The Most Amazing Bath Time Save Ever

If you have small children, you know the pain of putting your child in the bath only to have them say they have to go to the potty. Sometimes they don’t say it and just go in the tub. That also sucks.

Are they still getting clean if there is pee in the bathtub? I vote yes. The ratio of pee to water is totally acceptable in my books.

Poop is an entirely different story. Once the poop has entered the bath water, the water is completely contaminated. Poop infected bath water must be drained, the tub cleansed, and then re-filled. It is a big pain in the ass that I would do almost anything to avoid.

Which is why, one balmy evening in the bathroom, when my son said ‘Mommy I have to poo,” I reached out and caught the poop before it landed in the bath water.

That was my shining moment, my bath time save, the most amazing bath time save ever! And I hope I never have to do it again.

    Hilarious! And so true.

    Pee is sterile. It contains ammonia, which is used in cleaners. While I personally would not bathe in it, it’s good enough for the kids.

  3. Bath Rule #1: Never, never, comment on how lucky you are that this baby/toddler hasn’t pooped in the tub…

  4. I once made my sister laugh so hard when she was little that she pooped in the tub. And I agree with the pee to water ratio. Totally safe.

    You must’ve scored after that interception.

    And for that, you win an extra-special Best Mommy Award. Well done!

  8. Eew. That said, I’m totally with you on the pee. It’s sterile for the first ten minutes regardless.

  9. You need a medal for that save! And I agree with the pee vs poo rule.
