I still remember the day this happened, because it was the first time anything like this had ever happened. Lila and I were rushing one morning to eat breakfast and get ready to meet some friends at a nearby pool. I left her downstairs in her jammies so I could go upstairs and grab our swimming suits. When I came down, I found a sweet little girl who had unbuttoned her pjs, taken her diaper off and pooped all over the carpet. It was SOO gross. I remember standing there in shock wondering what to do.
I threw away the toy she was playing with and picked up the biggest pieces the best I could. I used soapy water to wash off the table and chairs, and then sprinkled baking soda all over the poop smears and walked away. Ha! We were late so I figured I’d deal with it when I got home, and I did. It’s happened multiple times since then, of course, and it’s just so gross. Thank goodness for annual complimentary carpet cleanings!
