When we last left our heroes, they were optimistic in their hopes of having successfully contained Nicky, (aka the Poop Monster) by using a button down sewn up sleeper.
Well since then there was one episode last week when Nicky went down for a nap and was put down in his regular clothes. Of course we ended up with a poopie situation after that, but that was our own fault.
But then there came a day when both his sleepers were dirty. So we improvised by pinning his pj bottoms to his pj top. It worked! We used two diaper pins, one on each side. Ah ha! Now, this gives us options! We have tons of two-piece pj sets! So we used a combination of zip up sleeper with one pin holding the zipper up and two piece pjs pinned at the sides.
Until last night. When Tom called urgently for me from Nicky's room.
I went in and Nicky was sleeping on his tummy, with his top still on, still pinned to his pants, but his pants and diaper were off to the side with a poopie. He'd not even played around. He'd just slipped out of his pants while they were still attached on two sides with diaper pins, taken off his diaper and fell asleep.
So we cleaned him up, cleaned and stripped the bed (that had JUST been washed that day) and put him back in a zippered sleeper pinned at the top.
Our heroes don't even have the energy to be mildly optimistic at this point. We're just hoping that the pins will stay safely shut. The doctor seemed to think that would be fine. Poop we can handle if we must. Poop and blood, well that's just too gruesome to contemplate.
Maybe we'll try the zippered sleeper backwards next time. Right now he's in his button down sleeper.
