I know, I know. NINE days. (!!!!!!!!!)
But I had googled it, and all of the internets I read told me that it's fine since he's still exclusively on the boob. Breastmilk is so incredibly efficient (magic potion-like, if you will) that there's not a lot of waste, so there's not really a lot of poop once his digestive system figures out what it's supposed to do. I don't really LOVE cleaning up poop, so I didn't medicate Atticus with prune juice or whatever to get things moving on their way. He seemed to be fine, and I figured he'd go when he needed to go.
Eh. Um. Well. He went.
He was sleeping so peacefully in his crib during his morning nap. I was reading about
(This is one of those times that I'd like to thank the inventors of modern day cloth diapers. I know, KNOW, beyond the shadow of doubt, that one of those disposable diapers would not have held in the lava explosion from Atticus' volcanic exit-only hole. I KNOW it. His sheet, cute outfit, and socks were spared. I only wish the same could be said for my hands).
It was the biggest pile of crap I've ever seen, and I've seen lots of piles of crap. My brother doesn't flush the toilet, like, ever.
While I was standing over the changing table obsessively counting wipe after wipe, I thought to myself: Self, this would be a great time for your first blog contest and give away!
The Prize: Do two (2) $10 gift cards to Sephora (or Amazon, if you'd rather have Amazon) sound good to you? I like Sephora a lot. I like Amazon too. I guess you can pick if you win. ;)
How to Enter: You can enter twice (2 times, for those of you who don't know what twice means).
1 - Leave a comment with your guess as to how many wipes it took to clean up the mess.
2 - Leave a comment telling me how you read this blog. Do you subscribe via google reader? Email subscription? Or do you type in thehagaboaters.blogspot.com each and every single time you want to see what I'm up to (
The Fine Print: The first person who guesses the correct number (and I've already texted my mom the answer, so I can't lie) of wipes wins a gift card. If no one gets it correct, I'll spend the gift card on myself. :) I'll use random.org or some other random number generator to get the winner of the other gift card. You have until this Sunday, the 21st, to enter. I'll post the winner in a blog entry next week, and you'll have 48 hours to contact me with your contact information to get your prize. 10-4? Over and out.
