I'm feeling much better today, thankyouverymuch.
I awoke this morning to breakfast in bed. Josh brought me eggs and ham and coffee, and he got Naomi all up and dressed. I felt like a queen.
Then Naomi had the hugest, stinkiest, runniest, most voluminous poop I have ever seen. It soaked her pants and encrusted her favorite patent leather shoes, the ones that make her feel like Shirley Temple. I was expecting a poop like this because she was running a fever a few days ago and I suspected a minor virus. I just wasn't expecting it to be so BIG. Josh went back to bed while I cleaned Naomi, scraped and sprayed the carpet, and quarantined the offending diaper and the legion of wipes neccessary to make a dent in the mess.
While Naomi soaked in the bathtub and a heavily scented candle burned in the room where the noxious smell was released, I pondered what to do about the shoes. Can the shoes be saved? Can you put patent leather shoes through the dishwasher? In the microwave sterilizer? I wiped them down with disinfectant but I can sense the stubborn poop still lurking in the seams. I can't put those shoes back on her. Maybe if I left them in direct sunlight for a few days?
