What is it with the poop?!

So last night, we went out for a walk and when we got home our neighbor was outside. We stayed outside talking to her for a few minutes, during which time, the boy went into the garage and started playing with some of the car washing stuff that we have in there. Then he got suspiciously quiet and still.

My husband asked him what he was doing and he said he was "hiding" - which means he had to go poop. (still wears a diaper, although has ventured into the potty training arena some over the past week)

So, we're standing there talking to the neighbor and all of a sudden, my husband looks over at the boy and says, "HEY!!! Stop it!" and goes over to grab the boy's hands as he's smearing poop on the garage wall. What the?!

Never has the boy done this before. He just stuck his hands down the back of his pants and started playing with it.

Apparently he's picking some things up from the girl now, too. Disgusting!*

*He went around the rest of the night saying everything was "disgusting".

Hopefully you'll get the third poo incident out of the way before the road trip.

Yeah, they always come in 3's don't they?

Yick. We haven't had a "fecal smearing" (as the child development foks call it) incident yet. But I'm sure there's one in our future.

At least he wasn't eating it.
