What can I say, sh*t happens. This is the second time in three days. My patience has run out. Those of you that have never dealt with a pooping-maniac-toddler be very happy. It’s a rotten experience and I’m so done with this stage.
But, if this ever happens to you, follow the steps below.
Step 1: Step out of room to scream and cry.
Step 2: Turn on shower.
Step 3: Fill a bucket with hot water and bleach (lots and lots of bleach!)
Step 4: Return to room (hopefully more calm) and discipline toddler (however you do this in your family).
Step 5: Place toddler in shower and scrub. Make sure toddler does not start licking the tub floor (we had this problem – what is he thinking!). If he does stop him because that’s just nasty.
Step 6: Place toddler on potty in front of bedroom door to watch you clean the mess.
Step 7: Do the dirty work and clean the poop off the flour, bedding, wall etc. while conversing with your toddler:
Me: (with frustrated tone) “what is this?”
Me: “Where does poop go?”
Monkey: “there! there!”
Me: “Nooooooo, where does it go?”
Me: “poop goes in the potty… where does it go?”
Me: “right poop goes in the potty!”
Step 8: Shower and put toddler back in room for hopefully a nap (never happened in our case though).
Hopefully you’ll never have to follow this process 🙂
