Day 12- Poop Or Chocolate?

I'm fairly sure that every mom comes to a crossroad where she has to make a crucial judgement call- what is the true identity of that brown smudge? This choice is especially shocking when the said sample is on your child's body, most alarmingly the face. A simple sniff will usually clear up any questions, but this is usually the moment when moms wonder how they got to this point in their life.

I was faced with this guessing game not once, not twice, but three separate times today. I was unaware that there was going to be a guess-the-brown-smudge pop quiz so I didn't even study!

Incident One (8:30 am)
In a classic Mrs. Wright move I removed Boo's nighttime diaper but didn't immediately replace it. She's almost 2 and I'm surprised how long she can hold it before alerting me. Too bad we still haven't made it to the potty... Boo was playing for almost an hour when I spotted a brown mystery specimen on the couch. Further scent tests proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that this was a positive I.D. of poop. Luckily it was the 'pick up with toilet paper' kind instead of the 'burn the couch and buy a new one' kind.

Incident Two (11:15am)
I was finally getting little Boo dressed to shop for the dreaded event we have today when I noticed a large amount of unidentified brown goo in the mouth area. Since this morning's incident was still 'fresh' I immediately went in for a closer look. The trusty smell test made me smile, which is also known as a positive identification of Oreos. A quick wipe down was all that was needed.

Incident Three (1:00pm)
After shopping and having lunch I removed Boo's shoes for a stinky diaper change (no need to examine THAT specimen). An unidentified brown smudge covered the toe of her sock and looked pretty goopy. I immediately remember that I never found any more 'evidence' from incident one and am hoping that the case is closed on that one. The sniff test is especially unnerving when you don't really have a feeling either way, so you're going in blind. The test revealed nothing- no poop, but no chocolate. This specimen still remains unidentified, so I figured a baby wipe would suffice as a solution to either problem. Hopefully I'll have much less time in the sniff lab tomorrow.
