Today I Really Knew I Was a Mom

We were in the car and I smelled poop.

On my hands.

I smelled my hands and sure enough, they smelled like poop. I didn’t see any poop, but I smelled it.

Then. I saw it. A little bit of poop right above my wedding ring.

That’s where the smell was coming from!

(We were possibly in a huge hurry to get out the door and I might have forgot to wash my hands after changing a diaper… possibly.)

So. I see poop on my finger.

I didn’t panic because I’m SUCH a mom that wouldn’t you know it… on the floor in between the passenger seats was a package of baby wipes. Thank you very much baby wipes, you saved me from the poop smell.

Life as a mom. It ain’t easy.

  1. HAHAHA! Love it! Believe me, during the course of a normal day, I almost always have poop, pee, AND snot on me some how, some way. Good times. Isn't being a mom so very glamorous? 🙂

  2. Haha!!! That was great! Can I just share a story with you that happened today? I am shopping at Jo-Ann Fabrics w/ my 3 kids (age 4, 2, 1) and I decide to go in w/ just my wallet. While in line (with A LOT of people around), my 2 year old lifts her hand up to me and says “mommy, what do I do with this?” On her hand was a huge booger……so what do I do, just open my wallet and find an old receipt to wipe it up in. Kids can be so gross! (but we love 'em anyway) – sorry for the long comment – your story reminded me of mine 🙂

  3. That made me laugh. My favorite is when I smell formula when my baby isn't eating and i realize she spit up on my clothes and had no idea

  4. ahhh gross… but relatable!

    a few weeks back, hubby was standing at the counter and stepped on something. um, it was poop. and we don't have any pets.

    j had been running around naked and made a mess on the floor. i thought i got it all. i guess that one rolled or something. EW!

    the things we go through as parents! 🙂

  5. that is NASTY!!!!! Makes me want to yak! I hate getting poo on my hands. I hate getting anything on my hands. I am a freak like that.

  6. Too funny – reminds me of when my husband decided it was a good idea to stick his finger INSIDE my daughter's diaper to see if she was wet. Well, she wasn't JUST wet, apparently – he was grossed out, I couldn't stop laughing.
