Steph, over at Adventures in Babywearing, wants to hear our GROSS stories. So, since I have four boys, I thought I would be able to come up with a story or two to contribute… Well, it seems that I can’t decide on my favorite gross story.
I could tell you about the time when my twins were about 15 months old and still sleeping in the same crib each night and for naps. One morning my husband went in to get them out of bed and was appalled and disgusted to find them changing each others diapers – No, I’m not joking. They were actually saying in broken words, “change, daddy!” There was a big brown mess everywhere – On them, on the sheets, on their stuffed toys, on the crib railings, on the walls, even on the floor!! A mess, I’m afraid, that could not be cleaned up with a vacuum!
Or, I could tell you about the moldy Eggos (yes, my kids eat Eggos!) that I found in a drawer in our guest room that my oldest son was supposed to clean! I was beginning to organize my scrapbook supplies in a desk in our spare room, and opened the top desk drawer to find a completely green Eggo, stuck like glue to the bottom of the drawer! It was very difficult to remove, I might add!
There are certainly many more that I could share with you… I have FOUR boys!! But, I think the story I would deam GROSSER than GROSS was an incident that just recently happened. I will not name the two children involved (my twins may be mad at me, if I do :wink:), but here is what happened:
Not too long ago, while my husband and I were working in our backyard, we noticed two particular children were missing. We looked in the garage, in the house, and in the front yard, to no avail. Finally we found them by the garbage cans on the side of the house and were amazed by what we saw… Two boys beating a garbage can full of open poopy diapers, with mini shovels! “What on earth are you doing???” was the only thing my husband could say! “Killing the flies,” was the reply. Quite logical, they thought… Attract the flies, then kill ’em!!!
I would love to hear your gross stories! Please tell me I’m not the only one with more than a few!
