I really did learn something new this week.
No, no… not during the VP debate.
No, no… not during my first kindergarten tour which I promptly forgot about and never attended. Scratch that school off the potential schools list.
No, no… not during MSNBC’s Morning Joe. By the way, Jessica Ryan was really the only one who jumped on the Joe Scarborough hunky bandwagon with me. Although Calikim at least gave me a lukewarm “sort of hot.” But I’m thinking Calikim just sort of pitied me for my pathetic crush.
Hmm… maybe you all don’t consider morning news an aphrodisiac?
Anyway, here’s what I learned…
It really IS possible to step in your own kid’s poop.
Right there at the playground, Miss Summer needed to be changed. Just a routine diaper changing on a park bench. Nothing out of the ordinary there. Except somehow, during the changing process, some of what I’d just carefully cleaned up, slipped out from the diaper and onto the rubberized turf.
I did not notice.
And then I inadvertently stepped in it.
I STILL did not notice.
And then I mashed my foot into it again.
At which point, my husband pointed out what was going on.
Seriously, crap all over my cute shoe.
And earlier that morning 4 year-old Dylan told me that she likes to eat everything she finds on her face… sleepies in the corner of her eyes, snot from her nose, pretty much anything she can hunt down between her forehead and her chin.
So let me understand this exactly – the kid won’t touch a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. But eye crust? Mmmm. How insanely, ridiculously gross.
The unexpected bonus? The Biden/Palin debate doesn’t seem so hard to stomach after all.
