Those of you with children (I’m assuming most people reading fall into this category) know about the infamous “shit up the back” phenomenon. Your kid has a blowout of such proportions that it not only fills the diaper beyond capacity, it also shoots up the poor kid’s back and sometimes even reaches their head. What you’re about to read involves a very.shitty.situation. If you’re at all disgusted by poop stores, please click away.

With our first born, we were shocked by our first SUTB situation. We cleaned our son, his changing table and soaked his clothing in hopes of saving the garment. For the record, shit DOES NOT come out of clothing, at least not in my experience. With our second born, we knew what to expect. We are rarely surprised when faced with SUTB and are experienced in the wipe and toss. We no longer try to save the shit-stained clothing and it goes straight in the trash.

Shortly after Elliot was born, I was home alone with BOTH children for the first time. Being alone with two kids frightened me (I know, I’m a wuss) so I was already on edge but I had no idea just what was in store for me. The three of us were playing in Graham’s room and I was sitting in a chair with Elliot. I had my knees up and she was sitting in the crook of my legs when I heard a movement.Β  A machine gun fart with the A-Bomb finale. And then there was warmth, oh so much warmth. Elliot had completely missed her diaper and crapped straight DOWN MY SHORTS. Yes, straight down my shorts. I was now alone with two children, one of which was covered in mustard yellow poop and I had poop in my crotch. Needless to say I freaked the fuck out. I grabbed a shirt out of Graham’s drawer and wiped as much shit off of me as I could then got Elliot cleaned up. Shortly after the blowout, I put her down for a nap, put on Blues Clues for Graham and took a shower to scour my skin.

We’ve had a few blowouts since then but none so bad until tonight. Elliot and I were chilling at my computer desk playing a game of “Mommy’s gonna eat your foot!” and laughing like crazy. I heard a little movement but I thought it was just air. We continued our game but a few minutes later, I smelled a foul odor. I pulled Elliot’s diaper open to peek in and there it was, mustard poop. When I let go, it snapped back and SHIT SPLASHED IN MY EYE. IN MY EYE!!! I yelled for Jamie to take Elliot and I ran to the bathroom to clean up. It turns out that liquid crap splashed up my nose and embedded itself in my eyelashes. As I type this, it’s four hours later and I can STILL FEEL SHIT IN MY EYE. I know that it’s probably all gone but I have phantom iPoop.


Jamie snapped this photo shortly before the incident. I’m pretty sure Elliot’s entire foot was in my mouth at that point. Yes, I’m rocking my fish boxers. No, I don’t put actual pants on most days. I work very hard to maintain my haggard mother appearance.Β  The messy desk adds to that appearance.

    Oh.I.am.SO.sorry! I’m laughing just a little because it amazes me that we can talk about this stuff, survive this stuff, and still love them. Seriously, is your eye ok now? It seems like that might be potentially-medically-hazardous? Hope both of you are better today. And I love the haggard mom look, it’s all the rage around here πŸ˜‰

    I don’t have children but I’m still very experienced with these situations. When my nephew was a week old, he threw up, peed, and pooped on me, all within a matter of 10 minutes. But I didn’t get in my eye… I can’t imagine how long it takes before the phantom iPoop goes away!!!

    Bwahahaha! Sorry, I HAVE to laugh! Last night, I was checking Sprite’s diaper and her poop KNOCKED when I pushed in on her tushy. I found myself wishing for the softer pre-toddler days. Your post reminded me not to look a gift poop in the eye.

    hahaha I can so relate. I have four daughters and yeah, been there done that…many times.

    OMG–yuck! Yes, I remember that happening and I am thrilled to not EVER have to deal with that again! Luckily, those situations didn’t occur very often, but why does it seem like when they did, we were always out somewhere & it was extremely difficult to clean up? And for the record, I just threw poop clothes away. I wasn’t even going to attempt to save the outfit!

    Can you use Germ-X on your eye? LOL Probably not if you’d like to keep your vision, eh?

    Wow. Best story I’ve heard in a long time. I have tears from laughing so hard. When I brought my son home from the hospital he was a geyser of poop, every time we changed his diaper. I mean he could shoot poo for a good four feet through the air – on his stuffed animals, on the curtains, on the wall….

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. oh, if we threw away every outfit that was shit on, my kids would be nekkid. try oxyclean, works for us πŸ™‚

    Lady – I have been where you were. I hate those days but they are the best stories to use as embarassment later!

  10. mrsbear

    Oh. My. God. Poop in your eye definitely beats out my crappy finger dip the other day. I’m still reeling from the reality that you got poop in you EYE. Your open eye? Really, there’s got to be a potential for infection there.

    Phantom poop in the eye! Phantom Poop sounds like an awesome villain in a children’s cartoon or something. I must say, that with child #1 I never experienced any blowouts. He was always a kind and courteous pooper. But with child #2, not so much luck. She knows how to cook ’em and make ’em messy!

    I think we’ve all had some pretty shitty days….ha ha! No pun intended! Hay, at least you have a nice pedicure! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the encouragement to write for the Spin Cycle. I hope I have a story to tell for the next one. As for work…it’s going well. I LOVE getting out of the house. However, yesterday I was on for 8 hours! Way too long to be out of the house, but at least the long hours are only on the weekend. Oh, and I told them I had to have one day on the weekend off. I don’t want to be slaving away both days! Take care of yourself. Here’s mud…er, I mean shit in your eye! πŸ™‚ I need to get some blogging done tonight. Talk to you later….

    I can’t tell you how many of these incidents I have had with four children but never in my eye! How is your eye? Totally Toddler gets out crap stains. I can only seem to find it at Babies R Us.

    LMAO!! Oh my god, that is so gross! I have been there (even got it in my hair once) but never in my eye. I actually haven’t had to deal with a SUTB episode in a long time, and for that I am grateful πŸ™‚

    Oh, that really sucks!! My DD peed on me 3 times this weekend, but I’ll take that any day to those awful diapers we’ve definitely had our share! YUCK!

    You crack me up, I need to add you to my favs list.

    Yuck!!! I’ve dealt with many SUTB diapers, but thankfully never had to iPoop! I’d probably STILL feel the phantom poop and it’s been awhile since I’ve had a new born in the house!
