and SPIT changes it all


Describe how motherhood has changed you

One word:

Spit

Yep, that's right.
Spit

Me (before motherhood) :
"I will N---E---VER clean my child's face with SPIT."

"N-EEE-VER!"

EWWW!

&
"GROSS!"
&
"NOPE, NOT GONNA DO IT."

Me (during motherhood) :

"Uh-Oh, Here comes Prissy McKPrissy-son and her 2 annoyingly perfect children."
"Kids....Quick! Come here and let me wipe away last night's leftovers."
"Let me grab a Wet-One."

Oh, that's right...
I am one of THOSE MOMS.
Ya know, one of THOSE MOMS that do not carry stuff like that.

"What to do ....What to do.....She will be over here any minute."

1..2..3..

Spit meet face.

I've only done this once.
Ok, MAYBE three times.
BUT
The last two times really didn't count.
I used the kid's spit.
Yep, I am clever like that.

I am not a mom yet... I'm still subscribing to the "I WILL NEVER WIPE MY KIDS FACE WITH SPIT" school of thought...

However, I will spit directly onto my boyfriends face, so it's really anyone's guess...

Yes, there is a whole list of, I will never do's until you become a mom. By the way I am the mom with the wipes that never bothers using them so my kids have messy faces anyway

Somehow it makes it better when you're using the kid's own spit.

Spit. Yeah, I hear ya. I also said I'd never sniff my kid's butt to see if her diaper was dirty.

I lied.

Great post!

I always thought it was disgusting how my mother licked her finger and wiped off my face when I was a kid. Now I don't like to do it with my girls but if it needs to be done then so be it....Great blog:) Enjoy the day!!!

Eww, that's sick! I think those Wet One wipes are a good idea! It did make for a funny post though!

Here's the link to my "How Motherhood Has Changed me" post (probably not what you'd expect) http://zemeks.blogspot.com/2009/10/how-motherhood-changed-me-writers.html

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

OMG! I thought the same thing when I was a kid. Guess what? I've done the spit meets the face thing way too many times and my daughter is only 3yo!

You know animals clean each other in this manner all the time.

That being said *I* will NEVER do that to my kids...yes, I am THAT mom.

Okay that's a lie. I spit clean my own car for God sakes.
