A tale of peril and woe

I have been called fearless...audacious...bold... I had my wisdom tooth removed; sans anesthesia. I gave birth to a 9 1/2 pound baby; vaginally. I made my husband cut his hair once. I killed a scorpion with a shovel. I wax every summer. Minstrals have been known to sing of me.

But today. Today I almost met my match.

Now those of you that are parents will know what I mean when I say the words "blow-out". Many of you will even ask, as did my husband, "Was it a bad one? Was it a throw-away-the-outfit-and-cut-your-losses-blow-out?" And I would answer no...oh no it was so much worse. This was a burn-your-house-down-and-count-yourself-lucky-blow-out. This was epic. Minstrels will never sing of this day, out of respect, for the dead.

Let me set the scene.

Zeke had just finished eating no less than a cup and a half of applesauce for lunch. It was roughly a half hour passed his nap time and he was still going strong playing underneath the table with a spoon. I was on I.M. with my husband. Probably complaining that Zeke wasn't tired. I don't really remember. My memory right before the "event" is a little fuzzy.

But that is when it happened. And it started with a smell. The words "chemical warfare" came to mind, but then I also heard a noise. Grunting. And something else I don't think I have the stomach yet to describe.

I quickly told Josh I was going to change a diaper and then force Z to take his nap. The naivete! I still didn't know what I was up against.

Panic began when I laid Zeke down on his changing table suddenly to notice there was poop all the way up my arm. My arm! And my shirt! Another white shirt gone.

I breathed slowly. I started repeating my birthing mantra. I took off my shirt. "I can do this," I told myself. Just breathe thru it.

But then I looked down at my son.

It would be more logical to name the places of his body that were NOT covered in feces. But it is more therapeutic to name all the places that were. So it had gone up his back all the way into his hair line, where it looked like he had smeared it into his ear and across his face while I took my shirt off. He was now rubbing both hands in it and I used my last ounce of strength to throw a binky in his mouth before it went THERE. At this point I think I blacked out for a few seconds.

It was only when I came back that I noticed it was also seeping out of both the leg-holes of his jeans. Into his socks. Where is the safe exit point!?! I really started to panic now. Usually if the poo goes down I pull his onesie down, if it goes up I pull the onesie up! I contemplate scissors. I dont think I can carry him into the kitchen to get some. I dont want to touch him at all, to tell the truth. Nor do I want to have to throw away my good scissors.

Meanwhile Zeke is having a grande old time playing with his own poop but is starting to get impatient to get back to the ground. He starts flailing around, which is just splattering it all over the carpet, the walls, me... I have to think fast. Its time for action.

I hold my breath, say a prayer, and as quickly as possible take off all his clothes using only two fingers. The sight I behold cannot be explained in words. Wipes seem ridiculous.

I pick him up, holding him as far away from my body as possible, and carry him to the tub. I resist the urge to physically throw him in and start the water. Soon I have to start washing. I begin with throwing cups of clean water at him from afar. That helps. It gets him at least to the point where I can safely touch him. Soap, water, q-tips in the ears.

Ok, I am breathing. I am able to dress him and put him down for a nap. Then I tackle the mess on and surrounding his changing table. A hero's battles are never done.

YUCK!! Thanks for the mental picture. lol. Isn't that the worst?? The joys of being a SAHM. You totally should have taken pictures!! :P And I like the second tagline, with the chocolate and coffee. But then again I just like anything with chocolate!!

Kait T said...

Don't you think it's by the grace of God that this didn't happen during a playdate! LOL

Anonymous said...

Both tag lines are great! I say rotate them every week or two. Also, that story is awesome! Well awesome to read....

Sheryl said...

What a story...

I once saw this phrase:

Give me chocolate and nobody gets hurt.

Michele Horne said...

I prefer the first line.

Michelle said...

OH MY GOODNESS. I"M ROLLING...and ONLY a mother would understand.

I think I would have put him, clothes and all, in the tub.

And for the record...sposies are the only blow outs I've ever had. Disposables, no blow outs. Crazy huh?

Diaperswappers.com has them for cheaper..and I just buy one or two a payday when preggo...and um..even now...don't tell. (I do buy newborn diapers brand new because I want a specific brand that are just too soft and cuddly.)

Future Mama said...

Haha! that is TOO FUNNY! I've read about blowouts before but this must be one of the funniest! lol! happy sits day!

Jasmin said...

