LilSugar Community: Poo, the Great Equalizer

This post was submitted by Tiffany Carboni in The Mommy Club group over in the LilSugar Community.
Matty was a woman of many distinguished titles. After graduating high school as an honors student, she went on to complete her master’s degree a semester ahead of schedule. She was her class valedictorian and made a brilliant speech that was revered by her esteemed professors and mentors.

Her career accomplishments were astounding. By the age of 25, she climbed up to a management position at a prestigious tech firm and became the company’s director by age 29. She and her husband were invited to every party on the circuit. She was a household name in her industry and everyone tried to woo her to competing companies offering her ungodly amounts of money. Her net worth at the age of 32 was mind-blowing, but she was missing something from her life—a family.

When she got pregnant, her company’s CEO smiled politely and congratulated her. He knew. Her work friends rejoiced for her happiness but with an undeniable undertone of glumness. They knew. Her jealous colleagues smiled with spiteful delight. They knew.

For the next few months, Matty tried to convince everyone that nothing would change after she returned from maternity leave. She was convinced of it herself. Even on the day her water broke, during an important client meeting, Matty hurriedly waddled out the door apologizing for the wet leather seat but assuring everyone that she’d be back in six weeks ready to go with the project.

She had no idea what the next 48 hours, let alone the next few years, would hold for her. The answer she found out was a whole lot of poo. To finish this post, click here.

In response to those who may not believe that I (yes, it was really me who ate the poo) didn't do a proper sniff test, let me ask you...If you were offered what looked like a godsend of sweet deliciousness that was about to slide off your sleeve, would you ask questions or dive in?

I pretty much never believe anyone who says they "accidentally" ate poop. Poop has such a horrendous and strong smell the minute it gets anywhere near you that I don't believe you can pop it in your mouth before you smell it.
