poop

just because this is kind of a classic poop story. as a mom i have gotten used to poop and usually i am ok with this part of being a parent, you just deal. well the same day as our great hike i experienced my limit.
we were watching our friends kids for a little bit so we have 5 kids 4 and under at our house. first ezekiel has a full poopy diaper, now that he eats food its gross. butt wiped, all clean. i return to the backyard and pick up josiah to put him into the swing, and touch the bottom of his shoe, oh! dog poop on the shoe and now on my fingers. so bring him inside and take the shoe off and scrub the shoe to get all the #%?!/ out of the little cracks. realize i still smell poop and can't figure out where it is coming from. oh josiah has a poopy diaper and it has leaked through, yes poop can leak. find some new shorts, new diaper. clean butt #2. still smells. oh, my shirt got leaked on; change my shirt. go back outside and ely tells me malachi had an accident. what - this kid has been potty trained for how long?! i'll spare the details but he isn't wet and there in the lawn is big pile of poop. yup. at this point i yell for ryan who takes this kid to the bath. i tell the kids were going inside because abram has just informed me he has poop in his diaper too. one more butt to clean. i look at ely and just ask because we have a trend going here - and she tells me no she doesn't have to poop. four poopy butts, one poopy shoe, one poopy hand and shirt. as angie walked up to get her kids i excused myself to go scoop the poo and it wasn't my dogs. this all happened within an hour time span - never again. sorry i took no pictures, thought i would spare you.
