I have been suffering from baby fever lately. Not because I want a baby of my own… nope I am done with that. I have a preteen at home and an adult son who is married and expecting his first child soon. I do not want another 18 year obligation, but I am so ready for my grand baby to get here! That is where the baby fever is coming from. But, this particular post made me think of a funny story that I wanted to share with you all.
When I was pregnant with my son, I was living in Delaware, and my parents were living in New Jersey. He was scheduled for a c-section, so my parents came down to be there with me. What I did not expect was them coming with a pull trailer from U-Haul packed full of baby items. If I remember correctly, either right before I went in to the hospital or while I was there, the trailer was unloaded to my room.
After three days in the hospital, I was ready to come home with my baby boy. When my parents and I got home, my mother and I left my dad downstairs with the baby while we went upstairs so I could check out all of the goodies they brough and get the room baby ready. While we are upstairs, we hear my dad scream, “HONEY!!” He may have actually said, “HONEY COME QUICK!!” I cannot remember for sure. What I do remember was my mother and I hauling ass down the stairs… I was clutching tight to my very sore underbelly while running down the stairs and terrified of what was wrong.
We get down the stairs, look at my dad, and burst out laughing. He was covered in baby poo! I was breastfeeding, so he was not just covered in poo, but it was very grainy poo. Apparently, he went to change his diaper and my beautiful bundle of joy gave a little push and he turbo-shyt up my dad’s arm and across his shirt! Mind you, my dad was this big 6’3″ bohemoth of a man… now covered in poo. The look of shock mixed with disgust was pure gold! It was by far the funniest thing we had every witnessed.
Tizzy Says… I hope you enjoyed this story as much as I enjoyed sharing it. Be sure to share your best baby poo stories with me below in the comments!
