And We’re Not Allowed Back In That Play Area

I’ve been a stay-at-home mom for a decade now. While I really treasure that I’ve been able to stay home with my kids, I am unashamedly a social person.

I love my play dates! My other homeschool mom friends and I would often meet at fast food restaurants that had indoor play areas. During public school hours, they are a veritable wonderland for little homeschool kids (and their moms).

We’d observe our kids at play (socialization—check!) while we chatted.

One of my kids is super focused and hated to interrupt her play time to take care of insignificant things like, oh, pooping.

No problem when she was in diapers. A social nightmare when she was preschool aged.

It only happened ever once in a while, so I’d sometimes be caught short, diaper-less and wiper-less. Thank goodness for extra fast food napkins in the car.

The worst time was when she went in the play tubes at McDonald’s. We’ve never been back to that restaurant, and it’s right by our house.

You can’t go back to McDonald’s when your kid poops in the tubes.

That outfit was a loss, but everything else had a Clorox moment. I can only hope the tubes in the play area got the same treatment.

I’ve enjoyed the new Clorox “Bleach It Away” commercials highlighting memorable messy moments and so I laughed out loud when I saw this one:

Yeah, it’s like that.

I received information about Clorox’s Bleach It Away campaign and am sharing my messy moment for the chance to win prizes from The SITS Girls.

To learn more about the messy moment program, check out Sharing your story on the Clorox fan page gets you entered for the chance to win $25,000 and daily prizes, and you can grab a coupon for Clorox® Regular Bleach.

I would love to hear your “bleach it away” moment. Let me know in the comments!
