Yesterday, I was going to write a post about how one of my children came to me with something that should never have had poop on it, and told me that I would need to clean said item because it did, in fact, have poop on it.
And I said (foolishly), “HOW DID THIS GET POOP ON IT!!!???” And the child responded, “I don’t know.”
In my intended post, I would’ve asked you all, as I asked this child, “How can you get poop on something without knowing how it happened?” I mean, even if the answer is, “I was rendered unconscious and I lost control of my bodily functions,” that’s still an answer. Right?
As I thought it all through, though, I realized just exactly how foolish a question I had asked. Is there any answer my child (notice how studiously I’ve avoided saying who it was?) could’ve given that would’ve made the whole situation more acceptable to me?
I couldn’t think of one.
