Hope that you all are well,
Am posting my second article for the week! Whoop-whoop!!
That being said, I thought it would be fun to mention all the things that I never thought I would do… until I became a mom.
Let the fun begin… 🙂
- Throw a towel over peed on sheets & continue sleeping.
Eeeuw! Now for those who don’t know me, I am, WAS, super OCD in my past life. A place for everything & everything in its place were my words to live by; not to mention that I had a terrible gag reflex for all things gross.
The first time Cupcake used me as target practice was at 3am in the morning, I jumped up so fast and changed bedding, then spent forever to get him back to sleep. I have since realized that in my futile attempt to hold on to my OCD I will rather hold onto my sanity and sleep on
2. Get pooped on and not die.
Here we refer back to my previous OCD state, pre-mommy I would probably have died at the sight of someone elses poop on me, let alone having poop on my hands.
These days I have mastered the art of the ninja nappy change to avoid such accidents and a mini death.
3. Get vomited on and not die.
Same as previous BUT my Cupcake had reflux (yay!) which meant he was constantly throwing up all over me, I actually got to a point that I have now accepted that I am the human Kleenex.
4. Not caring about “everything being in it’s place”
So, remember what I said about “A place for everything & everything in its place?”, that is now no longer relevant. Not saying my house is a dump, not at all, but the days of me scuffling about to get everything in order are long over. Instead I now ensure that my house is clean by way of organized chaos.
5. Eating regurgitated food
Hmm… seems like my OCD is quite the common denominator in this article, anyhow, lets put this into perspective. I only eat from my plate, I don’t believe in the 5 sec rule (5 microseconds are too long), if it looks weird I won’t eat it, if it smells weird then no and if it has a weird texture then HELL NO!
So, as you can see I am the world pickiest eater, so the thought of eating something that someone has chewed on and then spat out would have me running to the hills pre-mom.
Cupcake has discovered that he likes to share his chewed on rice cakes with me & I (for fear of having that same rice cake end up in his hair and everywhere) now eat it happily along with him.
6. Sing & Dance like no ones watching
You might be reading this and thinking, “ah, that’s not so bad”, but to me it was something that I would never do. Superman only started to hear me sing when I thought Cupcake would enjoy lullabies and nursery rhymes. Turns out, he loves it! I’m definitely no Ariane Grande but hey, Cupcake loves my singing and dancing so I’m going to keep my favourite fan happy!
7. Sniff a Butt
Yes ladies, you read correctly, this mommy who gets physically upset at people farting, now has no issue in sniffing Cupcakes butt to ensure that he is not wearing a dirty nappy,lol. Gold star for me!
8. And lastly, jump with joy when Cupcake breaks wind!
Like I said, I seriously get physically upset at people who are uncouth, burping/ farting is just plain gross and should not be done ever. At this Superman laughs and says but I also do it, my simple reply is that fairies come and take it away into the wind (which is such a lie, I do all those things when his not home,shhhh…)
Cupcakes winds however are like music to my ears, because it means he will have a restful sleep without any niggling.
Well there you have it, hope you moms enjoyed my mini list,
Till next time 😉
