MoThErHoOd is sometimes really gross.

I woke up this morning to a little voice on the baby monitor saying"uh oh beer" (bear) "uh oh beer" repeatedly. I didn't really think much of it being that she says, "uh oh" about a 100 times a day. As I walked to Ryann's room to get her out of bed, I smelled her room way before I reached her door (which is never a good thing). When I opened the door, I found Ryann standing in her room, pjpants off, diaper half off and covered in poop/diarrhea. She had spread the poop all around her crib, sheet, and bumper. She was using her bear to try and clean/wipe herself off. Uh Oh Beer.
This was so incredibly disgusting that I immediately left the room to take a few deep breaths. One bath/shower combo, and three loads of laundry later, we are doing just fine. Motherhood is sometimes really, really gross

Girl, I have been there before. I would say it gets better when they are potty trained, but that would be a lie. =) Hope you are all doing well. Ryann looks so grown up! Can't wait to meet her!

Hahaha!! Although I'm sure it was incredibly disgusting in the moment, you have a GREAT story to share.

I agree, poor beer. Poor, poor beer!

Ugh!!! You and Amy Farell need to compare notes... Elizabeth has performed this trick twice (at the least!) Yuck! So sorry... makes you want to wash your hands all day!
Hang in there! :)

Oh boy! I think I will lose my dinner if this ever happens (and I am sure it's a matter of when, not if). I am sure you handled it with grace! :)

Oh the things we thought we would never do! Thanks for the laugh - I am sure we will get to return the favor and share a similar story with you!

I could read that story many more times. She is hilarious. Makes me laugh every time I read it. Love that girl.

Oh no! What a story you have to tell her when she is older!! But she is so cute...how could you even be upset with her? :)

Oh Erin! What a morning! Poor you, poor Ryann, and poor, poor teddy bear! While it makes for a funny story, I hope that this will be a one-time occurrence!

I know who to call someday for moral support. So, what happened with the bear?
