Joys of Motherhood

I took the kids to a dentist appointment, yesterday. On the way there, Max fell asleep. When we got there, I got him out of the car with some difficulty (He is getting big!) and juggled a bunch of stuff as I walked into the dentist office. Regular mother stuff, right. Right, until I sat down with him and waited for the kids to finish with their cleanings. At that precise time Max decided to release the pressure in his bladder and I got a very yucky warm, wet sensation that went all down my legs and into the seat of my pants. Max was wearing a sweatsuit where you couldn't even tell he had gone, but I looked like I had released a whole days worth on myself. A kind lady next to me went and got me paper towels, but I couldn't clean up much with those- especially with Max still completely out. I sat in that for another 15 minutes as the kids finished with their cleanings. Then I had Emma walk very close behind me and I used my purse and Max to shield the front. Of course, that day was the busiest I have ever seen in that office! Ah motherhood! What a Joy!

That is hilarious...to me of course because I wasn't the one that was peed on. So sorry about that. :) This is a memory that should be on that In the Motherhood show.

HILARIOUS...again, sorry!

We always said that you aren't a parent until you have cleaned up puke and been peed on. Welcome to motherhood. your Mom

And just think in your job you can experience both with complete strangers. That makes you a nurse.

Oh my gosh, how frustrating. And I'm so laughing b/c I know the feeling that it is more trouble to reschedule teeth cleanings for your kids enough to sit in Max's urine in a public place for 15 minutes! Poor thing!!! Where is the thanks & appreciation for what moms go through???? At least it's now published on your blog, hopefully there for your kids to read when they're older and have healthy teeth thanks to you! :)

I was in the Library yesterday and Jacob crawled out of his pants. I let him run around while I tried not as hard as I could have to catch him. I enjoyed seeing the smiles on older peoples faces. I think I helped them enjoy their own memories of days gone by. Ah, to be young again.
