Those little mysteries that surround children

Can someone tell me how this happens?

IMG_2627 I mean, when you remove a full diaper thing, you have to pull the plastic down and tie off another.

When I, after taking a shower and getting all nice and clean, discovered this and then had to remove all the impacted poopy diapers by hand, I found that there wasn’t even a shred of a plastic bag at the bottom. So, someone (I’m not naming names, but it wasn’t me) had to have removed the last one and then just completely spazzed on pulling another one through.

And aren’t I the lucky one for finding it?

    Oh dear….oh goodness… this what it means to be a parent?? (shudder….)

    RE: It IS a special treat reserved generally for parents. Of course, I imagine that those caring for the elderly also get this sort of duty as well. Either way…YUCK!

  2. You are a good, good man for not just shutting that door and walking away for “someone” else to find the mother lode.

    RE: Well, considering the only other “someone else” around here is probably the one responsible in the first place, I wasn’t sure I had a choice. However, later, I tossed the whole episode into a conversation we were having, “Oh, by the way, next time we’re at Babies R Us, we need to get some more diaper pail liners, cuz I just had to manually remove an entire pail full because there was no liner.”
    I hope she got my veiled warning!

  3. Oh my, I don’t think I’d go near that, not even if it took a year for the person who actually left the bag out to clean up the mess. I would just leave it as it turned green and began to rot. Aren’t I such a grown up? Oh, yeah. There might even be a big squishy one found at the bottom of the bed, near where my loved one’s feet would touch as they dropped dead tired into bed that evening.

    My husband is so-o-o-o-o-o-o-o much kinder than I am. And that is why I nearly impaled myself with the long ended stem of a plunger when he didn’t put it away once, and I thought it would be smart to stand it upright in the middle of the toilet. Yep. I went to bed and tried to pee in the dark. He never saw it. I nearly had the kind of handle that could have helped you steer me as I walked on my hands into the ER.

    RE: You gotta pick your battles. Even the ones you THINK you’re gonna handily win, sometimes bring your downfall!!
    (Also, I fixed it…it’ll be out little secret)

    Hahaha! I’m not laughing at you, I’m laughing with you. I did my diaper tour of duty in the dark ages days, just after disposables were invented and before we had the little diaper disposal thingies, so it was out to the outside garbage after every diaper change. That got old real quick. But, at least they didn’t stack up like that. That’s pretty funny, well, not for you, I guess. That post just epitomizes life and marriage with young children. Loved it! Truth be told, I probably would have freaked out.

    RE: It IS pretty disgusting, but when you have kids ( you know!), you get used to doing things that only NewsGroup pervs talk about in hushed tones. There’s not much that grosses me out anymore, although getting puked on still gives me the heebie jeebies!
