PSA: Blue

Herewith let it be known that, if a four and half year old child eats Carvel ice in a not-found-in-nature shade of intense turquoise blue, it will stain her face and hands and legs, and, on the following day, it will cause her poop to be blue.

That is all.

Hmmm, good to know.

Blue poop? FUN!

That reminds me... I forgot to tell the daycare folks that Patrick ate his weight in beets last night. Should be getting a call from them anytime now.

Blueberries when eaten in massive quantities do the same thing except with WAY more anti-oxidant power.

As Mad said, we experience this with blueberries regularly.

I am happy to report that I now never have any idea what color anyone's poop (except my one) is!

Hilarious. Also know that when you eat roasted beets, you are not dying of blood in your stool either.

See, artificial colors are fun.

I'm laughing. Yeah, I remember those days ....

alejna said...

Ah, yes, I remember some blue cotton candy from my childhood...

And there's black licorice, too. Tends to lead to results in a deep forest green.

My kids love blue poop. Freaks.

It will also permanently stain the front of that dress you bought especially for a party and someone dumped cake on your lap. And won't ever, ever come out.

Aunt Becky said...

I purposefully buy my dad blue Peeps for Easter for that exact purpose.

Oh how the smurfs would be so proud

What a lovely surprise!

Rima said...

That is frightening, yet also strangely fascinating. I just read a similar post the other day where a photo of the offending poop was actually posted! IMAGINE!

i concur.

Laughing and laughing and laughing...but maybe that just tells you all you need to know about how much attention is spent on poop around here.

OK, here goes the hick...what's Carvel ice?

Thanks for the warning!

Hmm...more than a quart of fresh picked blueberries down the gullet of an eighteen-month old will have interesting results, too...as will too many Froot Loops.

Heh...the best fun is feeding them this stuff when you know someone else will be...erm...experiencing?...witnessing?...the end (ahem) results.

Wow, blue! That sounds horrifying and amazing all at the same time.

Ozma said...

I find that more than a little bit scary.

Angeline said...

I would love to see it! Awww...didn't you take a photo of it?! It must be amusing!

Mental P Mama said...

Somebody should write a song...

MadMad said...

Hahaha! (But you know what gets it off their face? Toothpaste. Look at me here, with these "tips.")

FreshHell said...

Yes, mine enjoyed their blueberry-colored poo, too!!

Too much Gogurt in one day produces a similar effect the next.
