Poopie pants times two

I didn't have to work today so it was my turn to take Mariah, Brinlee, and Asia to gymnastics tonight. Tatum threw a fit as we were getting ready to leave because she wanted to go, so she got to go with us. To start out the trip, we got there right as Mariah and Brinlee's class was starting because they got home a little late from school. So they quickly changed and rushed into class, in the meantime Asia and Tatum were playing on the play structure and having a good time. At one point Tatum told me she had to go potty, so I took her. Not long after that Asia came running up to me and said she had to go potty, I told her to put her shoes on and go to the bathroom and she did. In the meantime Tatum came up to me and said that she had to go potty again. I took her to the bathroom and she had pooped a little bit in her panties, so I put her on the toilet and she finished her business. Her underwear was too dirty to put back on her so she had to go commando for the rest of the afternoon at the Kid's Club. This of course did not bother her. We get out of the bathroom and off she goes to find Asia. After about 5 minutes of not being able to find Asia, Tatum and I went to the girl's bathroom, opened the door a little bit and called "Asia," she answered me and I asked if she was o.k. and she said yes. A minute or so later she came out of the bathroom and informed me that she had pooped in her panties, I thought "Oh great, now what?" I was thinking that hopefully it will only be a little bit like Tatum's. So I asked her if she pooped a little or a lot in her panties...she said a lot. We all (Me, Tatum and Asia) went to the boy's bathroom and into the only stall there, we got Asia's clothes (one piece leotard that is not easy to get on or off of the kid) and let me just say, it definitely was not a little accident. That is also when I noticed that her leotard was wet around her mid-section. I asked her why she was wet and she informed me that she had tried to clean her panties out by rinsing them in the toilet when she was in the girls' bathroom. So, I put her on the toilet, cleaned her up as much as possible without any wipes (the wipes are in the diaper bag which was at home with Kristy and Roxelle). Then I realized that she got a little poop on her leotard, so I went out of the stall to wash it off as much as possible in the sink and some boy was waiting for the stall. So, there we are, me rinsing off Asia's leotard in the bathroom sink, Asia standing in the stall butt naked, Tatum trying to stand on her head to look underneath the stall wall, and some strange boy waiting for the stall who was probably wondering what kind of freak circus he just walked in to. I wrung Asia's leotard out as much as possible and went back into the stall and put it back on her soaking wet. She was also now going commando and she still had to go through her gymnastics class. She was a little pill throughout the class because she did not want to pay attention and the rest of the class had to wait for her to stop goofing off a few times before they could move on to the next task. After all was said and done I was glad for her class to end and go home. Oh, by the way, the first thing we did when we got home was give Asia a shower.

Poor will, It does a mom's heart good to hear that it happens to dad's too, and that they now have a little perspective when we say we have had a long day. Bravo for his massive amounts of patience. I think Ryan would have yanked everyone out and just come straight home!

You are a great DAD!! A lesser man couldn't have handled that situation!!

Oh that is so funny!! At first I was thinking no big deal as I read it, but then realized it was Will's story, not Kristy's! Poor guy. I guarantee Darren would have pulled all out and thrown them in the car and probably not have taken them again for a while. LOL Great patience though, Will:)
