Marking Their Territory

You know how cats pee on things when they are ticked off at you?


I was gone from about 8 a.m. until about 10:30 p.m. Thursday. I went out for a girls’ night out celebration for my office mate’s birthday. We went to dinner straight after work and then to the NHL game downtown.

Friday morning when Caitlin woke up she came into our bedroom and said, “Mommy, my jammies are wet.” She hasn’t wet the bed in several months, but still that’s not a fun thing to wake up to. I gave the girls a bubble bath after breakfast and went to grab a towel for the baby and then Caitlin said, “Mommy Amelia pooped in the tub.”

I guess this is their subversive way of telling me not to go out any more.

    bahahaaaa…tub poop is so gross! Jammie pee I can handle better. Something about scooping wet poop out of water just gives me the creeps.

    After yanking both kids promptly out of the water, even though they would have contentedly played and splashed in poop water, I scooped the poop out with a cup and then dumped it in the potty. I also put bleach in the tub. Apparently some poop “granules” got stuck in the drain, though, and the hubby was the unlucky poop retriever that go round.

    Um. I’m going to pretend I didn’t just read Poop Granules and try not to gag all night (morning sickness set off by some things like POOP in a TUBE)

    Not had to deal with a floater (counting my lucky stars!). Although last week both kids gagged in the swimming pool, and both ended up puking at the edge , and I had to push the bits down through the filter grid. They then insisted on swimming a bit longer.

    However we have just taken posession of a 6 week old kitten! Cute is an understatement. Hoping there won’t be too much poop scooping.

    It might just be the change in routine that caused the accident. For example, did your husband remind her to go potty before bed? If not, may be she couldn’t hold it the entire night. May be dad let her stay up too late and she was too tired to wake up and go. Not sure about your other daughter in the bath tub.
