Yesterday's bath started like most others. I filled the bath, threw in a few of Jack's toys, got Jack undressed and plunked him in the tub. I turned away for a moment or two, listening to Jack play in the tub.
"Uh, Mommy?" Jack called to get my attention.
"Yeah?" I called back.
"What is this thing?"
I walked closer to the tub to see what Jack was talking about. He pointed at a brownish item floating in the tub. It wasn't much bigger than a kidney bean.
"What is that?" I inspected it a bit closer. "Is that...poop???"
"I didn't do it. It's not my poop." Jack said a bit too quickly.
"Well then, where did it come from?"
Jack looked up at me innocently and said, "I don't know. Isn't that weird? Poop that came from nowhere???"
I scooped the poop out of the tub and it wasn't moments later when Jack announced that he needed to go potty. Upon closer inspection of the resulting content, it's pretty safe to say there wasn't any question where the "floater" came from.
