WARNING! Gross Post Ahead!

February 4, 2014

If this is your first time reading this blog, you probably want to start in a different area because THIS post will make you wish you hadn’t come here.  It also might make you a little nauseous. And shuddery.  So I would suggest that you start reading here or here.  You’ll thank me. Seriously.


If you are not a mother, or you have weirdly clean and hygienic children, or you are easily grossed out by gross things that are gross, read no further. Go read a blog by a mom who has kids whose clothes always match and who never do anything gross. (And good luck with that.)

Because THIS post could win an award for being gross AND may earn me a call from concerned and possibly horrified, grossed-out friends and family. Who think it’s gross.

(I’m also going for a record for how many times I can use the word “gross” in a post. Can you tell?)


Three-Year-Old, who is in the process of potty-training, gave us all a collective shudder this afternoon.

And not in a good way.

She was sitting on the potty and had made a deposit, if you catch my drift. She was being supervised by a sibling who wouldn’t have had any reason to think that letting her eat a pretzel stick on said potty would be cause for any kind of restriction or alarm. I probably would’ve let her do the same thing when I was her age. This turned out to be a bad thing, however.

Because, well, she accidentally dropped it.

And not on the floor.

Also? She fetched it. From the potty with the deposits in it.

Also also? Um…….. She ate it.


Again, in case you passed out there for a second like I did when I heard the story……

She. Ate. It.

And that, my friends, is the grossest thing any kid of mine has ever done.

That I know of.

If you decide, after reading this, to delete this blog from your feed reader, I won’t hate you or even blame you. I’d probably do the same thing.

But then I’d reconsider.

Because a mom who actually admits this kind of thing happens in her house, has GOT to be a WAY worse mom than I am.

And I would need and relish that knowledge on bad days when I’m feeling like the worst mom in the world.

I would just remember that horrible mom whose kid ate her snack out of the poopy toilet.

You’re welcome.

Also?  Thank you to those of you who told me a gross story or two from your house to make me feel better about the stories that happen in THIS house.  It’s a good feeling to know we’re not as weird as I thought.

    She ate it *and* enjoyed it? 🙂 I have to say that has not happened to me…yet!
