Pooper Scooper

Ivy enjoyed her first dip in the pool this weekend. Within minutes she decided she did not need a swimming suit and started shedding its parts! She wanted to be free- that is when our privacy fenced yard will come in handy.... until then we apologize to the residents of Outrider Way.

Ivy and Daddy playing "Hokey Pokey"- Ivy donning only her bottoms!


Minutes after shedding the top she decided that the bottoms need to come off too. She continued playing and squealing that she was a "Nakey girl!" After a few minutes her mood started to change. She was doing some weird things with her tummy. We thought she was holding her pee- it is a new thing that she has been doing. It makes me a nervous wreck because I know it can lead to a bladder infection. So she would suck in her tummy and stand still and then she would splash and play in her birthday suit like all was well!

Ivy watering the grass with her cute little bare bottom exposed!


Then things really went down hill in the Smorstad yard. Ivy totally froze and said she needed to go potty. I went to take her out of the pool and she stiffened like a statue. When I sat her down in the yard and started walking toward the deck she did the unthinkable....


I kept thinking- No, she didn't just do that! Then she followed by telling me she pooped on the potty. Not quite, girlfriend! Better luck next time.

At that point, Daddy became the old fashioned "pooper scooper!" I took this picture while doubled over with laughter. I thought it was absolutely hysterical.... but I must say I hope (for Greg's sake) that this never happens again!


  1. oh girl.... JH somehow this weekend removed his underwares and put his pants back on and then pooped... all i can say is praise the lord for CROCS... it was a mess! Those kiddos of ours.. what are we gonna do with them??

  7. Hahaha! That is hilarious! Ella does that weird thing with her belly too. I always ask her if her tummy hurts and she says no. Strange?
