which do you want first?

Good news: I got all the laundry (like, every clothing item we own) clean.

Bad news: It is sitting in a crumpled-up pile and I have to put it all away.

.

Good news: Luke is very good at helping me put laundry away.

Bad news: Tomorrow is Luke's birthday so I feel obligated to put it all away myself as a gesture of appreciation.

Good news: After several weeks of cleaning dirty Batman underwear (and taking all the best toys away) Clark has stopped his pooping-in-the-toilet-strike and will, willingly, poop in the toilet again.

Bad news: He walked into my bedroom with poop all over his feet a couple of hours ago and we still have no idea where he pooped. Very unlikely it was in the toilet unless he snuck into the bathroom like a small ninja and then quietly flushed the toilet and cleaned up after himself.

.

Good news: After a thorough investigation, it's looking more and more like it's the ninja thing. He secretly pooped on the toilet himself.

Bad news: Before we noticed he was covered in poop he sat on the large pile of clean clothes.
More than sat in it.
Rolled in it.
Played "airplane" in it.
It is all being transported back to the laundry room.

.

Good news: By the time I get all the laundry washed and dried again, it won't be Luke's birthday anymore and I will have help putting it away.

Bad news: None. Unless you're Luke.

  1. Parenting is just replete with poop mysteries. They are pretty much the worst mysteries ever.

  2. It's official: I do not want to start potty training. They'll figure it out themselves before high school, right?

  9. The good news is I cracked up when I read this...the bad news is, it looks like my days of dealing with lots of poop have just begun. Ahh, the joys of parenting :)

  10. Perfect.

    (And you may already know that when Bob had a mystery poop that disappeared, he let us know that it was in our dog's tummy. A delicacy.)

  12. Lol is totally overused...but lol. Girl, you are funny. Levi has shown some interest in the potty lately. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of leaving him on his little potty while I ran into the other room to grab something. Somehow, in the two seconds I was gone, he managed to miss his potty and instead poop on the baseboards and floor. While I was cleaning it up, he peed...on the floor...of course.

  13. adorable...I love this post because it says so much about what motherhood is sometimes: laundry and poop. In the last six months since I became a mommy, this is my life in a nutshell.

  16. This post is hilarious. The poop on the feet and then on the clean laundry is not hilarious. But you? Hilarious.
