When $hit hits the….

Warning: This post is dedicated to preparing for poop. After all, double the babies, double the dirty diapers. This may be TMI (Mom, if you’re reading this it stands for too much information) so, if it is, please stop now. 

Today Clara had a blowout. Lucky for me, she was with Daddy this morning since I had to teach a class today. 

I got this text message and I couldn’t help but chuckle:

  
In the words of Forrest Gump, “It happens.” $hit, that is. And a blowout is bound to happen when you’re out and about or in a hurry, so it’s important to be prepared. 

Here’s how to prepare for a blowout disaster:

  • Get a piddle pad (or similar item) for your car seat. This saved the car seat itself from being yucky many times. All you have to do is pull them out and you’re good to go. Just throw the pad in the wash. But don’t forget to put it back in. 
  • This is elementary parenting 101 stuff but ALWAYS have a change of clothes. Don’t forget socks if the weather is cool.   And shoes if you’re a real overachiever. Consider an extra outfit for you too if you’ve got an explosive pooper that makes a habit of this. 
  • Have a trash bag or wet bag for clothes to be laundered, plenty of extra wipes, a towel, and some Clorox wipes in your car. Should a massive blowout occur and obliterate the car seat, you’ll be glad you had this stuff. 
  • Bring a sense of humor. It may be disgusting but it’ll make for a good story….someday!
