Well, at least I won't have to have salad for dinner to compensate . . .

I can't believe I'm going to tell this story. It really makes me look bad in soooo many ways. But after reading Laura's post-I figured I could share too.

So-this week we've been potty-training and Josie's been wearing underwear to daycare. Well-the first day wasn't great-right off the bat she had a BM in her underwear. So-I've got two plastic baggies of clothes from daycare to deal with. I didn't get to them until today. Yeah-you see where this is going, right?

I had gone to the store earlier to buy a sled for the upcoming snow and passed by a Doritos display. Now I love me some Doritos-so I bought some. I went home to kill an hour before picking up Josie and indulged in said Doritos and People's Court.

Before heading out-I decided maybe I should start a load of laundry and was greeted with the plastic bags of grossness on the washing machine. Oh yeah . . .

Open the nasty bag and realized that the undies hadn't been, uh, "scraped" . . .(man i don't know how folks with cloth diapers do it). Anyway-I headed to the bathroom to deal with it and immediately started gagging. Now-I can deal with poopy diapers. Not a huge deal-not fun, but better than PUKE-but to clean off the underwear that's been sitting in a plastic bag is disgusting. Because you get to see it all real close and personal. (OMG-am I really writing about POOP?) I kept gagging until soon-back up came the Doritos. At least I was standing right over the toilet.

so yeah-this potty training thing is going to be dandy.

Today-not a single accident at daycare. But then-she hasn't done the deed yet either. . .

Just saw your comment on Laura's blog and came over to see what you wrote about (because apparently I'm a big fan of puke stories) and noticed you're a neighbor here in Portland. So wanted to say hi -- hi!

oh NO! I am so not looking forward to this potty training business.

You are very brave. I think I would have just thrown out the whole lot.

Take my advice - just throw the stuff out. It's not worth contaminating your washing machine over. Not worth spreading the fecal matter into the load done after this one. You will go thru tons of underwear while training and in the years after - it's not worth the time to clean it out. Maybe tell dc to just toss them too and only sent the outer garment home for washing. That way you don't have to sort thru it and open that dreadful bag.....

Oh. My. Gawd. When I was insisting puke was the nastiest thing ever, I hadn't considered calcified poop in a plastic bag. you totally win. GROSS!!! Thanks for sharing - you know I love a nasty story. :) Um, this is the reason I'm NEVER potty training Mattix. I'm going to let social pressure and embarrassment do it for me. So what that he'll be six in pull ups? He's small...they'll fit.

Thanks for the very good question...not offended at all and will do my best to answer it. actually, i should probable devote a whole post to it because it's a long answer:)
Glad to hear Ms. Josie had a fun Christmas! And, um, you pretty much summed up why i'm struggling so much to encourage Jack to potty train. and yeah, we actually did cloth diapers with him and i just can't bring myself to go back to that. travis keeps trying to convince me we should be using them to save $ and the environment, but i CAN'T DO IT!! it made me dry heave when i only had to clean 1 kid's diapers! since i probably change an average of 7 poopy diapers a day (yeah, my kids are dumpers!), i would be barfing all day everyday. no fun!
