Suzy's Poop

So here's the thing... Suzy poops permanent ink. Bright yellow permanent ink. With just a hint of orange to it.

She has blown out of every diaper she's worn for the past week. The diaper will not contain her.

Something in my child is grabbing ahold of something in the fabric of her clothing and refusing to let go. It is really quite frustrating. Especially when the poop occurs and immediately the poopy-clothing is ripped from her body and treated with stain-fighting chemicals and then appropriately placed into a load of laundry that was just started (there was no delay). Despite the immediacy of treatment and cleaning, the stain had already set.... HOW?

So if you see a small baby with gold-stained clothes or ones that look as though they may have been recently dyed deep yellow by her parents, you will know that Suzy has struck again and rather than fight the stain, mom and dad have just accepted defeat and gone to the laundry aisle of the local grocery and bought out all the appropriate shade of dye.
