So I don’t have much time to write because I need to get to bed, but I had to share this story.

I was working on the computer today, and Joe Mac (Maggie’s nanny/manny) was trying to get Maggie to take a nap before her speech therapy evaluation. She didn’t want to, so she’s just laying in the crib screaming, or so we thought. So, she’s crying, and he goes in to try to give her a bottle to see if she’s hungry. I’m listening on the baby monitor…it goes something like this…

Joe Mac: Hey Maggie, look! I brought you a bo-ttle!


Joe Mac: Hey, what’s that?


Joe Mac: Hey…that’s…MOMMY!!!!

So I run in, and I see Maggie, screaming her head off, with little round deer-looking poo in both hands, and all in her teeth. I mean, all in her teeth. Is this where the phrase “(poo) eating grin” came from?

Joe Mac is panicked, and now, so am I. I grab her, trying to keep a hold of each arm so she doesn’t put more poo in her mouth or on me, and run to the bathroom. I put her in the tub (still in her clothes, that have somehow managed to not be covered in poo), and start frantically trying to figure out what to do. I had Joe Mac get a wash cloth to get most of the poo out of Maggie’s mouth, then I had him her her tooth brush. I got the poo out of her hands, got her clothes off, and started running a bath. She was still screaming bloody murder, as I imagine I would if I had poo in my mouth.

About this time I realized that she had to have dug this poo out of her diaper, because it wasn’t all over everything (not on her clothes, not really in the crib except one tiny smudge, etc.). It wasn’t even on her legs. Just in her hands and teeth.

I wonder if poor Joe Mac will come back on Wednesday…not sure if I would if I were him.

    Oh, that’s awful! Payton has done this same thing - went thru a phase of it and we finally got it stopped. Whew, was I ever glad to get that stopped. Joe Mac will be back - he couldn’t handle not seeing Maggie’s precious face :)
