It's True. Believe me.

This is a yucky post. If you are not a parent, you will be appalled that I am about to have a whole post dedicated to the following topic. Before I had kids, I thought parents of little kids were demented. If you are a parent, you will *get it*.

Kids bowel movements are just crazy. They aren't like adults. ANYTHING they eat affects their poopies and just makes them crazy/horrifying.

Seth had a *present* for me that was unlike anything I have ever seen. The color was indescribable. I knew that nobody would believe me if I simply told them the color, so I thought I would show it. Don't worry. I know what you are thinking!

I am a graphic designer as well as a parent, so I have something called a Pantone Book, which is a book of colors (kind of like the paint chips you buy at Lowes). So, I took out my handy Pantone book and found the EXACT color of Seth's poop. Yes, I know. I am a tad *odd* at times.

So, here it is... I have named it "BM Green". The really sad thing is that I can't think of anything that would have made his poop this particular shade.

And for those of you who really want to see it, I DID take a photo! I just couldn't resist! Just email me. And if you are interested enough to see a photo of somebody elses child's poop, then you are worse than me!

Now all you non-parents, let's hear a collective

And then, when maybe you are a parent one day, and you pick up your kid to smell their butt, or change a bright green or blue (yes, they happen too!) poopie, then think of me!

I'm blind.

Please, please do NOT send me that photo.

I'll be there with you soon enough, so now I'm going to go take a relaxing bath and cherish the last of my child-free days. ;-)

Ok you DIDNT take a picture of it. You just didn't. Did you?

EUUUUUWWWWWWWW! From one MOMMY to another! And I want to know if you get any emails to see it! HEEHEE

Seriously. Please tell me that the part about taking a picture of it was a joke. Even though I don't have kids, no amount of having kids is going to make that sound sane to me.

Oh, you KNOW you want to see it, Tony. It's like a car crash. You wish it had never happened, and you hope everyone will be okay, but you still have to look as you pass by!

As Robert Frost said, two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one where I didn't have to color-match human feces.

I can tell you exactly what made it turn food coloring.

Don't ask me why I know this...

LOL - You are Correct my uberSmart friend! I had forgotten about the black food coloring! That was it!

Does your knowledge come from experience? :)
