Aunt Kellah Must Have Extra Soft Carpet.

Remember this post? The post where I asked what was worse, cleaning up after animals or cleaning up after kids? Well after this weekend I think I am in a better position to determine the winner.

I babysat my sweet nephew Logan from Friday to Saturday. I LOVE babysitting this boy, he is just so sweet and will say the funniest things! My baby sis drove Logan to my pad and slept over too. If that isn't proof enough that I am her favorite sister, I don't know what is. I don't see her going to sleep over at Lindee's house, well at least voluntarily.

Because it was Friday the 13th, I thought it'd be great fun to watch a scary movie so that Alyse could have some sweet nightmares. So we did, we watched Kung Fu Panda. Very scary I know. I don't know about Alyse but I had nightmares of fat Pandas threatening to hug me to death! I'm still a little shaken.

So Saturday was very chill, just hangin out coloring and tryin to keep Logan from pulling the kitties' hair out. After Logan decorated my chairs, table and his clothes with green marker, I put him and Leeser down for a nap.

After about an hour or so I hear giggling coming from the hall. I walk around the corner and there's Logan with a huge smile on his face and no pants on his butt. You know I can't post about Logan without his pants off, so no surprise there. For example:



So he says to me:

"My poop"

So I ask him if he needs to go potty and he says,

"No I lost my poop"

He runs into the get ready room and I of course follow just knowing what he's going to do. I look behind his crib and there it is, a nice runny pile of kid poop on my carpet!

"Logan! We do not poop on the carpet!" He wanders into my bedroom and says,

"I found poop!"

And there it is, a well formed terd on my bedroom floor. Nice. Looks like he started in the bedroom and finished up in the get ready room. But how can you get mad at the boy when he says,

"I clean Kellah!" (That's how he pronounces my name, so funny!)

He offered to clean up his own poop. Awe that sweet kid, his mom taught him to be so polite!



So of course we go into the bathroom and clean up his butt and luckily I have some carpet cleaner so Logan and I cleaned up his poopy mess together.

By the way, where is Alyse during all this? Sitting on the couch continuing to watch TV. It's okay, she's the baby in the family. She's never had to lift a finger. Love you Leese!

So who is messier, pets or kids? I now know from experience that there is no difference. Dogs poop on the carpet, kids poop on the carpet. Dogs leave dirty paw prints on the floor, kids leave dirty paw prints on the windows. Dogs drool all over the couch, kids drool all over my pillow.

It's a tie.

CLUFF FAMILY said...

ohh.. toddler poop is the best! At least he goes in the toilet. I am still changin Jord and Tay! THAT is a lot of poop smellin fun!

Call Me Cate said...

At least he knew where he lost it! I'm always losing things (like remotes, socks, cats) and I never know where I left them.

Rebecca Jo said...

Maybe a half point goes to the kids side since he DID offer to help - especially in a cute voice... my dogs just look at me like "when are you going to clean that up?"

Karin Katherine said...

you are the best Aunt EVER!

Amanda Hopper said...

LOL! You are one Super Aunt. Maybe I'm not ready for babies afterall! You are right though.....he is too cute to get mad at.

Suzi said...

Maybe they need to have an "Aunt of the Year" award. I'd nominate you.

blueviolet said...

You're a poop magnet. ;)

LadyStyx said...

Definitely a tie!

Mindy, Tyler, and Kids said...

Yeah, it's a close tie. Although, I love my kids more than I love my dog now. She used to be my baby but my kiddos are more fun and more of a pain at the same time. :)

Blogalicious Designs said...

LOL... that's pretty funny!

Yaya said...

Haha! Again w/ the no pants! Hilarious! And with an orange shirt on, priceless!

Why is that human poop on the carpet grosses me out way more than animal poop??

Julia said...

Eeeeekkkk! I am so glad my kids go in the toilet now. We went through a spell when Ella was pooping outside every day but I finally cured her. She would just come and tell me where it was after the fact....Aren't they kind?

dani said...

and again, that's why I have no kids AND no pets!

nikkicrumpet said...

LOL...but dogs can't clean up their own poop...and they don't even offer to help!

adlibby said...

LOL! That was too much! I have "lost my shit" before... but under entirely different circumstances. Too funny!

And for the record, two kids, two dogs... so far, both kids have vomitted down my shirt at least half a dozen times, and once in my mouth... the dogs NEVER do that!!!

Lee said...

I can deal with poop in diapers. But if it's anywhere else, my gag reflex kicks in.

The Wife O Riley said...

Dog's don't offer to help...but neither do my kids for that matter.

angie said...

Awww, there's no way you could be mad at the little cutie!

Nana said...

Well let's see though, kids don't usually eat poop or shed.

I can't however, tell my kids to go lay on their beds and they jump right up and do it.

I think it's a tie, maybe.

Annie Harper said...

Oy.

It's all I have to say.

Cept for this: REALLY? You really can't go to Shut Up and Dance? Me so sad.

Synergy Girl said...

Hrmmmmm....I don't think I would want endless kisses from the mouth of my 140 pound Mastiff....he would envelop my entire face...

Poop on the floor is bad news. Kid poop trumps dog poop hands down. I have no rationlaization for this. It just does.

I give you a big shiny gold star for that. You desrve it!

Ben and Ash said...

Laughing, laughing, laughing...it is so funny when someone else has to clean up poop. Not so funny when it's me. And for the record, it is usually me. Kai poops anywhere BUT the toilette, so I clean up a lot of poop.

Each and everyday, my son has some claim related to poop in order to get out of his nap. It can be my undoing.

I would also like to say that my kids are available anytime you might feel the need to babysit again. (I do these things for you.)

Melissa said...

I love watching my neice and nephews but if they poop on my floor!! So help me!!

Rhea said...

I have two kids and a dog...and the two kids win. If I had one kid and one dog...it'd be a tie.

Cute kid, willing to clean up his own poo! I love it.

Megan said...

Well I guess the good thing is that he actually TOLD you that he'd pooped on the carpet instead of you wandering around wondering where the smell was coming from. LOL Silly boy!!

KAL071203 said...

that's too funny! so now you know it's a tie are you ready to make the leap into parenthood?

Michelle said...

Blech!! You win for the most awful experience! I pray I never have to experience such a thing but knowing my kid, I probably will!! Thanks for the laugh though, it's much appreciated!

heathersister said...

Yup, it's a tie. I have cleaned both dog poop and kid poop off the floor too. And vomit of both sorts for that matter.

At least he found his poop after he lost it and showed it to you and you didn't find it a week later. A dog would not tell you he lost his poop and would not care if he found it or not.

ChicagoLady said...

Logan's mom taught him to be polite, but who was teaching him to poop on the carpet? That's what I'd want to know! LOL

My little Logy makes his 'Crapa' proud!

Cody said...

Awwwww... That's so cute and sweet. It's totally awesome that you have a lot of patience for kids, and Logan is so cool that he offers to clean up his own poop. When I first experienced that with my baby cousin, I didn't know what to do since it totally stained my carpet, that's why I called for a carpet cleaning (Orange County, CA) services to have it professionally cleaned.

In my home at Orange County, carpet cleaners are pretty abundant, so I really have no issues regarding their services.
