Bathtime Fun

Remember how I mentioned C’s big poopy time a few posts down?  And how it’s always in the evening?  Well, we went to give her bath tonight before her big poopy time, and we should have waited.  She pooped in the tub.  Not once, but twice.  J cleaned out the tub after the first one, so then we put her back in, and she did an even bigger one.  Fun times!

Lesson:  never give C a bath before her evening poop!

You know you are tired when...

I washed a dirty disposable diaper last night.  Trying to do laundry while completely exhausted doesn’t really work apparently.

And I guess changing diapers in the middle of the night doesn’t work either because J put that diaper on the floor after he changed C.  The diaper genie didn’t have a refill in it, so the floor was the next best option.  Or so he says.

Put some dirty baby clothes on top of the dirty diaper, and when a completely exhausted mom does laundry, she’ll pick up everything and wash it all.  Even the dirty diaper.

My first week back at school has exhausted me….if you couldn’t tell.

Diaper Blowouts

These diaper blowouts are driving me insane!  They happen at least 5 times a week, and they ruin her clothes.  We heard that going up a size would help, and we thought she might be ready for a bigger size anyway, so we tried a size 2 (which starts at 12 pounds….she’s only 11.5 right now).  Well, they seemed fine for about 6 days, and then tonight the diaper totally failed.  Ahhh!  So frustrating.  We’ve tried different sizes, different brands, different ways of tightening them, and nothing seems to help.

The main problem, and what is probably ultimately leading up to these blowouts, is that she doesn’t seem to poop regularly throughout the day.  She saves them up for the evening–between 4 and 7 every night.  So when it comes, it’s full force.  We don’t think anything is wrong with her because she still has at least 4 bms a day.  It’s just that the evening ones are huge.  Blech.

Totally Toddler spray helps get some of the stains out, but it doesn’t get everything.  Oh well.  At least you don’t see the back side in pictures.  I just hate having stains on her clothes….especially if we have another girl someday.

Haha, sorry for the gross post.  This topic has been bothering me for a long time now.  I want to figure out how to make this stop.  Otherwise, we are in for a long, hard time until potty training.

Gotta go back to work

Well, I have to go back to work tomorrow, and I really don't want to.  At all.  I already have a family blog, but I wanted to make another one that was annoymous.  You know, so my job won't fire me for posting bad things.  Well, not really bad things, but complaints about working when I'd rather be at home with my baby. 

I'm trying think positive thoughts about going back to work, so we'll see how this works.  However, I don't think I'll enjoy work at all.  Crap, there goes the positive thinking!
