Manic Monday - Graphic


Okay, I have already been informed (by my husband) that there is no reason for me to post this, even though it could get me the award for the most graphic post ever. And isn't that the point? This week's Manic Monday word is graphic.

I could seriously only think of one thing. I was drawing a blank. Morgen suggested I post a graph showing the number of red blood cells in my body compared to the caffeine blood cells. Not a bad idea, but it would be about 99.9 percent caffeine, so I thought that was too easy.

The one thing that came to my mind was the most graphic photo I have ever taken.

About two years ago, right before Georgia was born, we took Eli to the Blue Moose to satisfy my craving for fried pickles. Yum-o! At the Blue Moose, they always end the children's meal with a dish of ice cream or sherbet.

Well, this time, they served Eli a dish of bright turqoise ice cream. I think it was bubble gum flavored, but I have seriously never seen a color of ice cream that bright. Eli loved it, and inhaled the entire dish of ice cream.

The next day, I was going about my business, and went to change Eli's diaper. Yes, unfortunately this is before he was potty-trained. When I opened his diaper, I was not greeted by the usual poo, but I was greeted by bright turquoise poo. It was brighter than a turquoise Crayola crayon.

So, I did what any mother would do. I took a picture so I could email it to my husband at work. I mean, come on. I had to. I had never seen poo that color. Ever.

Even the picture didn't do it justice. It looks more green in the picture, but it was really BRIGHT turquoise. So, are you ready? Not for the faint of heart, here is the most graphic photograph I have ever taken.



Happy Manic Monday!

OMG!
Last time I saw poop that green was after eating a package of black licorice...(did I just admit that???)

Save that picture if you ever need a convenient reason to put your dear child into therapy....it may come in handy one day.

OY VEY!

When my daughter was about 18 months old, she ate some fruit cocktail. When I changed her diaper, there was a whole cherry in her poo. I made everyone come and look. LOL
I must say I've seen lots of different color poo, but never that color. I would have taken a pic too. :-)
