Now, I'm not sure how most of you are planning on spending your summer vacation. But, I have begun mine on the poop deck...and I'm not talking of the nautical sort.
This morning, I popped Sofia in the bathtub to get cleaned up and ready for the day. We played, splashed and sang the clean-up song when it was time to put the toys away and get out of the tub. I wrapped her up in a big towel, tustled her hair and turned around to shut the shower curtain. I heard a little squeak and spun around to see that Sofia had "dropped a deuce", if you will, right on the bathroom floor! Ew! She had this complete look of confusion on her face about what had just happened. I comforted her, cleaned her back up and then went to work on cleaning up the floor.
Once she was done, we got dressed and headed out of the bedroom to gather our things and head out the door. We both stopped dead in our tracks. Over in the corner by the stairs, Layla had left several "presents". I couldn't believe it! First of all, she hasn't done something like that in years and secondly...A SECOND POOP I HAD TO CLEAN UP!
So, down the stairs I went to get the carpet cleaner...and...brace yourselves...there's more...the dog had puked at the bottom of the stairs! I was in utter disbelief and by this point, I was pretty grossed out -- and that is HARD to do. Luckily, all my cleaning adventures were pretty easy to take care of. Let's just say I will be taking a break from cleaning duties for a while.
...Now, off to imagine a day on a real boat!
