Friday Fun

Remember Henry, well if you don't this is him nursing his baby.
Henry lives with us, as do his parents and brothers.
Here is one of Henry's brothers. His name is William. I was going to actually post a recipe today. The recipe I used for William's blessing day. Teriyaki Chicken if anyone cares, however as I was posting and Taylor (P.J., Henry and William's mom) was nursing. I heard Taylor scream "Mom, Henry has pooped his pants somewhere and is now standing here naked." Yes he was naked except for the poo he had smeared all over his hands and legs not to mention what his bum looked like.
After I had cleaned Henry up. Taylor and I played a quick game of Poo Poo Go Find the Poo.
What hadn't stayed stuck in his crack he kindly left in the laundry room.
Now my whole house must be bleached and I feel it wouldn't do my Teriyaki Chicken recipe justice to post it after all this poo talk.
I find it amazing that Henry has the ability to nurse his baby, but still craps his pants. Oh well.
I thought since as usual I was on the topic of grandchildren I would also share a fun game you can play with them while baby sitting.
This game keeps them quiet for hours.
First, as you can see you simply pull their shirt up over their head.

Also you will note that they may struggle for a moment or two, thirty max.



Then out of sheer exhaustion the victim err grandchild will then give up and sit there quietly, well sure there might be some muffled crying noises but just ignore them and go about your business.
Check to see if they are still breathing every so often. I mean you want to keep the game fun and all.
There you go another great tip from Nana. Enjoy!
I have to go commence on the bleaching process now. Have a great weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, I can't wait for lots of poopy stories when I have children.

Jane In The Jungle said...

LOL, luckily for me I've never had a"poo-er" but cross your fingers since the girl refuses to be potty trained!!

Jolene said...

Oh Nana, you always make me laugh. I'll be sure to tell my mom about the babysitting game for the next time she watches my kids.

p.s. That picture of Henry nursing his baby is too cute.

How funny! What would Tay do without you? She better count her blessings that she is living with you for now, once she moves it will all be different. Poor you and poor Taylor for the future!

Amanda said...

Yikes, sounds like fun. I had a baby I used to nurse to, after my little sister was born.

Sera said...

Haha...poor Zeke. Glad the poop is at your house and not mine. Love all of your guys and miss you!

Bleach might not do it, you may have to move.

Sparcam said...

It's always nice to know there are other "poopy strippers" out there! Welcome back...and good call on holding off on the recipe!

Deanna said...

Oh dear! My grandkids haven't pulled that one on me yet. And all but one of them are too old for that nonsense, so maybe - just maybe - I won't have to deal with that! Yuck!

I've added the game to my list of grandkids fun ;)

Shauna said...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! ♥ HUGS ♥

Midwest Mommy said...

Ugh, poop is the worse. BG blessing me with puke and poop all over my house was NOT fun! I am still trying to disinfect our house.

The Garden of Egan said...

That is sooo funny! I love this post. Grandkids, they are the best! I wish a couple of mine would play the game and sit quietly until rescued from the attack shirt.

Connie said...

Thanks for the game idea. I'll try that today! I remember as a teenager thinking that I could NEVER deal with bodily functions from a child, but after 8 kids of my own and 9 grandchildren, it's amazing what I can deal with now! Still don't like it, but I can deal with it!

Can't wait for your teriyaki chicken recipe - sans the poop, of course!

Grand Pooba said...

Seriously? That is the funniest thing I have EVER seen! He's nursing his baby? Oh my gosh I can't stop laughing!!

Kathy B! said...

EW! Good thing they're so stinkin' cute or you might have to pull their shirts over their heads AND pull their pants around their ankles... just for fun ;)

wendy said...

That is so funny - I can just picture that whole scene. So GROSS. I would have broke out into the dry heaves ---I like that game though. WILL TRY IT ON NEXT BABYSITTING stint and report back. (must I really check to see if they are still breathing??--j/k)

nikkicrumpet said...

BLECK!!! Kids are way worse than dogs! I swear if my kids ever want to move in with me....I'm going to read this post about 10 times in a row and then say HECK NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

After I got up off the floor and reread your post...got up again...I KNEW for sure I do not want to baby sit any more and am actually GLAD I am old and decrepit..and that I'm glad the grand kids and the kids don't trust me to baby sit anymore and leave it up to the grandparents. Being a great grandma..is...neat. And NO they can't come live with me. (only in a very extreme emergency and I do mean EXTREME!)
Your post was hysterical!!

I know I commented before, but I had to let you know that I checked your blog again today and started laughing all over!!!!!!!!!!!! Couldn't help myself over this post, you are sooo funny!

KelleyAnne said...

Nothing like a little poop excitement! Love the nursing picture...so cute.

Lisa Loo said...

He is a busy boy!! Nursing and pooping takes alot out of a guy.

I know I say this over and over--but I'm available for adoption. Even if I have to play the attack of the shirt game.

Tranquility said...

I don't even have words... I'm too busy laughing and trying to type through the tears!

Oz Girl said...

Oh, I was laughing out loud, so many good stories in this post. I wish I woulda had that t-shirt trick when I was a young mom. :) I'll remember that when my son & his wife have their first child.
