Game night and poopy bath

This weekend was pretty relaxed. As you can see in my last post, Gavin and I had fun bowling yesterday while Daddy and Evelyn had some bonding time at home. Later that night, we put the kids down and settled in for some game-time. Patrick and I whipped out the Boggle and Scrabble Express (a quick game for traveling). I almost always beat Patrick in Boggle (I think it is all the time I spend on Sodoku and word puzzles in the paper) but I REALLY beat him last night. He quit after I got the words "quart", "quarter" and "quartered" - worth a ton of points. That totally put me over the edge in points. We then moved on to Scrabble where it was neck and neck until the final game - when Patrick was going to win - but couldn't see it. He got sooooo mad at me because I was like, "Ok, game over - you win" - and he didn't see it. So we never really finished (basically since he tossed the game across the table)...but he was going to win. We went to bed late for us (around midnight) and got an unpleasant awakening around 5:45 when the kids BOTH got up. I took them downstairs until 7:30 then Patrick came down and I slept until 9. I am still dragging though!

Then tonight I was giving the kids a bath (Patrick got called in so I was alone) and I took Evie out to get her dressed and when I came back in, Gavin was in mid-poop - IN THE TUB!!! He looked scared like he didn't mean to do it - but he knew it was wrong. I guess I didn't help when I started screaming "Get out - Get out of the tub!" I just didn't want him getting poop on him. I threw him on the toilet and started disinfecting the toys and bath tub right away - I can still smell the bleach!!!! Guess I gotta really scrub it before their next bath... YUCK!

That has happened with 2 of mine so far! It is so gross, you almost want to throw the toys out.

Been there done that! Mine was almost worse though since Carter was throwing the pieces one by one out of the tub and all over the bathroom...
