particular challenge we are working through with Max, which causes a lot of stress in our home. It's a subject that is tough for me, but I felt that it was important to write about it regardless.
What I didn't mention in that post was the super "ugly" cry I had one particular morning as a scrubbed feces out of Max's bedroom carpet. Something inside me broke. I could not start my day this way any more. Of course, it's all well and good for me to say that, but just because I don't want to do something doesn't change our reality. Scott and I made the decision to get laminate flooring put in so that at the very least, we could keep Max's room sanitary. The carpet upstairs was the original carpet that came with the home (25 years old) so it really was time to do something either way.
Lucky for us, there are some good financing options available. The installers did the entire job (3 bedrooms and a hallway) in one day (a true miracle). Of course, Max tested it fully the next morning by not only pooping on it, but upping the ante and peeing on the floor as well. Nice. The beauty of laminate is it can take one heck of a beating and is easy to clean. Plus, I've been lobbying for new flooring for a while, so if the only perk of all this poop is that the house gets a much needed upgrade, than I can accept that.
