So, I did it again. I ventured into the mysterious unknown with a set of 4 yr old twins and a 2 year old. I needed 40 fruit roll-ups for the kids' class. Some kind person had suggested COSTCO since it carries bulk and the prices are good. After my work-out I decided to be brave and head to COSTCO. Big mistake. But any of you with kids could have told me this already.

I had a few things working against me. 1) They were way hyper from running around like crazy people at the athletic club's child center 2) It was lunch time. Hungry and hyper children are never a good combo. 3) I had 3 children age 4 and under with me. Bad recipe, right? Well, they caused all kinds of usual havoc while we were there. That- I was ready for. What I was not ready for was to look down to find that my 2 year old had POOPED IN HIS SHOE! What? How does one go about pooping IN A SHOE?

Well, after 5 years of parenting, I've learning two things. 1) Put NOTHING past them. 2) Don't let your 2 year old wear boxers, no matter what kind of fit he throws. While running around tearing apart Costco, he had managed to have a bowel movement and it dropped out of his underwear, down his leg and INTO HIS SHOE! Ick! EEEEWWW! Gross! I have cleaned up MANY dirty diapers and underwear in my day but this one was a new one for me. It was disgusting.

I had to ask the sample lady to pass me some napkins while I announced, "Wow, you must have stepped in something!" No need to clue her in to this nastiness but I'm sure she could have smelled it; thankfully she was really old. The shoes are now running through the wash for the 2nd time and amazingly, there wasn't a spot on the underwear. My 2 yr old did take a long, hot bath when we got did I! Yuck!!!!
