Aarrgghh Poo!

Ok I apologise but this has to be said. For my own sanity if nothing else.

I will issue a warning here, that if you don't like talking about bodily functions or if you are eating at the moment, please stop reading here. ;-)

My life at the moment is revolving around poo. 

There is Josh in nappies. That is fine, he has his one or two poos a day, no biggie. I can handle that. He comes up to me and says "Poop!" All good.

There is Angus. (All derogatory comments about a 3 almost 4 year old still in nappies will not be entered into ;) ). He has very valid reasons.... anyway. :-)  He can have up to 4 poos a day, and they are not pleasant. He is lactose intolerant and his digestive system is in a bit of a mess. We are getting it seen to and are on a waiting list to get on the waiting list for a specialist at hospital. (I love Queensland Health) . We did go to a Homeopath who pinpointed the exact problems and the foods that we need to avoid and things are a lot better but still not ideal. All I seem to do is change pooey nappies for these two boys. Sometimes up to 6 a day.

Now we have a new puppy and a new kitten, The kitten is a gorgeous, well behaved little girl. Who came to us fully toilet trained at around 8 weeks. The puppy on the other hand doesn't understand yet. He will poop everywhere. I take him outside but he seems to hold on until he gets back inside again. We will find little presents everywhere.  Then we have Jamaica, our gorgeous black and white 16 year old moggie.

So I have placed kitty litter trays at strategic positions around the house. One in the garage - this is Jamaicas'; there is one in puppy's bedroom; one near the back door; and one upstairs. These of course, all need constant cleaning.

So a BIG part of my day, is taken up with cleaning up poo. I am completely over it too, as you can imagine. I will be jumping for joy, quite literally, when these two boys are both toilet trained and this little poopy pup understands what he is supposed to do. It is really not very nice to be me at the moment. There is only so much poo that you can take in a day... really!



  1. Don't forget your own poos. You would be over it. Poos should be enjoyable to talk about and it's been taken away from you. I remember when my girls were little my husband and I would always ask about the poos whenever we got home. Texture, colour, smell etc. I hope your oldest boy gets sorted out soon. xx


  2. You have a toilet trained cat?? Oooh...we have two kittens, I need to figure out how to do this!
