Why I Should Shower at Night

For the most part I DO shower at night for 2 reasons: 1) I can take as long as I want. 2) I don't have to worry about the kids.  But last night, as it often happens, I was so worn out from the day that I decided it was better to veg in my cozy bed and watch Flashpoint on Netflix until I fell asleep.
So this morning I took extra precautions and braved a morning shower after I fed the kids breakfast. I turned on Veggie Tales for Aaron, set his potty outside the bathroom in case he had to go, took a bucket of toys in the bathroom for Ethan to play with while I showered and then shut the door so he couldn't escape (and his brother couldn't torment him). Good plan. I would only be 5 min at the max. 
John had just gotten home from work and had gone to the basement to check email and stuff before hitting the sack.  Everything was going fine. So far so good.  About 3 min into my shower in walks Aaron.
"I pooped in the potty!"
"You did?!! Awesome! Way to go Aaron!" Hmmm... I need to wipe his hiney before I have to clean up poop smears.  But I'm dripping wet and my hair is full of shampoo. What's a mom to do?
"Come here Aaron, let's wipe your hiney." I peek out of the shower, grab the wipes which are conveniently on the toilet and make an attempt. Not the best but at least won't make a terrible mess before I get out of the shower or John can help. "Go find your daddy and tell him you pooped in the potty like a big boy!"
But now the door is open and Ethan is escaping to check out his brothers accomplishment. Aaron runs to the door to stop him (all this happens in seconds.) Next thing I hear...
"No, no, no, no, NO!!! ELLIE! DON'T EAT MY POOP!!!"
Enter John who is trying to act happy and proud of Aaron while completely shocked at what our dog has done. Sure enough, more than half of it was missing and there were teeth marks all throughout! Eeeeeeeewwwww!!
John helped clean up and I got out of the shower. Probably won't be doing that again for a while. I can't believe she did that. I expected my children to get into stuff they shouldn't, not my dog!


  1. sad to say, i've been there done that. why would a dog eat poop? gross. and i'm lucky if i shower. you are not alone.
