{Home} Messy Moments – The Mother Of All Messes

I love Sunday mornings: no agenda, just a relaxed time together. I usually like to start off with a nice warm cup of peppermint tea and make breakfast for the family.

Today was no such morning.

{SPOILER: I should warn you here that you may not want to read this post. There are lots of references to poop and even some gross pictures}. I had no idea when writing the post last week on Messy Moments ( and how I wanted to Bleach it away) that I’d be dealing with a serious disaster today and it kind of makes me laugh looking back. You have no idea how badly I wanted this mess to bleach away. So gross.

My morning started by changing a very massively poopy diaper. I guess the raisins did the trick. The Daiper Genie was full so I tried not to gag as I changed out the old diapers.

Then I walked upstairs.

Horror stuck.

I stood there for a good 30 seconds. I could not quite take in what I was seeing. You see, we got a puppy about 6 weeks ago and we keep her in the kitchen for minimum damage while going through the potty training process. It is normal for us to wake up to a small mess that requires cleaning up pooh and pee and then disinfecting the floor. But to my horror there was dog pee and pooh everywhere. Probably five poop locations and four pee locations. There were puppy foot prints covering the entire kitchen and my rug. The puppy had stepped in the pooh. Aggh. Knowing that I got to clean up all this fun mess did not motivate me a whole lot. (Jon is out of town for a rugby tournament in Portland.) He’s usually the one that cleans up 99% of the messes. It makes me miss him even more!

I placed the baby in the hair chair and I rushed the dogs outside to the backyard (it snowed the other night so it’s really cold to run outside with out a coat).

Then I came back to the mess. I started with a garbage bad, paper towels and Clorox bleach spray. I started cleaning up and scrubbing only to find that the puppy had pooped in front of the air vent so it was crusted on to the floor.

That’s when I saw the gate was open. We keep a gate on both entrances to the kitchen to cage in the dog.

There was pee in the hall in two places. Pee and pooh in the playroom on my favorite rug.

In the living room they had pulled the table cloth off the table and knocked over the candy bowl on to the floor and there were candy wrappers everywhere. (more pee that had gotten on the kids jackets).

In the office the older dog had taken a nice dump in my husbands closet.

The babies binkie was chewed to pieces.

After about 45 minutes of serious disinfecting I feel like it’s all under control again. Gross gross gross.

I am sure there are things I could have done to prevent this doom. Like double check the gate or keep the dogs in the crates. But I vote for keeping the dogs outside. Permanently. (Well, at least until Jon gets home).

Please vote for my messy moment, it will just take a moment.
