10 Disgusting, Hilarious & Weird Facts About Motherhood: The Early Years

By Selena Mae |

Nuzzle, nuzzle....PUKE! Lovvvvve.

If you’re a first timer (momma), be forewarned.

It’s not all turkish delight, magical wonders, sunshine and rainbows. But mostly, it is.

Even with all of it’s daily drama, the light; it pours in. That’s how most of us make it. Pure baby magic. They have it, they ooze it and have you coming back for more.

Motherhood is definitely not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach. Or maybe it is – motherhood has a way of strengthening one’s soul and making you a better person. Epic melt-downs, sleepless nights, poonami’s and all. Either way, whether you are in the thick of it, or caressing your baby bump daydreaming of your foray into it, behold the truth!

10 Disgusting, Hilarious & Weird Facts About Motherhood

Nose Picker Extraordinaire

This is no news flash, but still. It's pretty dang disgusting, no? I'll admit I have a slight obsession with keeping my babies' noses clean. I usually try to use a wipe for the job, but sometimes one just has to bare finger it and run looking for a kleenex. Truth.

    This is perfect and true! We fondly refer to our poonami’s as “poo-plosions.” I think that you also forgot to mention when it comes to this stuff it seems the big tough daddy’s turn into teeny tiny wittle babies themselves and can’t hack the nastiness! This was hilarious! :)

  2. Jen says:

    So true, and @Kendra is right you have no idea how lucky you are to have a daddy who can deal with the messes without making one themselves

    1. Selena Mae says:

      Thanks ladies! I think we all need a good chuckle about this sort of stuff on the regular, or else we could find ourselves seriously depleted.

      And my dear friend Jennifer….have you seriously not met my bull in a china shop man? Sure he can deal with the poonamin’s, as he SHOULD. But not making a mess himself? PHHHHT!

  3. Meg says:

    Agreed! And I still obsess over keeping my baby’s nose clean.

  4. emma says:

    I love this! And I love your cute glasses :)

    I laughed so hard at the poonamis .. I have an 8 week old and we had to switch diapers because it seemed that one brand couldn’t handle his poop even when he was upright! I’m bf’ing exclusively so it’s more watery then the others but I hate when it’s in the middle of the night, as I’m nursing and It’s like an EXPLOSION.. then warm then all over your hand.. LMAO.. I laugh now but I’m pretty bummed at night.. I just want to sleep!! lol

    “Get a better fetish ya nasty toe licker!” hehehhe…funny.

  9. Deborah says:

    I remember, just the other day, my daughter had pooed, and because I didn’t get to her right away, I didn’t realize she had pooed and I was trying to clean the kitchen, I came to discover that she had painted herself in it. I thought it was something else, but realized, after it was over my hands, what it was. So, I gave her a bath and had to wash her cover in her high chair out.
