It’s true of all of us mothers. The moment I became a mom, I was initiated into an elite group of people who deal with some of the grossest stuff in the world. Being a mom could definitely have its own episode on Dirty Jobs.
I remember when my daughter was about six months old and I was changing her diaper on my lap in the front seat of our car. (Don’t ask me why — okay, we were in downtown Chicago and there was really no other option. Really.)
When I lifted her legs to slide the clean diaper under her bum, you guessed it — projectile baby poop — right into my face! Seriously, so disgusting. But, as a mom, you deal with it, clean up, and move on.
Somehow though, as babies grow into toddlers, things advance to an even more disgusting level because they do gross things willingly, even intentionally, to themselves.
I’m pretty sure the projectile pooping, though very gross, was unintentional. My son’s fascination with his own poop, well that’s another story.
Here are seven of the most disgusting habits of our favorite little people.
