A love letter to my husband.
I started potty training both of my kids around 5 months old. Why? Because I’m a little nuts, and why make them sit in their poop any longer than necessary?
I noticed that sometimes the baby’s poop would make letters in her potty. At this gross yet funny moment I decided one day that I would write a love letter to my husband in our child’s poop (totally keeping the romance alive!). Thank goodness we had a second child because the first didn’t finish “writing” the alphabet and baby #2 (ha!) is a star producer.
As baby #2 neared completion of the alphabet it occurred to me that there are a lot of awesome/weird people in this world who would also enjoy the novelty of sending someone a love/hate letter in actual poop.
All letters are organically made, they poop and I take a photograph. Not all poops are letter poops. Sadly, they are not THAT talented. Although, one time the baby wrote a word in one go!
Right now you are either laughing or thinking what the f*@# is wrong with this lady. Both are acceptable. We have to pay for college somehow, right?
I’d really love to make more shit paraphernalia. ABC board book?! ABC Poster!?! And the poo de grace: An app that would allow you to text message people in turds. If funding goes well you could have more options for sending poop than you know what to do with!
Risks and challenges
I’m trying to get a set of numbers out of baby #2, and I’m afraid 8 just might be asking for too much! Luckily, he’s a pork pie and eats like a machine so there is still hope with a 2 or 3 poop a day habit.
I also worry that my children will hate me for this when they are older, but you can’t win them all, so....
In reality, this project is coming together super fast (like you had too much coffee and need to go NOW fast) and there might be unforeseen hiccups. I really wanted to get some rewards in the mail for Christmas presents so am making the decision to go ahead even though I don’t feel completely ready.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
