Poo!

Today is my 100th post day! So very fitting that i am blogging about one of my favorite subjects!

I mentioned poo yesterday. I could fill many a post with stories of poo. But don’t worry I wont!
C used to smear up to 5 times a day, this has only got less in the last few years. Its just something you deal with. One of my favourite professionals who used to come and see me was an incontinence advisor, as she and I could have great poo conversations! (does that make me sad? Or is it just because no one else wants to talk about it after their child is potty trained!) In Japan they worship poo! There are many reasons why some people like to smear (its not just an autistic thing) and am still to this day not sure why C does it. Its just part of him. I should put it to good use really being the green mum that i am!
And the next time you sit doen to enjoy a cup of coffee, this about this!!!



Here is a poem I wrote a few years ago.

Poo here, Poo there
Poo on the walls, poo in his hair.


It’s in his ears, eyelids too,
Between his toes-dried on poo.

Poo on his face,
poo on the floor

Poo everywhere there can’t be any more!
It’s all over the bed,
All over the chair,
The smell of poo lingers in the air.

Behind the radiator, inside books,
At the ceiling I dare not look.

The most poo you have ever seen,
But at least the toilet I do not have to clean!!!

i know no one will find it easy coping with smearing but i struggled changing my sons pooey nappies, so what i would be like if i had to cope with smearing i dont know.

Casdok said...

We just progressed from nappies to the walls and celings!

Cake great idea! And bring the champagne!

toady said...

Well done on 100. Cake and champagne sounds like a good idea.

I have three in diapers...can understand about the poo. P. occasionally smears -used to be an every day thing but now more often than not he comes to tell me he's dirty- only problem now is when its night time-glad he likes taking a bath!

Wooo Hoooo on 100 posts..... Ive only been blobbing since Feb this year, but I dont blob everyday, not cos I dont want to, just cos I aint got the time lol....

I can do kids poo, its part of me job, I can do Janet (me chicken) poo, but I CANT DO DOG POO..... it must be difficult sometimes to have a smearer, my friends child does it, but like you, its just part of her life and daily routine, so she deals with it :)....

LOVE the dumpy photo LOL

Phil Plasma said...

Congratulations on reaching 100!
We are just now in the midst of potty training our two year old daughter, there have been some accidents, but also some successes.

Pipany said...

BBC said...

Congratulations on 100 posts. All that work helps keep you off the streets, it's safer in your home.

Casdok said...

True. But C has smeared when out as well!

Suzy said...

Happy 100th post.

Thank you for sharing the lives of you and C.

Love,
Suzy

FXSmom said...

lmao...that's pretty good. Do you notice that our auties poo seems to smell so much worse than everyone elses too. Luckily Mat doesn't smear...he hates the feel of poo. But we do have the occasionally poo accident. Like you said in a past poo I do like how poo dissolves in the shower ;-)

Casdok said...

Or if you leave it to dry it dosnt smell so much!!!!!!!!!

Ian Lidster said...

You are a stalwart ladym, and quite wonderful. Obviously not squeamish, either. How long did it take you to get past a gag reflex? That would be my downfall.

kristina said...

I use dish detergent or my hands would always smell of "something."

Bonnie said...

I think I'll pass on the Kopi Luwak...

Happy 100th post!

Billy Boy said...

I seen that person holding that sign on star wars..........Poo, what goes in has to come out and if is doesn't then shit. A very important little word which can be used for all sort of things and meanings.

Pixie said...

Happy 100th post.... Everything seems to be covered so I'll walk away quietly.

Happy 100th post! I love your poem -- it made me smile.

Tanya Brown said...

I propose a dump cake to celebrate! Here's a recipe:
http://www.tackyliving.com/article.php?id=31

I'm remembering what a wise old nurse very calmly told us at a child care class: "Try not to panic. It may be disgusting, but it has come out of them, so they aren't going to be hurt if they play with it or eat it."

Chris H said...

Congrats on reaching 100 posts... and lets not go there with the poo... it's one thing I do not think I could handle to be honest!!!!

buffalodickdy said...

Kind of a "crappy" 100th post...:)

MY OWN WOMAN... said...

Casdok, you are one sick cookie....and I love ya for it.

...and here I thought nurses were the only ones that could clean up poo with their right hand while eating with their left.....I'm betting you could do it too.

PS: As I was writing this response, my husband lets out this blood curdling ....... "OH SHIT!" I run upstairs to see what the problem is and on the floor is my freshly baked, still hot, apple crumb pie all over the floor. He has the look of distress on his face and I burst into laughter. "What's so funny?" he asks. "Oh... just that we should be thankful that what we are cleaning up is pre-digested pie and not post digested pie."

Once again, you have given me a fresh outlook on things. Thank you.

Get Off My Lawn! said...

Nice poem. My daughter likes to poo in the bath and draw with it. Not so sanitary but kind of cute after you've cleand it.

March Day said...

Great poem! I do so love your sense of humor.

TheBirdman33 said...

That is quite a poem, I've definately never read anything like it.

And now I am even more glad that I don't drink coffee.

Joy said...

I love your poo poem. That is hilarious.

Jen P said...

We've only had one smearing incident. I think it will be the last as he has tactile issues. Very informative post...especially the coffee....

shauna said...

I love your blog--it's wonderful that you're spreading awareness of autism. We had my son tested when he was two, so I did a little research while we went through that. And your poem rocks--my three-year old (still not potty trained) provides me with plenty a poo-poo story...
