tiny slice of my life: dogs and boys...

january 19, 2017

dog rises, bangs on door. dog goes out.
dog steps in poo.
dog bangs on opposite side of door. dog enters.
dog smudges poo from door, through kitchen and living room.
i swear.
clean dogs feet. mop floor. return to bed.
insist dog stays on floor.

boy rises. is dressed and given grapes, watermelon and oatmeal.
squashes grapes and watermelon next to my bed.
i clean.
boy dips truck in oatmeal.
i clean.

i take dog and boy outside.
boy steps in poo. smears on hem of pants.
i clean shoe. i change his pants.

boy poos sticky messy poo.
i clean bum and place new diaper.

boy sticks the feet of woody and bullseye in oatmeal i failed to remove earlier.
dances them all over table.
comes to me with messy toys and insists i clean.
i clean.

i bathe.
i dry and dress.
find poo on my own shoe.

i swear.
nearly cry in frustration.

cannot wait to go to work where there is no poo or oatmeal.


  1. I'm sorry for the frustration. I'll clean up some poo today!

  2. Oh... but there is a whole bunch of poo there... just a different kind.

    And for the record, I thought you were literally was about shit and cereal. :) I should have known better.
