Summer is in full swing over here at Mama Nash.  Yet all I can seem to think about is poop.

You heard me.


After a busy weekend I finally have a moment to sit at the 'puter, check email, catch up on my favorite sites and write out a post.

I can't write about poop.  That's what I keep telling myself.

Yet it's consumed our life right now.

It's my blog and I'll write about poop if I want to.

So if you don't want to read about poop, go on and pass me by. Just this once.

It's my Lucy girl.  Stricken with some bug since Wednesday afternoon.  It's like she's Baby Alive.  Put it in her mouth and a few minutes later it comes out the other end in its exact same form.

I can think of no other minor illnesses that consumes your life the way the big D does.

Five outfits a day.

Our electricity bill will no doubt be nearly double with the washing machine and dryer constantly doing their thing.

We can't go anywhere because I'm afraid of an explosion going off at any minute.

She's constantly overtired because I can't keep up with changing her bed linens.

She's so particular and if she doesn't have her pig pillow she WILL. NOT. GO. TO. SLEEP.

Except the pig pillow has poop on it.  So in the washer AGAIN for 30 minutes and then the dryer AGAIN for a another 60.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner consist of the BRAT diet.  Minus the rice.  She picked that off her tongue and threw it across the room.  And truth be told, she's getting ready to do that with the rest of the items too because she's so sick of them.  I can't blame the girl.

She's happy; most of the time.  She's hydrated.  She's fever free.  So for those things, I'm thankful.

It's hot here.  Record highs.  Excessive heat warnings.  The whole bit.  Today we're even beating all my friends in AZ by a whole ten degrees.

I should be filling up the kiddie pool.  I should be walking to the ice cream shop.  I should be blowing up beach balls and slathering on sun screen.

But instead we're inside.  Dealing with a crappy situation.  Sorry, I just had to say it.


  1. Same here. Ugh. Time to go back to work, lol. Sounds like Lucy is teething? Maddie has been sick for 3 weeks. We got the first illness under control then a completely new one came on. 101-105 temp. And, she's been taking her diap off (poop) and throwing (poop) across the room. Grr.

  2. Aww Jen, I'm sorry. Hope it's better soon.

  3. That's just a dumpy situation! I just read something like 10 minutes ago that if your baby is peeing (or maybe pooping...?) the bed/crib to layer the mattress every other with a mattress pad and a fitted sheet, so all you have to do is take off a layer and you'll have another one ready to go. Does that sound right even? I don't know these things, so this could be the worst advice ever given! And you're right, we are having gorgeous weather down here...I heard about the heat/humidity fiasco in MN!

  4. It's about 83 degrees here today. Perfect.

    I hope Lucy feels better ASAP.

  5. I hope poor Lucy feels better soon! I had no idea that as a new parent I would be so concerned by poop!
