The shock factor

At this point we feel pretty comfortable with the variety of semi shocking events that happen in our house on a daily basis.  There is the tiny shock, medium shock and ultra shock. 

Tiny shocks are the little bits of baby scattered around the house in random places.  You open the door to the fridge and get shocked by an alligator squeeze toy looking back at you.  Or the drum sticks falling from the shelf to your feet.


Medium shocks are usually food or liquid involved.  Like walking in to the living room to find Joey and Phoebe enjoying a nice spritzer courtesy of Joey's bottle being dumped on both their heads.  He actually now dumps his bottle on everything.  Phoebe is usually the target but we've also moved on to couch cushions, table tops, clothes, pillows, etc.  Everything gets water dumped on it. 

Or when you find glitter on your food...cause daycare babies ALWAYS have glitter stuck to them.



The ultra shock comes when you least expect it.  And you can imagine what that usually involves.  Poop.  I know what you're thinking, and while yes, the explosion is an ultra shock, it is not MY most shocking baby issue.  Lately my ultra shock is not only literally shocking but also mind bending. 

The in-the-sleep-poop.

How does that even happen!!!?  How does the kid manage to poop in his sleep!?  It shocks the hell out of me every time and then I just stare at him with this semi look of disgust and utter amazement.  How did this person manage to squeeze out a poop mid sleep?  And why is it always the sleep poop that doesn't smell so it scares the crap out of me when I think I am just changing a piss filled diaper!?

Why does this happen and why has this become an all too present shock in our lives.

I hate the in the sleep poop.
