STFU Parents: Do Viral Pictures Of Babies Pooping On Their Parents Encourage Other Parents To Overshare?
6. The Mid-Poop Kodak Moment Offender
When I startedÂ STFU, ParentsÂ in 2009, I didn’t know that much about babies and kids (but BOY, DO I NOW!), and I remember being extremely grossed out by two separate text-based submissions that involved babies who were “mid-poop.” First, I posted about a mother’sÂ “still-poopin’ diaper” experienceÂ in which her friend commented, and I quote, “Those are great. It’s like a ice cream machine and the handle is stuck in the on position,” and I nearly threw up on my laptop. Then, a few short months later, I received another submission in which the posterÂ wrote about “peeking” in her baby’s diaperÂ “to see if he pooped and saw the soft serve as it was being made,” and let’s just say that my reception of ice cream trucks has never been the same. Now, we’ve officially come full circle with photographic evidence to prove that indeed, “round the corner, the chocolate’s made,” and sometimes “soft serve” poop winds up on people’s shirts as well as in hundreds of people’s Facebook feeds. Good job, everyone. Thanks for sharing and educating.
