Insert dry heave here.

There are times, as a mom, when I feel like I'm doing a pretty great job. Like earlier today, when I sat Lucy down to a lunch of homemade whole-wheat pita bread, fresh from the garden tomatoes, and organic mozzerella cheese. Those moments make me feel pretty darn good.

But then I have moments like I did a few minutes ago, when I look up from the computer and LUCY IS EATING HER OWN POOP. POOP, people. Straight from the diaper. There are no words. I have no words.

Lucy, however, summed it up quite nicely with an emphatic yet understated "GOES". (gross, to those of you who don't speak Lucy).

Yes. Goes, indeed.

Ah me. Lucky you. At least you know you put good stuff in there to start. And now she has that trick out of her system (bad pun not intended) so she wont try it at someone else's house.

Let's now go play with Camille.

I'm so sorry for your poor daughter's unfortunate diet today, but you just gave me a great laugh!

I know it's gross, but I still laughed. I'm sure that day is coming for me!

HAHAHAHA - I know I shouldn't laugh but it makes me feel so good to know that I'm not the only parent with kid/poop problems. BTW - she is absolutely adorable!

At least it was her own so she won't get sick. She and Stormy now have something in common.

That is my most favorite Shauna moment in my life. I am laughing so hard right now. I am so thankful to be back online now. Seriously, hilarious. Only I can laugh as hard as you at it....and one day, you will laugh about it. Hi-freakin-larious.
