It turns out that the large quantities of blueberries Gracie Anna has consumed in the last two days have had a laxative effect. (This is likely totally normal, but I haven’t researched it.) She’s pooped more today than any other 12-hour period in her life. It was richly indigo, but other than that, none of it was loose like diarrhea or otherwise strange.
During the most recent dirty diaper clean up of the day, I did a cursory wipe of the blue butt, and turned away to encapsulate the stink. When I looked back, the child was crawling away from me, pants dragging behind, still attached at the ankles, blue butt waving like a flag. When I said her name, she turned around and grinned.
I couldn’t help but laugh.
(The camera wasn’t nearby or I might have gotten a picture of it.)
