Eew! Whats next?!

*WARNING - Gross Post because of Gross Day*

There are three incidents in Aaron's life so far that really stand out in my memory. Yes, there are plenty of lovely, happy and cute memories that I often blog about but today, I'm talking about the other type of memory. The kind that forms because you were either shocked, 'eew-ed' (meaning repulsed but in a kinder sense), or both.

The first happened one night when I went to pick him up for his 10pm feed. I was giving him a little cuddle when I felt that his shirt was wet. I thought there was a bit of a sourish smell as I entered the room but had dismissed it. Now, that thought came back and as I looked down at his white shirt, I see a big stain across the front. WHAT?! How did all that pee get up there? Oh No...Pee would have been GOOD. To cut a long story short. It was actually an exploded diaper full of poop that migrated EVERYWHERE and has now transfered to me as well. *SHOCKED AND EEEW!*

The second happened not long after that first incident. Aaron had a really upset stomach and it transformed him into a machine gun with poopy ammunition. It fired with or without the diaper on and I ended up jumping out of harms way quite a few times because of the distance he managed. It was annoying to clean up that mess all day long but you've got to see the humor in it. After the first incident, I was no longer eew-ed. Just *SHOCKED*

Today, I formed the third memory and it has nothing to do with poop. Aaron has had a pretty bad cold for the past few days. It hasn't slowed him down at all but his nose has been like a tap. Today, he stopped letting us wipe his nose. Maybe it hurt. There was no way I could get a tissue or handkerchief near him. It would just drip and he would smear it with the back of his hand all over his face. Then he'd examine his hand or he'd stick his tongue out to try to taste it. Just really really gross stuff. The EEW memory forming came when I used my hand to clean him up and found that he was ok with that. I've had to do that all day! I'm not shocked that I had to do this but I had a big 'EEW' blinking in my brain the whole time. Long, sticky, gooey, finger clinging snot. You may think that this is nothing compared to poop but when you've got all ten fingers entangled.....*EEW*

Anyone who has been a parent won't be grossed out by this...I don't think there's a single one of us who hasn't had the experience of projectile pooping/vomiting, ultra-runny noses, and all the other unlovely things that go with small children. This is why God made little children so cute...so that we can resist the urge to trade them in on a dog when things like this happen!

Oh the joys of raising kids!

Kellan said...

Yep - kids a goopy, gunky, stinky, slobbery ... messy, definitely go together - yuk! Take care and stock up on those Kleenex. Kellan

Um, this is not good stuff. Did you feed Aaron formula ever? We have tried it a bit recently and damn does that stuff ever come out the other end smell awful. Enough said about that though.

Amanda said...

Yes, no wonder they are so cute!

egan, I haven't tried any formula so far but I have heard from others about that stench. When your daughter starts solids, there will be lots of other interesting things to 'observe' as well...not just the smell :)

egan said...

Just great, I can't wait to observe poop. Solid foods scare me. Is it bad to breastfeed until college?

Amanda said...

LOL! That gives a whole new meaning to the term 'Mama's boy'.

Oh God, I hate snot. The joys of parenting indeed.

When Aaron is older, you can lay the guilt trip on all the sacrifices you made and things he put you through inclding your three ewww incidences. :-)

I'm back!
