So much for a warm bath....





Ok, I actually sat down to post earlier but just couldn't think of anything worthy of blogging. Sure, lots of things are going on with us but I just felt it was either not blog worthy or I'm just too tired to remember it all. Also, I haven't been taking many pictures lately so nothing there to post either. UNTIL......
So, the whole family was nestled all snug in their beds and I decided to take a long, hot, bubbly and relaxing bath. I check on everyone and all seems calm. I get the water ready and get in. I'm enjoying my time to myself thinking about all kinds of random things and getting lost in the peacefulness of it all. Suddenly I hear a weird scratching sound. I sit up a little bit trying to figure out where it came from. Ok, I decide that maybe it was nothing. I get all relaxed again and there it is again. I'm listening and it hits me that it's my dog, Kelsey, scratching at the bathroom door. This is very WEIRD b/c she never does that. So I get up and let her in the bathroom thinking that for some strange reason she wants to be with me. I tell her to lay down and then it happened. I want you to picture it ok. All chaos breaks loose.
Kelsey, is panting and acting kinda strange, she then positions herself on my nice bathroom rug and yep, she poops! And let me tell you it was not the poop of a happy dog if you get my drift. I'm looking in horror and jumping out of the bathtub as fast as I can. I sling open the door and run her out our back door. At that Alex gets up and checks on her too. She obviously has an upset stomach. I go back and get the nasty rug and sling it out the back door. Have you kept the image yet?? You guessed it. I did not grab a towel as I ran out of the bathroom. I mean my dog had diarrhea for Heaven's Sake!! So as I'm standing in the living room discussing this situation with my husband I realize that well, we have no blinds on our back door or our front door. All I find is a Disney Princess blanket to cover up with. Kelsey comes back in and seems to be ok now. Not sure if my pride or modesty is anymore but it is kinda funny now. It was not funny a little while ago.
I hope I have amused you again and reminded you why I call us the Hicks Circus! If it's not your child its your dog!!!
Kelsey is fine now and I did not finish my bath. Stay tuned for tomorrow's episode when you'll probably hear my mom say, "Hey what's your bath mat doing on your back deck?"

That sounds like something that would happen at my house. Really, if it isn't the kids, it's the dog!
