Ok, I have mentioned it before - that we are potty training here. It's been weeks now, but we are seeing some progress every day. In fact, today Gabe did it all by himself several times (including putting his shorts back on and washing his hands) - which has me thrilled.
However - with some good - comes some bad, or some stinky.
Gabe has not mastered #2 in the toilet. In fact - for some reason I think it scares him. Anyway, he was outside running through the sprinklers this afternoon and I look out at our swingset area. He has his pants down. I yell out to him asking what he's doing. He says, "I'm giving my pooh to the bugs". Huh? I make my way out there, and a pretty nasty smell assaults me as I get closer. Then I notice pooh - everywhere from his waist to his toes. He had an accident, and then was trying to get rid of the evidence I guess. But it only got on him.
So after peeling off his swimming trunks - which were filled with the sticky crud (literally) we were scrubbing him down for what felt like forever. And now, over an hour later - the clothes are being washed, the tub has been scrubbed clean, I have a candle going, my Scentsy warmer going - I've sprayed Oust air-sanitizer - but I still smell pooh! And the scary thing is - I AM THE ONE THAT SMELLS LIKE IT! YUCK! I have scrubbed my hands with several different types of soap, put on hand sanitizer - the works - but the smell is still there.
So if any of you have any fantastic remedies for getting rid of the smells that potty training leaves behind - please indulge this stinky mommy.
