Tonight, I was getting the little girls out of the tub and into jammies. Joseph was in the bathroom watching Esther and he yells, "EEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWW!!! Mom, she pooped in the tub!" I got her out, rinsed her off, got her dressed, scrubbed the tub, and put the tub toys in a bleach water solution....such fun! In her 17 months, that girl has pooped in the tub more times than all her siblings combined. It's turning into an almost weekly occurrence. I guess she just relaxes in the tub.
I got all the other kids to bed and it was just me and Esther. We sat in the chair to read stories and she snuggled me. I was thinking how funny it is that I can go from cleaning up poop (one of the more disgusting parts of my job) to being snuggled by a freshly bathed child (does it get any better?). This journey of motherhood truly is amazing!