Oh my goodness. I could almost smell the poop the way you described the incident. I think I would have thrown up all over the place had that happened to me. Then again, I'm not a mama yet so I'm not sure.

Congrats on your SITS day!

BJ_Mama said...

HILARIOUS! Reminds me of the time it happened to my husband and he yells for my help in the "POOP EMERGENCY" from upstairs....of course, he then shares this with the person who attempted to call our phone just then too!

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

This is hilarious! I could just picture the huge mess, EEWW! i bet he doesn't get applesauce for awhile. So funny throwing water on him from afar! What a horrible day you had here.

Visiting through SITS.

Every mother must have at least one poop story!

Great one! (Although not for you, I'm sure).

glenna said...

Your post brings back long forgotten memories. LOL

MrsM said...

Happy FB day! I can honestly tell you that our oldest two have both had a few of those (our youngest is still only 2 months, so she'll need more time to work up to it). They are NOT. COOL. When it gets so bad that I'd have to use a box of wipes to fix them I put them in the shower and just let them sit under it for a few minutes.

Thank God for potty training-I don't think any parent could last through things like that forever! Sounds like you did well though =)

WhiteSockGirl said...

That was funny to read! Though I am sure you did not have any fun cleaning up the mess!

oh damn! so far it never was that bad .... i hope it never will...

Amy said...

What a story...yikes...Happy SITS day!

Caroline Alexander said...

I remember those days. I think a really good one comes and gets us all once. Our happend in the car on the way to a restoraunt. What do then? It was terrible, but I laugh now.

Queenie Jeannie said...

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh hun, I have SOOO been there, done that! It's awful and funny at the same time!!!

Hugs!

HAHA...great post.

Happy SITS day.

mommytoalot said...

Wow and Ewwwwwwwww ...
can't say i've had anything comparable.

knit1kids4 said...

OH yes... been there... happened once in public when we had no extra clothes with us. (what were we thinking). We chucked the outfit stopped at Target and started again!

Jacky said...

Ooooh my...I am so glad you survived. Oh what joys await me in the throes of motherhood! =D

Happy SITS Day!

Sharon said...

I nominate you for the Purple Heart.

Well done SITSah.

Becky @ Our Sweet Peas said...

Ah, motherhood, such bliss! I too have had similar blow outs. With twins sometimes it felt like it was daily but thankfully only a couple were as bad as you are describing. Glad that you survived. :)

Astrid said...

Now that's something I don't miss ...blow-outs from my girlies. LOL! I'm so glad we're done with that stage!!!

Happy SITS day!

Mommys Online Garage Sale said...

Funny story, the things our Mother's never warned us about, lol.

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Haha...I have definitely been there! We don't get a break, do we? :)

Creative Junkie said...

Even though my uterus is in retirement, I think it just went screaming out of the room.

I am *so* glad those days are over for me.

Kelly said...

You should receive some kind of badge or metal for making it though that battle and still be able to talk about it.

Kirsten said...

You surely have a way with words. God, that was a great story and thank you for bringing back those memories. I do not miss "Blow-Outs"!

countryfriedmama said...

At least when something like that happens you can think, "Well, it will be a good story for the blog."

McVal said...

Oh my! That's when you take him outside and hose him down!

Melinda said...

When my oldest (who is now 12) was about 6 months old, she had a similar blowout of epic proprotions. I still remember it vividly 12 years later. I happened to be at the beach when it happened and had to do all the changing and cleanup you described in a tiny, icky beach bathroom w/no changing table!! Oh, the agonies of motherhood!!! ;0)

Sandy Fights Fat and Blogs About Nothing said...

Congrats on being the SITS Featured Blogger! What a terrific post to begin with--funny yet horrifying! ROFLMAO

Your description of the event was so vivid that I almost had a bout of the dry heaves.

This reminds me of the time my mother gave my now 15yo son two pieces of pumpkin pie as a baby. The smell was so pungent that I started gagging from 10 feet away...since my mother was laughing and since she was the culprit responsible for the pumpkin pie in the diaper episode, I insisted she change him--and she did.

Have a super day!

Life of a Stepmama said...

OMG that is horrible!!!! I thought I had a bad blow out but it was no where near that!! I give you major kudos, that sounded down right disgusting!

Eva Gallant said...

OMG! That was waay to descriptive before breakfast...I won't be able to eat until at least lunch!!lol

congrats!

Stop by and say Hi between blowouts if you can!

roadrunner201 said...

