Poop, never fails to confuse me in this household. One week it’s the runs, the next it’s constipation. Usually it’s Parker having the issues, as Holden is a once-a-dayer almost like clockwork.
Right after lunch he sits down and lets one fly. Parker has never quite been so predictable, and other than the stomach flu- has ALWAYS had a congested ass. Days without pooping, rock hard poop, rabbit poop- all the different kinds of hard poop you can imagine- he’s had it.
Holden’s colon must have been feeling left out, because it’s been acting very similar to Parker’s lately. I don’t know what’s up with him, but lately he’s been hoarding his poop. Refusing to go until he literally cannot hold it anymore.
It first started with him not going for a day or two and then both Thomas and I noticing him standing with his knees locked together, swaying ever so slowly back and forth. We rushed him to the bathroom, but nothing came out. He just sat there crying about it. What we did find was liquid in between his checks. Foul smelling liquid.
He went to bed that night without relief, and when he woke up the entire room smelled like the inside of a port-o-potty at an all you can eat Indian buffet. He had leaked crap out of his ass while sleeping and then proceeded to sleep in it for the rest of the night… leaving a layer of crusty crap permeating his skin for hours. His butt broke out in hives. It was just that bad.
That day we went to my brother’s house for dinner, still no poop from Holden, and once again saw him doing the knee-locked sway. This time once we sat him on the potty, I guess his stomach had finally completely filled itself with shit to where it could contain no more, and it released… in the longest, THICKEST poop log I have EVER seen. Not just from a child, but from any grown adult. I have never seen anything like it and hope not to again. It was so big that Thomas thought he had to take a picture of it, I guess for proof in case no one believed us about its sheer mass.
He’s done that (and the ass leakage) three times now. Tonight he decided to scream on the toilet for a good half an hour before finally calming down and letting it out.
I honestly can’t figure out how such a small person can get out such a HUGE crap. And it’s not just him- it’s Parker too. The poops are honestly the sizes of their forearms, and twice as long. How does that happen? How is it physically possible for a hole to stretch that big??
Our pediatrician suggested Miralax for Parker… i’m thinking Holden needs a dose or twelve of it too.
You wouldn't sniff a stranger's butt to see who pooped their pants.... so you probably shouldn't do these other parental things to strangers, either. holdinholden.com/2017/12/weir…

You know that feeling when you don't chew a chip all the way and it cuts you all the way down and you swear it's gonna kill you, but you go ahead have another right after? That's what it's like when you decide to have another kid.
