cause to celebrate

after a long 14+ days of NO POOP, E finally exploded today. ok, exploded doesn't even come close to describing it. she detonated. she erupted. she blasted. what do you expect? 14+ days with no poop = cloggage like you've never seen.

indeed, there was great cause to celebrate.

and so, to celebrate this happy poop day, we made a happy poop day cake:



i know what you're thinking. marci, you're so weird. and a little grotesque. why did you make a happy poop day cake?? and, why did you make your cake look like poop? to answer the first question: i love any excuse to make a delicious dessert. to answer the second: well, honestly, it was an accident. i've never made homemade chocolate cake before (obviously). and taking cake out of two 8" rounds to stack them on each other is a lot harder than it sounds. but i'm happy about the accident. i think it is very appropriate that our happy poop day cake looks like a big pile of poop.

thank goodness it didn't taste like it.

happy poop day to us!


{a very happy, empty ellie}

*note: M would like me to make it clear that i was NOT the one who cleaned the explosion. you see, ellie conveniently chose to erupt while i was at work today. he was the knight in shining...poop.

Marci you are too much. I feel like my comments on your blog are always the same... "you are hilarious" or "you're a crackup" but there is obviously a reason for that. Who else makes Happy Poop Day cake???!!

I don't like chocolate cake, but I do like how hilariously clever you are making a poop day cake. Love it and I'm happy to hear Elly is all cleaned out. Way to go MIKE for cleaning up baby!

This post is just one of many reasons we need to hang out more. Please leave the poop at home. You can bring Ellie though...

poor mike! I can just imagine the mess she made.

Soak her clothes in oxy clean. It works wonders!

Oh my gosh! 14 days? Are you serious? Poor thing.

I'm so glad you celebrated. That is certainly something to celebrate. Do you have any leftover poop cake? You should post the recipe on your blog.

And this is Leah, by the way.
