Poop! AHHHHHHHHHHH! We were having a grand ole' time in church, when we smelled something. So i ran my son to the bathroom, and nothing. He sat on the toilet for a while, and still nothing. So we returned to our seats. Then..... it happened. We smelt it. He pooped in his pants.
I'd like to pause here for a moment and tell you that my son will be 5 years old in November, and has just understood what potty training means. He has been without a diaper for a week. It has been a great achievement. This is his first "poop" accident.
We did not have any spare pants or underwear and to make it worse, he smeared it over his legs as we were taking off his pants. Talk about emergency!!! 10 minutes and lots of wet paper towels later, he ran out of the church bathroom in front of the whole congregation with just a shirt on. NOTHING ELSE.
I packed up our stuff and went home. Luckily my daughter and I had decided to wear really long scarves on our heads to church today and i used them as blankets for him as he rode home in the stroller. God provides.
I'm still upset tho. I hate having to leave church because of my kids. It has happened so many times for one reason or another. It has gotten easier as they have gotten older, but it is SO hard to worship and fellowship when you have to stop every few minutes to take them to the bathroom, or to calm/quiet them down, or correct them, or even chase after them in the sanctuary.....
Please tell me i am not the only one who has dealt with this.
This makes me want to consider homechurch. And being that there are no likeminded people in my area, it would be a congregation of one.
