As I said goodbye to our friends an hour or so ago, I casually mentioned that I was going to go home, make a nice cuppa and sit down for half an hour. Did I…
A. Go home, make a nice cuppa and sit down for half an hour
B. Go home, watch Ma Puce (The Artist Formerly Known As The Tinkerous Toddler) lovingly tend to her dolly who had “done a poo poo”. Then realise that the smell of poo poo was a little too realistic. Check Ma Puce’s pants and discover a horrid, stinking mess of poop sandwiched between her bottom and the pants, with bits having escaped onto her dress and the floor where she was sitting? Take Ma Puce into the bathroom to clean her up, realise there was so much poop the best thing to do was hose her down and give her a bath. Give the carpet a clean with carpet shampoo. Go downstairs and find another splat of escaped poop on the bottom stair and clean that carpet. Throw the knickers and 10+ poop covered wet wipes in the bin. Put a load of washing on, so the dress didn’t sit festering in poo for too long. Get the vacuum out to clean up the remains of the carpet shampoo. Get Ma Puce dried and dressed. Stick her in front of CBeebies for half an hour and then, finally, sit, no wait, fall down into a chair and clutch at my nice cuppa
