Don't Judge Me!

B used to get terrible ear infections as an infant, which meant I had to administer terrible ear infection medication. I don't remember what kind of medication I was giving B this particular day, but I do remember it was clear. Anyhow, about 2 minutes after I had given it to him he spit up a bit. Now the bottle clearly stated to "FINISH THE ENTIRE BOTTLE". I couldn't tell whether or not he had spit up any of the medicine since it was clear and so was his spit up. (In retrospect he probably just spit out drool) I was a new young mother and wanted my baby to get what he needed. So without thinking twice I STUCK MY FINGER IN HIS SPIT UP AND TASTED IT TO MAKE SURE IT DIDN'T TASTE LIKE MEDICINE. Of course, as it turns out, it did not taste like medicine.

I'm grossing, but not judging:}
I am so late getting to everyone to thank them for visiting me on Monday BAWT. I has so much fun, but getting these notes written is a bear. Actually, it is taking so long because I have to stop and read each blog as I go.
Sorry to be late, but my thanks are heartfelt and I hope you find time to return.

well.... ewwww is right but as a mom of four, it is amazing the things we will do for our children. I've been completely covered in watery poop and throw up and although it was totally stinky and yucky, I had to do what I had to do and get him, me, the bed, the floor without acting like it was the end of the world. I feel your pain. I love your blog by the way.

@ terie: You know, there should be a book titled 'A Mom's Guide to Biohazards: How to clean up blood, diarrhea, vomit, urine, and mucous With a Smile!'
Seriously, that book would be flying off the shelves!

Gross...but I would probably do it too. But I currently have no children, so I'm just guessing.

I really like your blog...I'm subscribing!
