ORC: Shit Happens
Honestly, I’m not the hugest fan of rugs used outdoors. But I’m even less of a fan of my outdoor hardscape. So, I got this rug from Dash and Albert for our patio lounge area.
It arrived during nap time this past Saturday which was a perfect opportunity to lay it out and to debate wether or not to keep it.
Then, my 20 month old and three year old woke up and I moved on.
It was a hot day and so naturally my girls got naked because that’s what kids do. Right?
The number one unsolicited parenting advice I receive is to potty train in the summer so that your kids can run around naked. Graham suggested we take the diaper off our twenty month old so we can “potty train” her. To which I replied, “what if she poos?” to which he responded “I’ll clean it up” to which I quickly agreed.
We were all four roaming around outside doing our own things when we hear our three year old exclaim, “who pooed on the rug?!”
I ran to the rug and sure enough there was poo, without question, supplied by our 20 month old. And she successfully landed 100% on the rug; there was no half-assing it.
Graham was stuck on clean up duty. He did a very thorough job while the girls and I stood back and watched. Then we flipped the rug over.
So guess what? We’re keeping the rug. But, the good news is that I like it!
See the full monty (of the rug, not my daughter) next week. Until then, here are a few sneak peeks in whats to come…
