So we started the Bowel program yesterday. Well this mornings diaper was the most disgusting diaper I have ever changed in my life! Uh, why didn't you guys that have been thru this warn me? So here is what happens...

Delaney, the 6 week old wakes up crying so I go up to our bed (I came downstairs with hubby to see him off to work) as I am on my way up to get her, I hear Gabrielle, the 2 year old crying (the one on the bowel program). So I go in to get her out of her crib and she says "I'm poopie". There is poop all over the crib sheet. So I lay baby down (who is still crying but I had no choice) and take Gabrielle to the bathroom to change her diaper. Needless to say it was one of those moments of where to even attempt to start to clean her up. I wipe her off as best I can. Go and get a trash bag for the diaper and wipes. Then put her in the bathtub. In the meanwhile I run to get a washcloth and towel (baby is till crying at the top of her lungs) Gabrielle poops in the tub. Finally get her washed, dressed, catheter done. Baby and kids fed too....

I need some

We've been there- those days where things are down the toilet right from the beginning.
Warning- it may get worse before it gets better. And I mean WORSE.

To my husband I am wife, to my kids I am mother, but for myself I am just me.

mmmm, so lovely to have that greeting first thing in the morning.

Every time Rebekah has a diaper like that, I just remind myself that it really is better than the days and days and days of crying and refusing to eat with constipation.

I never got breakfast and lunch didn't happen till almost 3pm. By then I had such a horrible headache I thought it was a migraine.

I ended up doing 3 loads of laundry and had countless poopie diapers to change.

Please let today be better...

We've had some days like that. If you don't laugh you'll cry.

I hope it was better. ?
