I always thought that once  a stomach virus attacked it was gone at least until the next year…..not so much!  We were hit again 2 weeks ago and haven’t been the same since!  I have been cleaning up poop for over a month!!!!  Oh the laundry! 

Well it seemed today we were finally over it!  Amelia hasn’t had a leaky diaper and Grace hasn’t had any accidents…..until naptime!  I put them both down and neither would sleep.  I went in to get Amelia, but left Grace because she was talking, not screaming!  About an hour after I put her down she called for me.  I went up to check on her and she had removed her diaper and pooped all over her bed!  Back to the laundry and bathing!  I was so angry, but taking deep breaths released the anger!!!  Not sure what her reasoning was for the incident, but also not sure there are reasons for anything at this age:)
