This story is short but still makes me giggle. My little sister Shannon stayed with us for a month when Beau was almost a year old, I think she thought it was going to be more fun than it turned out to be. The only space we had for her was in Conner and Beau’s room on a blow up mattress, we have such a glamorous set up for our house guests. Poor thing got to live the Denton bedroom shuffle for a whole month.
One morning I came in to get Beau out of bed and Shannon was just getting up as well, I don’t know but the screaming baby might have been what woke her. When I walked into the room the first thing I noticed was the very distinct smell of hot poop. I ran over to Beau hoping he hadn’t painted with it or eaten it. I found him sitting up in his crib right and next to him a large pile of poo. I grabbed him and checked his diaper trying to figure out how the poo had escaped, the diaper was pretty secure and it was quite a large pile. Shannon came over and we started checking everything around the bed trying to figure out how Beau possibly could have deposited this large pile of feces in his crib while keeping his diaper on. After searching for a time and finding nothing I turned to Shannon and said,
“Did you poop in your nephew’s crib?”
Shannon, “Oh my gosh no!”
“Well if it wasn’t Beau and it wasn’t you, I don’t know how it got there, unless you’re going to try and tell me a raccoon snuck in last night and pooed next to Beau then left.”
Shannon, “Are there raccoons here?! How would it have gotten in?! Now I’m terrified to sleep in this room!”
“It probably wasn’t a raccoon. Beau is just a pooping ninja.”
I never for sure figured out where the poo came from but the funniest part was about an hour later when Shannon turned to me and said,
“I am seriously terrified of raccoons are you sure there aren’t raccoons getting into the apartment?”
Uh yeah, I would have to say I was pretty certain there were no raccoons getting into the apartment, ever. Way to try and hide your guilt Shan.
Hi I'm Beau, did you know I'm a poop ninja?
