You Know You're a Mother When: Poop on Your Arm

You Know You're a Mother When: Poop on Your Arm

Pressed for time, I rushed home from work to switch my bag for a purse and head out for an interview. But in between the shuffling, my two-year-old, who is potty training, tore off his diaper and dashed in the bathroom. "I did it!" he exclaimed, before I heard the toilet paper roll, the sound of a flush and the rush of faucet water. He ran in the room and jumped up on me, his bare bottom resting on my arm as we did the dance of joy down the hallway. Then, I put him in a fresh diaper and he was off.

Moments later, I glanced toward my forearm and realized that he hadn't peed or perfected wiping. Within two seconds, the sink was filled with soapy bubbles and my arms were submerged. A quick mom fix before I headed out the door. Once you have kids, you don't freak out about bodily fluids — you just figure out the quickest way to clean up the mess.

Yep I've gotten poop on my arm too. Sure don't miss diaper blow-outs. Can't count how many times my son has peed on me either. Goes with the territory. I just change my clothes, clean up and get on with it. :)

I'm not a mom, but have taken care of 6 kids and watched them grow so body fluids were not a problem. There were too many kids to watch to worry about something so easy to wash off.

Bodily fluids never really grossed me out anyway. Just wash up.

"Once you have kids, you don't freak out about bodily fluids — you just figure out the quickest way to clean up the mess." LOL, soooo true (as long as they're your own child's). People get grossed out about spit up or when you're changing your tiny baby & they pee on you, but that's all par for the course when you're a mom.
