a three year old and poop

Kenji in the shower
My toddler should be potty trained by now…. I know! But he does go in the toilet when I spend the day taking him and constantly asking, if he needs to go. But I’m pregnant & tired, with the little sleep I got last night, after breakfast I decided to take a nap while he played in the living room. Mistake number ONE!
I don’t know if I could have saved myself an hour of cleaning poop off the floor and his butt, but I’d like to think that if I was awake, the situation would have not escalated the way it did.
He is now immersed in a head to toe bubble bath, which smells exquisite, unlike his lovely poop.
And finding myself in this situation reminds me of all the other poop I’ve had to deal with in the last three years and it’s not pretty. I cringe at the thought that for another three years I will be dealing with these same exact scenarios of explosive diarrhea, poop leaking through a diaper and to the car seat, or picking up your peaceful baby to find yourself with poop all over your hands and on your clothes.
There is no escaping poop, because poop happens every day! You get lucky sometimes with a day free of poop, but be weary of the next day as it might just be worse!!
