Dear Spatula AKA The Poop Stick,
Who would have thought, that you, the king of the kitchen would someday be the boss of the bathroom?
When I was pregnant with my first baby, I had decided that I wanted to use cloth diapers. After hours and hours of research (good thing pregnancy lasts 9 months!) I had a list of things that I felt I needed and a list that I wanted.
On the wanted list was the diaper sprayer. A handy-dandy gadget that hooks up to your toilet and you use to spray off the sticky mess from your diapers. This gadget comes with a nice price tag that I was unwilling to swallow.
So when I didn’t get one for my baby shower, I decided that my baby would never have gross sticky poop.
Once my baby did start having gross sticky bowel movements, I started looking at the diaper sprayer again. But the whole process seemed a little too messy. I even found online a type of guard that prevents the water from splashing all over the place. No, thanks!
Then one day, as I was using you, my dear spatula, to get every single last drop of brownie batter from the bowl into the pan, inspiration struck. I grabbed your twin from the back of the drawer, you know, the one who was slightly melted from a previous kitchen mishap. I carefully trimmed off the melted part then taped a piece of green tape to the handle, on which I wrote ‘Poop Stick’. (This is to prevent that anyone may accidentally bring it back to the kitchen.)
And hip hip hooray! My problem was solved!
Furthermore, you couldn’t be easier to use. No installation, no messy spraying, and completely portable!
I do sometimes giggle and wonder what people think when they come over and see you ‘The Poop Stick’ sitting on top of the toilet. Only a few brave souls have dared ask!
But as long as I have babies, there you will sit,
taking good care of all the day’s….. poop! 🙂
