Admired His Poop

Have you ever had a child scream for you to come into the bathroom, only for you to arrive and find out they really want you to check out their ginormous poop? Yeah, me neither. But it totally happened to someone I know.

Yes we moms do a lot of things for our children out of love.

The shirt/tissue.. wipe on the cuff and fold down or lift the shirt and wipe. In a pinch with no kleenex.

You forgot - (for kids in at least 5th grade) - popping their zits.

I caught my son's vomit....in a restraunt....at a part for my husban's co-worker and just about EVERYONE from his office was there and saw my son get sick.  Talk about a party (and appetite) killer!

okay, I'm with everyone on the sucking snot. NO WAY!  Have scooped poop and pretty much all the above, except for dead bugs in laundry. Just hasn't happened yet.  Head lice can be avoided if parents would  put some kind of gel, mouse or hair spray in their children's hair before they go to school. The lice doesn't like it.

not sure i can handle the catching puke thing but just tonight my 15 month old (first child) got out of the shower and was running around with the towel when he started making his poop face so i plopped him on the toilet, he refused so i went and got a diaper. i asked him to come here and he did, he walked up to me, said thank you and handed me his poop. that tops my list so far

Enemas for my daughter, removing and washing socks that smelled like rotting meat and a plate of maggotty perogies that a relatives kid left under his bed in August during a heatwave (different occasions) when he was living with me.
