Yep, that's right. Today is the Keepin' It Real Extravaganza Part Deux.
So, this go 'round, we're supposed to talk about Stupid New Mom moments. But, seriously y'all, I've racked my brain and I can only come up with one that is even mildly blog-worthy. And you've already heard about my inability to predict the direction in which to fire a spewing child.
I KNOW there are many MANY more, but I have this thing called momnesia.
Now, what were we talking about? Oh yeah....
I'm not saying I'm perfect, by any means, but all the stories I have to tell don't seem stupid so much as .... well, I don't know...they just don't seem that interesting. Oh sure, I could talk about how dumb it was to wear 4" heels while pregnant, or how I should have slept when Lorelai slept as a newborn and DIDN'T, but....those aren't exactly riveting. If I was reading someone's blog about that, I'd stop reading.
So, I'm going to tell you about a FRIEND'S stupid mom moment.
Disclaimer: This is a copy/paste of her email. So, what is said here is pretty much stuff friends say to one another...not something she would blog about if she had a blog. Which, she doesn't. I'm still trying to get her to start one....after reading this following email, you'll see that she has enough to make an interesting blog.
And, the name of her 17-month old daughter has been changed to protect her from future school-bullying days.
Subject: Turd Catcher (seriously...if you are eating, just close down my page now)
So I took all of Holly's clothes off and let her walk around naked as I usually do in the morning so she can get some diaper-free time. A few minutes later I grabbed a diaper and was going to go put it on her when the TV caught my attention ... and I forgot for a second.
Then I looked over at her and I saw the face...the pooping face.
I said "no don't poop yet!" But it was too late. She was standing up and there was a 6-incher poking out from between her cheeks. I grabbed the diaper and caught the turd just in time before she pinched it off.
It was a great moment in my life as a mommy.
So, this is definitely a new mom moment. Granted her daughter is a little older, but when it's your first, it's always new!!!
Thanks for reading.
