In recent days I’ve developed some weird habits that I definitely didn’t have before I became a mom (I promise). These have become the norm for me now and I’m sure many of my mom friends will agree. BUT we have to admit, through the eyes of an outsider, they are hella weird! (3 out 5 of these are pretty disgusting too – you have been warned!)
- “Sniff the Bum Test”
I know I’m not the only mom that does this, but why do we think its ok to lift our baby’s bum to our face to check if they pooped?!
Story time: We were at Wal-Mart the other day and sniff sniff… I smelt something funky… there I went, picking Aria up in the middle of the store, to sniff her bum. It was like a scene out of The Lion King! There has to be a more discrete way to check for poop. Anyone? Anyone?
- Talk About Poop
Since we’re on the topic of poop, WHY can I not stop thinking and talking about my baby’s poop?! Too much poop? We have a problem. Not enough poop? We have a problem. No poop at all? This calls for a group discussion on the Mommy Forum Board, where we will discuss her diet from the past week! Phew…I am pooped.
- Search For Boogies
How many of you go digging for gold in your baby’s nose? Don’t be ashamed, I feel you. Sometimes I feel like when HER nose is clean, it makes ME breathe easier.
- Clean EVERYTHING With Baby Wipes
This one I wouldn’t have minded adopting earlier. Who needs Windex when you have baby wipes!? Who needs sanitizer when you have baby wipes?! Who needs face wash when you have baby wipes?! Who needs a bath when you have baby wipes?! Ok I went too far…
- Paparazzi My Baby
“Her dress is so cute! GET THE CAMERA!” “She’s standing up! GET THE CAMERA!” “She BLINKED! GET THE CAMERA!” The photo roll on my phone is filled with every second of Aria’s life; I wouldn’t have it any other way, but the poor girl cant catch a break!
Do you do any of these things, or is it just me? Do you have any weird mom habits of your own? Let me know in the comments down below, I would LOVE to know I’m not the only one!
Hugs and Kisses to all!
