Oh Poop

Last Wednesday Gideon turned 11 months old. He celebrated by rolling around in and eating his poop. He has a rash on his butt so I let him go diaper-free in the play pen for 10 minutes while Judith and I made brownies. I smelt something when I was putting it in the oven, but assumed it was the litter box. Then I came out of the kitchen and saw Gideon rolling around in slimy flax-seed-filled poop, and of course eating it too. Surprisingly it didn't freak me out and I just made up a bath for him, cleaned him up and dressed him (complete with diaper!), then threw the entire contents of the playpen in the laundry (thank God the pad in the bottom has a removable cover), toys and all, then scrubbed the sides of it down. And everything was back to normal. Just in time to get the brownies out of the oven! I'm such a mom, lol. Nothing grosses me out anymore.

A little poo never hurt anyone. Besides, now you have a great story to tell when he brings girlfriends over!
