This was a crappy way to start a beautiful Saturday morning.
Let me set the scene.
While at the park, 3 fire engines and 10 firemen arrived at the big yellow home directly across the street from the park. Ari squirmed like a worm trying to free himself from my arms to get a closer look at the big red trucks and the people gawking on the sidewalk. He wasn't wearing shoes or socks but I figured a little dirt couldn't hurt him. So down he went. And away he crawled.
He crossed the cement. He went over the grass. And then he crawled directly through a huge pile of dog sh*t.

Poor kid stunk! I actually gagged. So we stripped him down, dunked him in the fountain, and used up all of our overpriced but delightfully scented, only-for-emergencies, Mustela wipes. (I didn't want to risk getting any poop on my stroller. Priorities people.) We then brought the naked guy home, gave him a bath, and put him down for a nap.
I can still smell the dog poo. In fact, I think there's some on my pants. Yup, let me confirm that. Crap!
Usually I appreciate a good story about #2. Not today.
