The dreaded blowout. Every mother knows what we’re talking about here — without getting into the scatological details, it haunts the dreams of all who’ve ever cared for an infant.
Diapers aren’t perfect, after all.
But you know what is perfect, even after an epic disaster of poopy proportions? Joanna Gaines’ house!
The former HGTV star recently shared a shot of her home after what she described as #blowouts and #allnighters. From what we can gather, her newborn son Crew had some intestinal distress that his Pampers weren’t able to contain — and yet, Joanna’s house still looks spotless!
This story is 50% relatable and 50% witchcraft.
The first half of the equation is that all babies eventually burst through their diapers. On the other hand, only a professional homemaker could possibly have everything cleaned up and looking this good so quickly! Scroll down to see the proof that Joanna’s decorating game is strong enough to actually remain impervious to messy baby accidents.
Joanna and Chip Gaines welcomed their fifth child in June.
Predictably, little Crew is absolutely adorable and has been flooding his mom’s Instagram ever since he arrived.
As far as we know, the toddler is perfectly healthy and happy — although still a long, long way from potty-trained.
Still, that doesn’t mean he’s not already destined to be in front of the camera. His parents can’t stop posing with him!
It has to be one of the most comfortable places for a baby to grow up.
Anyone who’s watched Crew’s parents’ shows know that all the homes they work on become cozy works of art.
But only in recent days did we learn that Joanna and Chip’s decorating abilities are so strong, they can even make a baby poo explosion look good!
Now, reading that, you would assume the photo would be full of stains, streaks, and maybe even some tears.
But that is NOT the case in the Gaines household.
It’s almost insulting, isn’t it? Joanna’s such a good homemaker that she doesn’t even suffer from blowouts like other moms!
Still, the post has spurred a lot of memories from her devoted followers.
Any parent tasked with changing a diaper has a similar horror story!
Although we have to admit, this one sounds especially rough. Almost like something out of a movie!
It also stirred up a lot of feelings in other parents.
While no one longs for the days of wiping up their children’s poo, that longing to take care of your kids never goes away.
Even the messy stories like this one have a way of making parents nostalgic.
But by far the strongest reaction is, like we said, how clean Joanna's house still looks!
It’s kind of unfair. Joanna makes keeping a spotless designer home look so effortless!
Seriously, where do we find a genie in a bottle? Because our first wish would be to get just a fraction of Joanna’s homemaking skills.
Lots of emotions flying around in this story — and lots of poo – but that’s just what being a parent is all about!
