Ah...the joys of motherhood.
In case you haven't had enough of my diaperless children, I thought I'd write another installment of Pants on the Ground. If you missed the first post about it, you can catch up with Elijah's antics HERE.
Last week, I walked into the kids' room to get them up from their morning rest time. They rarely sleep in the morning, but I've found that their morning rest time does wonders for their happiness level and Mommy's sanity.
This particular morning, I walked in to find this happy little girl perched between her diaper and a huge pile of poop:
The little bugger had pooped in her diaper, then took it off, then pulled salad-plate-sized turd out, then played with it, and then calmly waited for me to come find it.
Her sweet little antics resulted in a head to toe bath, complete bedding change, the entire crib wiped down with Clorox wipes, and a giant load of laundry washed on the hottest cycle available.
And since my kids love to do things as a group, Caleb wasn't too far behind (haha!) with his own craziness.
Over the weekend, Sean and I went in to get the kids up. I was looking at Ellie when we walked in because she was dancing around and giggling, and then all the sudden I heard Sean yelp. I always tell him about what kind of trouble the kids get into, so he knew bare butts were an occasional find, but I don't think he was ready to be accosted with this:
Caleb likes to sleep with the blanket over his head (so weird), but this day he had first removed his pants and diaper. We found them flung on the other side of the room. Apparently, this kid has an arm! The thing that made Sean yelp though, was the position he fell asleep in. He was angled to the door such that...eh, let's just say that nothing was left to the imagination.
With those episodes as inspiration, I've developed a new line of fashion accessories for my semi-nudists toddlers.
Behold, the Duct Tape Belts!
In less than thirty seconds, my kids can now take a nap, wake up fully clothed, and still be trendy. That's right, it's all about staying current and clean.
It's a really, REALLY good thing these kids are cute. And it's a really, REALLY good thing that "duct tape fixes everything"...at least until they figure out how to take that off!
(And no, I don't draw belts on their duct tape everyday. I just thought it would be a nice touch for the blog!)
Note: I want to explain a couple of precautions that I take with their duct tape belts. The duct tape is only wrapped around the front of the diaper to cover the tabs. It doesn't wrap all the way around the back of the diaper. I'm also very, very careful that the tape only touches the diaper and doesn't snag any of their skin. Kids have very sensitive skin, so if you choose to help your kids keep their diapers on this way, please be cautious that you don't put the tape directly on any skin. Thanks!
