Oh, Crap

No, literally.

Bun has gone to the little colon who couldn’t to the little colon who cannot stop. I think she poos a little every time she coughs. I must have changed 12 diapers today (and DearDR did another two or three).

On the plus side, Bun doesn’t seem to be in any discomfort; she’s a little red, and we are applying liberal amounts of Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. The very liquid poo is completely odorless, if still utterly gross. And to face it 15 times a day. Well, you can imagine.

Also, I am in a heap of trouble, so Oh, Crap, figuratively, too.

On Thursday, Bun took a short nap. On Friday, at DCL’s she took an even shorter one — about 1/2 hour according to DCL. Today, no nap. Not only no nap — climbed out of the crib. Poo’ed on the glider, on the pad underneath the seat cushion of all things (she took the cushion off and cast it on the floor). At least I don’t have to try to clean that cushion. But: GROSS.

I have no clue what I will do with two toddlers (is 4 years old still toddlerhood?) up all day. I am hoping that the no nap is a blip, an anomaly, and once she feels better, Bun will continue to nap, at least until summer. By summer, if all goes to plan (hey, you, quit laughing) Monkey and Bun will be sharing a room, and quiet time will be initiated. Quiet time will not necessarily have to be quiet (or not totally quiet) but it will have to be confined to their room. For an hour. Maybe two.

I can pretend this is a valid plan. Don’t interrupt my daydream, please.
