Well yesterday was a day of losing it and than making a decision I am not sure I am completely happy with.
In the morning I was greeted by two little boys smelling like they had just been swimming in the sewer. Can we say diaper EXPLOSION!?! To deal with them I brought out the "last resort" aka the shower because no wipe was going to get that poop off!
Because of the amount of poop on them I knew there would be some in the room to clean up, but I left that for the moment and proceeded to get my daughter up. Only to be greeted by her sitting in the middle of a poop mess reading her book.... What is up with the poop thing this week!
And than there was round 2 of shower time.
After I finally got everyone settled, I headed to check out the damage in the boys room... Oh, yes there was poop, so I began to scrub and pile things to be washed. When I got to the second spot of poop on the carpet I looked up and noticed that there wasn't a couple of dirty spots, there were actually a couple of clean spots.
Now it's disgusting to clean up poop but after having done this for the last two years on a weekly basis, there is very little that phases me. The gross factor isn't the problem, it's the cleaning in general. So I made a decision...
Yes, I ripped out there carpet. Thinking back this may have not been the best decision but I have had enough of scrubbing poop out of carpet! And to avoid more hours of cleaning and having my kids room smell like a zoo, it had to be done. Now before you think I went completely crazy, the carpet was going to be ripped out but not until I had something to replace it.
The boys response to their naked floor, A: " I love my carpet! Why you take my carpet! I love my carpet!" and B: "You take my carpet and put it in the trash?! The floor is cold mommy. I like my carpet!"
They'll get over it and thankfully my husband didn't freak out! But now I need to come up with another flooring alternative that doesn't cost money.
