The Makers of Clorox have come up with the Clorox Ick-tionary as a way to help parents change the way they talk and feel about messes by creating a new vocabulary around life’s messy moments.
When my youngest was a baby, we were shopping in a store one day when she had a major diaper blow-out. The poop had exploded up her back and I could see it seeping through her clothing. We took off running to the nearest public bathroom. As I took off her clothes, the poop dripped EVERYWHERE. It was a gigantic disaster.
I basically had to give her a bath in the sink and then put her back in a clean diaper. But her clothes were trashed so thoroughly that I ended up just wrapping them in a plastic bag and throwing them away. Then I had to track down a store employee to help me find some cleaner to clean up the disaster she left in her wake.
It was not my finer moment as a mother. Can you imagine how something so cute could make such a mess? Me neither…
