2 years ago I had a 2 month old baby girl. I asked everyone to wash their hands before holding her. I cringed when someone wore perfume and the noxious fumes were left on my baby's clothing. I washed every single toy and article of clothing she received before letting them touch her skin. I was absolutely mortified when my mother let her have a sip of restaurant water from a straw at 6 months old, because who knows where that ice had been!
Today.. I was nursing my 6 month old boy when the now 2 year old girl let me know that she had to go poopoo. I told her to go ahead. She danced around a little and I encouraged her a few more times to get going to the toilet. Once she got there she let me know that she didn't quite make it to the toilet and some had landed on the floor. I put the boy down on the bedroom floor (oh my!) and went to assist the girl. I poked my head back into the room to check on the boy. He had crawled himself over to my flip flop shoes and was chewing on one. I simply removed it and WIPED OFF MY SHOE.
My how far I've come.
