Sure, Finn, Rub it in! Kick me when I'm down!

Mari has been feeling pretty worn out lately and was worried she hasn't been enjoying the little things (see previous post).  During the day, she has always looked forward to nap time for a little peace, to clean up, prepare for the next awake time, and, if there is enough time, catch her breath.  

Skip ahead to today's afternoon naptime....

It is time to wake them up, see those beautiful grins and hear the sweet giggles when you open the door.  A certain smell, though very familiar, waded through the air.  BUT, something is different this time. Today, Finn decides he would like to sleep in the buff and, you guessed it, do a little "poopy painting".  Our little artiste doffed his pants and diaper and painted his body, his face, the crib, the curtains, and the floor with his POOP!!!!  Where do you even begin?! Unfortunately, I was at work (bummer) so my baby was flying solo with the Bleach brigade.  

We have been dreading this day and hoping it would never come.  Thankfully, we have good friends who have forged the way.  McNulty's - the pallet of duct tape is on the way!

Oh dear - the first of many new ideas and experiments I'm sure. And of course they will share the knowledge with each other. (OK, I'm laughing). Get the duct tape, and keep smiling. Love you.

Oh guys! Mary, I'm so sorry I laughed at your email.. it's easy to laugh on this side of things! Oh mama, I feel your pain.. boy to I feel your pain.. right down to the clorox stripped finger tips!!!

I love you all so much! Let's hope that was the first and last "poop by nubers" art class.

I know it's no laughing matter right now...but I can't help myself! I'm SO gonna get paid back ten-fold for giggling while reading this post.

I'm so sorry, Mari! Keep yer chin up! You WILL laugh about this someday (or maybe when it's happening to someone me). I give you full permission to laugh it up if the Graf Quads ever develop their paint-by-poop skills.

Love you!

I feel your pain! We are going through the same thing right now. Our son pooped in his crib, got it all over, crawled out of his crib pooped on the floor, and then decided to crawl in his sisters crib and get poop in there. (Along with the walls)! So much Fun! I hope the duct tape works! LOL

Charity Donovan said...

Oh goodness!!! Not what a mother of quads needs to start the 2nd part of her day with! Why do I have a feeling my crew will follow down this path as well??? lol!

Finleypotamus said...

Tell your Finn not to tell my Finn about this. Mine loves to disrobed and take off his diaper too!! I don't want him to realize just how fun painting by poop can be. ;)

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
