:18 pm – get things under control after G asks if mommy still loves her little stinkers.

What a day! I'm sorry, poop is the worst, although the pee mess had to come into a very close second in my book. Wait no vomit is by far the worse of all the above. lol either way Im sorry. I hope today goes better for you.

Oh my ick. Sorry your day was not going so well.

Lynita said...

I am sorry, I know your pain. I have had those days, and they are truly awful. I hope the rest of your week goes better!

Heather Keele said...

I think you filled your poo clean-up quota for the week. You should be good until next Monday. ;) And I agree with the first commenter - at least you didn't have to deal with vomit. I think that may be worse.

Gina said...

OH Christie I'm so sorry!! However It's great to hear other mom's go through hellish days too!! You need a vacation! Oh and girls and drama I hate to tell you only gets worse as they get older!! Hope you have a better day!!

Ugh, one of those days 'eh?! It's so nice to hear that other people have them besides me. :)

Chelsea said...

I agree with jen (mellie), I'm glad it's not just me who has days like that. :) But I'm sorry it was you!

Jess T said...

I'm trying so hard to stifle my laugh right now. After all, I am at work! :)

Julia said...

What an evening. I can't stand poop messes, but you have to love the poopers.

Omgirl said...

Oh my goodness. That is way too much pee, poop, and dog chasing for one night. For one MONTH even.
