WARNING!!!

To all those parents out there with children who aren't 200% potty trained:

When your child has an "accident" in their clothes (and those of you who haven't gone through the entire potty training experience, it WILL happen), please make sure that any article of clothing that has been violated, is turned inside out completely BEFORE laundering in the same machine that the rest of the family uses. This is particularly important for those PJ's/sleepers with feet that are always scrunched up into little balls after your child has taken them off. You will want to take each individual foot and carefully turn it inside out until the very tip toes are exposed, making sure there aren't any hidden surprises. TRUST me on this one.

Wow, you do soooo much better than me - a #2 accident causes everything that touched it to go straight to the trash! I cannot imagine when you discovered your little suprise!

Nice one...I was eating lunch while reading this one. I am very anal and usually end up prerinsing as well as spraying it to death. Thanks for the mental note!

Oh come on people...you ALL have your gross stories!
:)

Let me clarify some things a bit: This happened on my hubby's time. He said he scraped/rinsed/cleaned them off (sorry for the graphic words). When I grabbed the pj's I looked them over and there was no sign of anything (so I thought)! So I said "what the heck" and threw them in the wash.

I've learned my lession, believe me. And, for the record, the pj's are in the trash!
