When you start to thinking about kids, most of us always think we will be the cool parent. The parent that will never drive a mini van or be called a soccer mom, that’s what we thought. One of the first things that I learned when I became a parent was everything, and I mean absolutely everything I thought I knew about being a parent quickly got thrown out the window. To make matters worse, you end up saying things you never thought you would say. It’s like an alien has moved into your brain and implanted your mother or worse, your mother in law.
When my eldest daughter was little, there was definitely a moment where I said something I never thought I would say. Recently separated from my first husband, we were living at my parents’ house. My Aunt Laura was visiting from Savannah, and we were all in the living room while Keiran was “napping.” We were chatting and carrying on when I heard Keiran on the monitor. She was probably a little over a year old at the time, and definitely hadn’t been potty trained yet. As I rose to check on Keiran, Aunt Laura told me not to worry about she would check on her.
Laura had been at Keiran’s birth and she was really excited about her first great niece. That’s why she had been so eager to check on her for me. Laura hadn’t been gone for three seconds when I heard a shrill “OH…..MY………GAWD………” in her distinct southern drawl. Frightened that she found something wrong with Keiran, I raced into the other room. Panicked I flung the door open, and braced myself to see something tragic. As I pushed Laura out of the way, there was Keiran standing there butt ass naked with her diaper flung across the room and her hands covered in poop.
Oh it wasn’t just her hands, it was on her crib, all over her, and lastly all over the WALL. That’s when it left my mouth, that thing I never thought I would say as a parent, “Keiran, you can NOT paint with your poop!” And at that I swiftly, but at arms length, took my poop covered child and headed straight to the bathroom. Had I not been around family, I might’ve taken her out back and hosed her down with the hose because she was COVERED in it!
