A Post on Bodily Functions That Doesn't Reference CM

You've been warned.  Yes, I've haven't had much time to blog lately, and yes, this is the post I choose to come back with.  Forgive the quick takes style...

1. Today I was reminded why I am glad we don't have "grown up" furniture yet when Charlie blew his nose on my couch.  Not even wiped, blew.  You read that right.

2. Surprisingly, today, my son and I had a really enjoyable game playing catch with the football, while he was attempting a bowel movement.

3. Charlie has decided to be a baby and spit his milk up like AJ. It consists of taking a drink and spitting the milk from his mouth down the front of his shirt or on his plate of food. Nice.

4. The kids' bodily functions are plenty so I was not happy to see that I, myself, am leaking breastmilk. Um, that's a new one. And long story short our toilet overflowed at 6am a few days ago so that was good times.

5. About two seconds before I set down to write this I narrowly missed being spit up into my open mouth.

6. I discovered last week why younger infants are not put up on adults' shoulders.  I was the recipient of being spit up in the hair.

7. AJ managed the grand feat last week of pooping on my leg and ruining my favorite pj pants (these go back to 2006 b/c I wore them to recovery from my laporoscopy).  When I stood up, somehow there was enough liquid for it to come off my pants and form a puddle on the floor.  It was as if there was not even a diaper on him.  When I checked to change him, I was amazed to see only a small streak-evidently it wasn't interested in sticking around and just made a brief appearance in the diaper before getting the heck out of dodge.

8. Consistent with the theme of the weak, AJ had a bowel movement while sitting on my lap while I am writing this.  It came out the front of the diaper ???? all over his new outfit and I had to stop writing to take care of it.

Well, I wasn't sure I'd get to seven, but then again I have always been an overachiever.  Especially when it comes to bodily functions.  Just kidding..  Honestly, though, I don't mind any of it and wouldn't trade it for the world.  This is my life. :)

Oh, this made me laugh. I've had quite a few of the same bodily functions happen to me with my boys. I am wondering if little girls are the same way.

Well, at least your husband didn't make the bodily function 8 takes.

This makes me want to puke! Yet I hear that when it is your own baby's poop, it's not as disgusting! haha. Yuck!
