M.D. was JUST ABOUT to lunge himself forward into his "crawling" motion when he pushed a little too hard with one arm and flipped himself over. Onto his back. In the grass. No big deal. I rolled him back over...no tears...and he continued to play. Until I noticed it. The brown spot on the back of his head. Was it...?? Oh boy.
Steven and I did a pretty good job of cleaning up the front yard post-winter. The dog's don't actually go out in the front yard when the snow is really deep..so we weren't left with a ton of doo-doo this spring. Whatever was there, however, we did pretty good job of cleaning it up!
So here we were...in the yard, on a beautiful day, and I had to ask the age-old question. Is it dirt? Or is it poop? Okay...usually the question is, Poop or Chocolate, but in this case we had the Dirt or Poop decision to make. There's only one way to definitely decifer between the two. I had to do the smell test.
You know you're a mother when you don't even hesitate to think before smelling a giant brown spot on the back of your child's head. I honestly didn't even think it was gross until I realized it was dirt. Then I had the Baby Mama movie moment where I thought, Oh my god. What if it had been POOP?! I did have my nose essentially buried in the potential poop-spot.
The things you do for your children :) If it's not smelling potential dog poop on their heads, it's cleaning their snotty nose with your shirt sleeve (yeah...there wasn't a tissue or burp rag in sight...), or having them throw up on your head (yes, all over my hair, back of my neck...don't play "airplane" after dinner...). When it doesn't become gross anymore...you know you're a mom.
Happy Tuesday :)