Holy smokes! I can imagine the mess I would have on my hand if my little guy ate that much apple sauce! (And we cloth diaper, so, YIKES!)

Such a cute little guy!

Happy SITS day!

Julie said...

It is funny to read about now, I am sure it was not at all funny at the time. Isn't it amazing what apple juice/sauce does to kids?
;-)

Happy SITS day!

sandy said...

Blow outs are the worst! I worked in the baby room of a daycare center for 15 yrs., so I have seen my fair share. Only we did not have the benefit of a bathtub to hose them off!

Daphne said...

My goodness! I'm not sure if your experience is worse or mine...

Oh my goodness! Anyone thinking about having kids should read this! Or, it should be read aloud in high schools as a form of birth control :)

At least you can laugh about it now... right? Happy SITS day!

Blow out INDEED! NIce to see you survived all THAT! :o) Happy SITS day mama.

My best, Lynn

Morgan said...

OH.MY.GOSH!!! I officially just puked in my mouth! You poor thing! This is a classic example of why mom's are the most amazing creatures of mankind.

Congrats on being FB over at SITS!!!

What a well written story about the infamous poo-splosion. I'm here from SITS (congrats on being the FB!) and have to say that as an Aunt, even I have faced the a forceful diaper or two.

Lani said...

ohhhhhh yuck.
Happy SITS day!!

Reluctant Housewife said...

Whoa! Epic blowout. EPIC.

The minstrals are not singing... they`re shaking in fear and whispering out of respect. Epic.

You killed a scorpion with a shovel? Go, you!

This was a very funny and well told story. The first paragraph alone, along with the reference to minstrals, was so funny I`m going follow you.

Great blog!

withoutadornment said...

Wow. That's all I have to say. I guess when you have kids you discover a whole bunch of things that you never thought were possible can happen.

Happy SITS day!

Robin said...

Well, I am 52 and my girls are now women......and until now, the only blowout I knew of was referring to a flat tire. And from your descriptions, I am so glad that I never experienced that. Yuck!!

I hope your day is beautiful.....and a whole lot cleaner. :-)

Jamie said...

LOL I remember those days. Oh goodness!

Kerri said...

Oh my GOSH that was hilarious! I to, have experienced the blow out..it was actually about 4 in a row, but we never got to the HAIRLINE! You are one brave woman!

Collier Chronicles said...

This is great! I am thankful to never experienced this, yet!

The Dapper Darling said...

hehe...I can relate

aforestfrolic said...

Oh my, I've had that happen once or twice...but your description is hilarious! So glad you made it through, tee hee.

Jamie :)

jori-o said...

You'll go down in history for taming that one, my dear!

Michelle said...

I KNEW IT!!!! You being pregnant just threw me. Last time I was hear I read this story. I commented about cloth diapers, trying to convert you.

Marrdy said...

Gross! And so very funny. I think we all have to live through one of these in our lifetime!

Cher said...

holy-moly. yuck. You are THE. MOM. shouldn't be there some kind of invention to prevent this sort of thing? I think I'll wait to have kids until it's on the market..

Danielle (Life with the Hewitt Family) said...

Oh my goodness! That is the worst one I have ever heard of! At least you were at home and able to get him all cleaned up. Yuck, Yuck, Yuck!

Mary said...

Um, yuck. It's been awhile for me & I don't think I've quite experienced this (thankfully!) so I admit I couldn't make it all the way through this post.

Hope you have a happy SITS day.

Lamonica Epps said...

That was a terrible blow-out. Thank goodness he didn't get any in his mouth.

tinahead81 said...

LOL! i have a similar story, so i can relate. but i don't think i have ever told it as awesomely as you have! aahh, the "joys" of motherhood!

happy sits day!!

Helene said...

If it makes you feel any better, I've experienced the very same thing....more than I'd like to remember. I remember once my big twins had the flu and the little twins were on the verge of showing symptoms and I seriously considered sticking my head in the oven. Between the puking and the pooping, I thought I'd lose my mind. And then I got sick on top of it all...so there I was dealing with symptoms myself while all 4 kids were sick too. Not a happy memory in my mind at all.

BTW, I wear white shirts too all the time. Why? Why do I do this?? I have no idea. My husband laughs at me when he sees me coming home from Target with a bag full of new white t's. He's like "you know that's just wasting our money, right?".

Stefany said...

Oh my! That sounds quite horrible. lol

Mama Roho said...

