Do you know what it means? I use this term generically b/c I don't know what else to call it. It is 3-6 times more likely to happen in boys, of which I have 4! How can I complain really, I have been blessed with boys who are excellent sleepers, great eaters, healthy & energetic, but at one point in their lives (I'm being generous, it has happened dozens of times it seems like) they have all done this. What you say? Well if you still haven't googled it, it means PLAYING IN POOP! What pray tell is the fascination? Not 1, but 3 times on Saturday I was cleaning up fecal messes caused by my children! Don't worry I didn't take pictures, it wouldn't have done the situation justice unless there was such a thing as scratch-n-sniff photos. It is terrible when one child does it, but even more terrible when two children are involved! Oh and Matt was skiing all the while I was sanitizing the kids and their toys and their bedding and their walls and the doors and their dresser and the floor vent and finally the kids and myself! Oh yah, Dawson & Declan have a thing with taking off the floor register covers and stashing things down them. Fortunately my search came up empty when I bravely checked. Until recently when people would make the comment DOUBLE TROUBLE when referring to my boys I would just smile or if I was having a particularly good day I would say "NO, DOUBLY BLESSED" back to them. I have to say the twins have been much harder the older they get. I know there will be a day, I'm hoping , when I will look back and laugh and wander where the years have gone. But for today I have to agree with the DOUBLE TROUBLE comments. Oh and yes if you are wandering I busted out the duck tape and have also started putting their diapers on backwards, just as I had to do with the older two!
