ok - so this really happened - I screamed like a banshee

For the last 4 days C has had insanely runny and dark poopoos. She has been going 4 to 5 times per day and like I have said before, I AM NOT PERFECT. And the constant poos annoyed me and I let my emotions slip out a few times while changing her. I did not yell, just exclaimed "Really C, another dark & gooey one. You really need to be toilet trained." I was half-joking and playful. Really, I was! Anyway, A overheard my complaints.

After an incredibly fun birthday party with the girls, we came home to relax out of the sun. I was pottering about in the kitchen when the girls came in holding hands. A asked me if they could go upstairs. I said it was fine as long as they "played" nice. Less than 5 minutes later A came down the stairs into the kitchen, and politely asked me to move over as she placed a nappy in the trash.

"What are you doing? Did the dolly go poo?" I asked.
"No Mommy. C did but I tidied it all up and put the poo in the toilet" I couldn't speak any words. I thought she was joking but after inspecting the nappy I was able to confirm that it was human poo not dolly poo.

Sprinting up the stairs, I reached Cristina who was "dirty", wearing a loosely fit nappy and hovering her head into the toilet, taking a look at her poo. It was a mess.

A thorough clean up and then a bath ... the girls are fine. My 2 year-old just changed her first nappy. I've asked her to not do that again and I'm going to stop complaining.
