Poo Pieces - 05/09/14
For any mom reading this, the title won't even make you flinch. Others, well.... you may need to click out. This blog is an ode to all my fellow moms.
First off, let me just say I looooooove being a mom. I was so busy working on my career and so was he that my husband and I started our family late. So, I'm incredibly blessed to have 2 healthy children, but I've just got to tell you... if we had started earlier... I would have given the Duggars a run for their money. I love this!
The things my kids say, the things they do, the way they're learning to relate to the world around them is the most intriguing thing this curious journalist has ever and will ever be a part of.
So, why Poo Pieces as a title? Because that's what I had to clean up today. My dear husband left early before the rest of us were up. The toilet in our master bathroom apparently was showing signs of malfunctioning, so since he was running late, he simply closed the lid and stacked 10 rolls of toilet paper on top of it.
Somehow, we were supposed to all figure out that that meant the commode was out of order. When my son woke up, he was the first to run down to our room and use OUR toilet for some reason. In one fell swoop he throws off the toilet paper rolls and hops on board for his morning ritual. Then, he flushes.
For the next 45 minutes or so.... you know it... I'm cleaning up poo pieces.
Happy Mothers Day to all the good and loyal moms out there who've done that and more, who answer the call of motherly duty every day whether it's to wipe a tear, give a hug, correct behavior or sneak some neck sugar from your babies.... Your work is leaving a legacy.... and I'll just end by saying thank goodness for Comet, Lysol Wipes, Bleach and Soft Scrub. I kept them all in business today.
