Extra foam, no whip.

by statia on April 13, 2007

Babies have impeccable timing when it comes to pooping. I’m sure people would say that it isn’t planned, but I know there’s some secret meeting of the babies, where they strategically plan out their poop schedule. Some good times are:

While waiting in an “active taxi” line for take off (we were 14th in line, but apparently federal law prohibits you from going to the lavatory to change your kid).

As soon as you start feeding them (“Hey ma, I gotta make room in here somehow”), which when this happens at 4AM, changing them wakes them up out of a sound sleep.

As soon as YOU sit down to eat. Ok, now this clearly is just cruel. And anyone who says a baby doesn’t have a sense of humor, has never heard the latte machine go off just as they were about to take a bite of their dinner.

And yes, babies pooping does in fact, sound like a latte machine.

I love you for making me laugh.

I hate you for now associating all noises in Sbux with baby asses.

Also kinda feels like a latte being spilled on you when they take a dump and it squirts out the side of their diaper all over your leg while out in public with no change of clothes for yourself!

Or up the back of the diaper, Dooneybug. Don’t forget THAT loveliness.

Don’t forget when they have on a BRAND NEW outfit and you are about to leave to go somewhere that you want them to look especially cute for. Then they know not just to poop, but to have explosive poop that creeps up the back of the diaper gets all over them and you as well, if they’ve planned it just right.

Wait until he’s older and wears big boy undies and his turd falls out of his underwear, out of his shorts, and right onto the middle of the floor at Chipotle! OMG!

Ahh yes the poop shampoo… I’m familiar with that move Tracy.

Other popular times include right after you’ve changed them and walking out the door to go anywhere.

Ok, I give – Steff totally wins. I have NEVER had that happen.

I’m sure you meant wHip, but, that’s a small niggle. hahaha!

I think you will appreciate the fact that even as I read it, “secret meeting of the babies” was going through my head in the same voice that “candies for the babies” would.

My kids always treated clean diapers as a baby laxative. Couldnt do it in the old used one.

Meredith April 14, 2007 at 7:42 pm

Oh, thank god– I was starting to think that there must be something wrong with my baby and the supersonic poop noises that people can hear several aisles over in the grocery store. But if your baby is noisy too, I’m going to count two as “normal.”
