Before becoming a mommy, I never thought an entire conversation could revolve around poop.
Trust me .. it can.
I just spent 10 minutes talking to my sister about poop. Emma's poop to be exact.
In fact, I've been talking poop all day. I'm trying to determine if the nastiness coming forth from Emma is from teething, an ear infection, strange food, or just because she's 16 months old and poops a lot.
We've got a low grade fever (99 under the arm)...that is off and on. Runny nose. Lots of drool. Pulling at the gums (a sure sign of more teeth coming!). Oh and poop. Lots and lots of it. It's just nasty.
Daycare says she's OK, but not really herself. I'm leaning toward teething...but it could be an ear infection. We might have a trip to the doctor's this afternoon.
Well, Emma has a double ear infection. Which, in case you didn't know, can cause icky poop. Add to the mix a little virus (what is causing the ear infection to begin with) and some serious teething and you have a recipe for POOP. And a cranky, irritable little girl. With a sore butt.
