A Tale of Two Poos

A Tale of Two Poos

The Greek God(zilla) had to deal with a floater in the bath on two occassions last week.  TWO. 

Not his own, I might add.  He was toilet trained a long, long, time ago and hardly ever misses the bowl now. 

Nope, the floaters he had to deal with originated from a small toddler shaped bum.  A toddler who has just 3-weeks left in nappies.

The Greek God(zilla) was there to witness the first incident and scooped first the toddler, then the poo, out of the bath. 

An approach I agreed with when he relayed the story back to me later. 

When I had finished laughing.

Although I did question his use of loo roll as a pooper scooper when there were about 65 different plastic bath vessels in various colours covering all available floor space.

“I’ll know for next time” he said when I couldn’t help but point this out to him.

Little did he know then that ‘next time’ would be merely a day away.

The Greek God(zilla) had his back turned during the second incident. 

‘Potty’ called out Zachy.  (Good boy, he is so ready for potty training!)

The Greek God(zilla) continued with whatever else it was he was doing.

‘Potty’ Zachy called out again but it was too late.  Floater no.2 had launched and was already making its maiden voyage.

‘Get me out! Get me OUT!’ screamed Zachy. 

I am not sure how the events unfolded next but when I got home, Zachy was in his PJs running around happily and the Greek God(zilla) was wearing marigolds and disinfecting the bath. 

‘I did a big poo, Mummy’ Zachy said as he flung his arms around me.

‘Well done darling!’

‘No love’ piped up the Greek Godzilla from the bathroom.

It did not take long to put two and two together but I did not want to make Zachy feel bad or embarrassed, so we did not discuss it again until after he went to bed and was out of earshot.

Now, this has not happened again since. 

But, that is no good thing as it seems my sweet little boy has gotten himself into a little bit of a tizz about bare bottomed bathing and is insisting on wearing a nappy.

This poses quite a problem.

And, it has been left to me to crack it.

    Ohhhh that made me laugh out loud. Not poor Zachy and his bare bathing phobia. It was the Greek God(zilla) in Marigolds and shouting “No love” from the bathroom. Hilarious. xxxxx

    We had a spate of these just before we started potty training DD too. Good for Zachy for giving you some notice though, with her the bomb doors just opened! *Chuckles at marigold comment too*