Um, GROSS! You are much better than me! I would have put him in the tub with all of his clothes on and turned on the shower!!!

Crazy in Alaska said...

Oh boy does that bring back some memories! Too funny!

Just stopping by from SITS. Congrats on being Featured.

That sounds terrible! Seems like you handled it quite well.

Sara said...

I quite literally laughed until I cried on this post. I have absolutely no doubt that this wasn't even close to being funny at the time, but sweet mother of pearl, it's a great story!

JaelCustomDesigns said...

I've been exactly where you were! Lol I can empathize with you whole heartedly. Happy SITS Day!

Bentley Boutique said...

OMG!!! Whew, this brings back memories when one of my twins was a baby and had been taking antibiotics for a week. We were at Lubys when the blowout occured, and it was running down the highchair to the floor. I had to bathe him in the bathroom sink at Lubys, with paper towels, and take him out wearing nothing but a diaper... and it was snowing outside!!YUK. How can something so cute manage to do something so gross????

Sturgmom said...

We have ALL been there! Happy SITS day!

Kami said...

ACK! I've been there! I had to cut a few cute onsies off my daughter and toss her in the bath, and throw out half of my outfit...
So glad I haven't had one of those in months!

Brandy said...

That was a whole different category...blowout doesn't do that description any justice. Yuck!

Rebecca said...

Yuck! I can't even imagine...

Elizabeth Patch said...

you're not a real mom unless you've had at least one fully poop-covered event! funny!

Becca said...

That's hilarious and horrific all at the same time. Don't you feel even more superwomanly now that you got through it?

Cole said...

This happened to me with my oldest son. Only he was in his playpen when it happened. The playpen had to be taken outside and hosed down. It was never the same after that...come to think of it, I've never been the same either!

Unknown Mami said...

You did good! Damn good!

Jodie said...

Oh my gosh! That was definitely a blow out! Happy SITS day!

My Household Junk said...

Oh my goodness. I have had those days and they aren't pretty. Just remember, the smell will eventually leave your nose. It will smell like sulfer for a while everywhere you go, then burnt amber, then finally, things will get back to normal.

This will be one of my fab five friday posts on 8/14! http://myhouseholdjunk.com.

Oh the glamorous life of the mother. LOL

Anonymous said...

Ummm. I guess I never understand why people want to share these stories with others. Shit happens, obviously, but I never found it to be worthy of a post. It especially baffles me why someone would want to choose this as their "featured" post as this is the 2nd time I've seen a story like this featured. More power to ya, I guess. Blech!

Lance and Jewls said...

Holy grossness! That sounds like a battle and a have! Way to go supermom!! :)

K said...

I hate those days. No fun at all.

Glad everyone survived.

Date Girl said...

ACKKKK! I started cracking up at my desk. How horrible! I was horrified at the image of poo splattering all over the walls and carpet. You poor thing!

Michelle said...

Visiting from SITS!

The whole time I was thinking, "carry him to the tub." Glad you made it out alive. You will have more poop and vomit to clean up as he gets older too!

Kay said...

If high school sex ed classes would just hire you to tell your tale of bravery, they'd never have to worry about a thing!
Your post is hilarious, but I can imagine it only seems so to you after the fact!

Are You There Mom? said...

Been there done....well not quite that bad! haha Never had to use a q-tip!

Christian Mommy Writer said...

Absolutely Hilarious!

I had a similar experience at a Scrapbooking store. My son had got poop all over his clothes and the backseat of the car. GROSS!

Things we go through as a parent...

Always nice to meet a SITSta & a sister in the Lord!

Aleta said...

I don't have any children, so I didn't know what a blow out was. Ummm, thanks... yeah.... I will know if we ever have children now what one can go up against - YUCK! Lol

La Belle Mere UK said...

Thanks for that! As a childless step mum I thank the lord that I skipped the sh*tty nappy stage and went straight to the part where they can pretty much look after themselves!!!

Happy SITS day. xx

John Deere Mom said...

I love how you wrote this! I don't think I have ever experienced a blow out like this, although I have been know to trash an outfit after one. And I may or may not have considered throwing out the poop-covered kid as well. :)

Lisa said...

Ah, motherhood....no one warns us of chemical warfare!! Poop is the worst isn't it?
At least he didn't paint with it....that's happened a few times to me...YUCK!!

Norine said...

Ah, the Joys of Parenting! Naturally, being a mother, I've had my fair share of vomit down my bra. In fact I just had to write a blog about it the last time I got OUT of cleaning up a horrific mess:

Flory said...

