from those whose walk is blameless."

Our Morning at the Mall

I took Hutton to the mall this morning just to get us out of the house. It's too cold to play outside so sometimes we'll go to the indoor play area at the mall to let Hutton run some energy out. Today he wasn't particularly interested in the play area. Instead, he saw the cars/vehicles that you put change in and the go back and forth. I think he tried out all of them, but Bob the Builder's bulldozer was his favorite because the theme song played over and over again. He was really fascinated by the life size Bob. When we were leaving, he said, "Bye Bye Bob." Oh my sweet little boy!

A tub full of poop!

Well my day started off strong! I gave Hutton a bowl of oatmeal this morning. He's doing a lot better using a spoon all by himself. Still messy but learning how to control it better. However, today he gave up the spoon and started using his hands. Needless to say he had oatmeal EVERYWHERE! So naturally, after he was finished, I put him in the tub! He loves taking baths so this was a no brainer. I stepped out for two seconds to grab a towel from my room and what do I come back to? Yes. A tub full of poop! I wasn't sure of the protocol in this situation because it had never happened like this before. It wasn't just a small bit...but a lot! So I pulled him out of the tub and started draining the water. As I'm doing so my sweet boy runs through the house naked and soaking wet. So I grabbed the clorox and my toddler and shut us in the bathroom. As I am cleaning the tub, Hutton continues to pee three different times all over the bathroom floor! GEE!! I needed help so bad this morning! Wish I could have had another set of hands! What's funny is that even though my initial OCD tendency would be to get upset, but laughed myself through the whole thing!

Note to self: Make sure your toddler has done his morning poop before bathing.
