I'm obviously still learning about this whole motherhood thing and I know that I will continue to learn until the day I die. You would think however that I would learn some lessons sooner rather than later. Apparently I'm fuckin stupid and those said lessons are not learned yet!!
I go pick Mees up from daycare, we walk out to the car and her new thing is to hide and run around the other side of the car. So I get her stuff in and go around to the other side of the car to get her. She looked at me and said "Mama, poop." Ok....well I didn't smell anything and we were on our way out. I'll check her when we get home!
We get home.....I go around to get her out and she says "Mama, poop." Okay.... well maybe I should take into consideration that she is getting better with her words and is understanding things. So like any self respecting mother would do, I pick her up and shove my nose in butt! Ahhh yeah.....it smells like a cow shit in a barn, ate that shit, shit again and then maybe rolled around in it just a little bit! Now you would think that since I just sniffed her ass that would be enough....OHHH NO....I decide it's necessary to peek in her diaper. Why would I need to do that you ask, I don't really f'in know why because when I did I came away with a mothereffin hand full of shit! Really right now? Why couldn't the whole smelling of the butt situation been enough? Not sure why. I can't really give you a good answer. Apparently though, for me, shit on my hands was what needed to happen today! Yay for me!!!
So Mommy Tip #1:
When your kid says she pooped.....take her word for it!! And if you smell their butt and it smells....just change the damn diaper. No need to see what it looks like before hand!