What a story! You painted a good picture of it. I had something similar happen to my little girl when she was one - she's three now. My husband walked in and saw her playing with her poop and he couldn't stop gagging. It was priceless!

firststepforward said...

Gross gross gross!! You are so brave, I think I would have had a complete meltdown!

Happy SITS day!!

You sparked old memories in me. My daughter's 29 but I remember some blow out doozies. Better you than me. :) Happy SITS day!

Every time I feel sorry for myself for not having kids, I'm going to come back, read this post, and count my blessings! :-)

Happy SITS day!

k a b l o o e y said...

Congrats on your SITS day! Your blog is terrific and I admit you had me at "chocolate and coffee" as far as signing on to be a follower. That said, the line took on gruesome metaphorical significance when I read the poopy post. Kind of a brown theme. But it was hysterical and very well captured. So glad I don't have to face those "do I just throw all these clothes out" decisions anymore, esp. when the answer was usually a guilty yes.

greedygrace said...

Friggin' hilarious! Yes, I know about the blow out all to well!

Happy SITS day!

Atlanta said...

Happy SITS Day! Sorry Im a little late. Im a bad blogger lately, family visits and all. Can I just say, that I really REALLY hope you dont have a poop player. And by that I mean a child who thinks its ok and normal to play in their poo. Doesnt seem to think its disgusting at all. I had one of these. And let me just tell you, take your horrific story and extend it to the walls and the carpet and the nose and EVERY. SINGLE. RAIL. on the crib. And not once, but nearly every day. It got so bad I would cry while scrubbing CRAP out of the carpet. I even BROKE our steam cleaner. I pray that your sweet Angel realizes that poo, SMELLs, well, like poo! =)

Ms. Mama said...

Ha...

That is so gross.

I can't remember if I ever had a day like that. BUT it sounds vaguely familiar.

shortmama said...

Oh girl I feel for ya. Been there, done that, got the tshirt...a few times!

Mama Mel said...

LOL! This is SOOO funny! :) Great descriptions! I especially like the visual of you throwing cups of clean water at your son! Ha ha! I have had some blow-outs with my son too, but I don't think any were that bad... Wow! Thanks for the laughs!

Transparent Mama said...

Sooooo funny. I have been there girl and feel your pain. I love that you threw cups of water on him from afar! Hope you'll come by for a visit.

Missy said...

I am on my 3rd child and I have never had a blow out quite like that, but I have had some nasty blow outs.

I have, however, had children that decide to take their diaper off and paint with what is inside. Fun times.

The 3rd child is using cloth diapers. I think they are MUCH better with containing and not quite the mass of blow outs.

Happy SITS day!

Little Miss Baker said...

oh my gosh!! this is so crazy and yucky and funny all at once!! I thought by blow out you meant getting your hair done haha I don't have kids. Can you tell?!

HollyS said...

Girl YES! I've had those days. And Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but you'll have them again :-) Thankfully, we've just celebrated one full year of being toilet trained. It think this is a much better celebration that birthday, don't you?

HollyS said...

I think everyone has a story like this, but yours takes the cake!

San said...

Hiya from SITS! I almost missed Wed's FB but I am sure glad I went back to check your blog out! U are hilarious! I have many *err* adventures with my boy and his poop too, but yours is by far more... widespread than mine has ever! :)

Kalei said...

that is AWESOME! Well, not really. My sisters girl was playing in Mcd's and a little boy "exploded" everywhere, she was screaming from the top middle of one of the tunnels. My sister had to go in and rescue her, the poop was all over her arm. All she could say was "mommy, ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww!" the poor boy was covered in it, there was one other child, but I think she became a full blown casualty of war. Poor child, she will never be the same again.

Yes, all of us mom's know a blow up....and why do all of them happen when the kid is with "mom"? hmmmmm, what are the dads feeding them? really, what?

Zeemaid said...

oh I have so been there only I was an aunty at the time and believe you me, I was NOT Prepared. *L*

Great blog, funny post. Happy belated SITS day!

oh my goodness!!! and you didn't take the time to snap a picture like a good mommy blogger?

Jessica said...

Sounds like you definitely need some coffee and chocolate after that one!!

Kristin said...

Ah ha ha ha. I'm so glad we all have those stories! One morning I came in to precious boy's room to see poo all over his sheet, all over the rails and all over his face. Nice.
