on Thursdays Ayva goes to the creche in the afternoon. we usually try to squeeze a nap in after lunch before we take her. most times we end up having to wake her up and today was no different as Henri and i were in a bit of a rush to go to a funeral. :(
i went into her room and was hit by the biggest whiff of poo ever. i was just thinking, "great, we're in a hurry and now i have to change a poopy diaper."
and then i looked down on Ayva.
the first thing i saw was her bare bum...what?! and then i saw the poo. all over her legs. all over the head of her bear, Blue. on her blanket. alllll over the white sheet. her diaper was flung over the side of the crib to the floor and it was unscathed.
wow. i always knew i had something like this to look forward to, but never thought it would happen with Ayva. this is a girl who can not stand it if her hand has a speck of dirt on it. even if her hand is wet with water she brings it to me to wipe off - and now she's covered in POO?!
what else can i say - it was a fun parenting moment and not one i am likely to forget for quite some time. i don't think the aroma will fade from my memory too soon either. thank goodness i'm safely through my first trimester or i would not have been able to hold down my lunch!
