Remember All the Gross Things We did for Our Babies... Ugg

10 Disgusting Things Only Moms Do

1. Wipe snot with your bare hands. Proceed to wipe said snot onto your pants. What are you to do if your child blows snot and you don’t have a tissue?

2. Smell things to determine what they are. Is that poop? Did you just throw up? There’s only one way to tell…

3. Stick your hand in the toilet. Those pacifiers aren’t going to retrieve themselves.

4. Smell someones butt. The easiest way to determine if someone has soiled a diaper is to shove your face up against it and take a deep breath. Yep, that’s poop.

5. Wear baby spit-up with no intentions of changing. Yeah, I know I have spit-up on the front of my t-shirt – I can smell it, too. But what’s the point of changing when I’m going to be spit on again in 20 minutes?

6. Pick someone else’s nose. “Let me get your booger” is a phrase commonly heard at my house. I see them there and I just have to get them. Doesn’t gross me out in the least.

7. Allow your kids throw up on you. One time Brady got sick, started throwing up all over me and I just sat there and held him while he did it. I quickly moved into the bathtub before the second round hit but never once did I push him away from me. He needed to feel comforted much more than I needed fresh clothes. All moms do it. I’ve even known a few to catch it in their hands.

8. Investigate poop. The color, the amount, the texture… these things tell us a lot about our kids bellies. It also usually gives us too much insight into their last meal.

9. Clean their face with your spit. A good spit shine is just as good as a wet wipe.

10. Catch their unwanted, chewed up food in your hands. “Eww I don’t like this!” and then they lean over and spit the food into your hand before you have a chance to hand them a napkin. Why they feel like this, and not their plate, is the best option, I don’t know.

Tell me…what gross thing have you done as a parent?

    Good post. Yes for the love of a kind mother or grandma.
I have 3 grand babies. And though just a grandma now have had it all that you mentioned. Including cleaning up from a large dog in the car that got the runs. But went through all this with our 2 girls and a boy. Now with our son kids, and I do infant nursery at church 1 to 2 times a month.
Yet I know and have met some very uncaring people as well.

    Jill, I think we did the exact same things to our kids except the throw up. I actually never had full on throw up from either of my girls. But watch out there'll be grandkids someday and then I'll get it!! Of course too when the babies had a runny nose I was always out of tissues and we were in public somewhere. Which is worse your baby with a runny nose like you don't care or caked on snot on your pants? LOL I remember going to work with a crusty shoulder when my girls were babies because I'd feed and burp them before I took them to the sitter and never took the time to change my shirt. Thank goodness it was casual clothes. It's amazing what we do for our children!! Even now that they are adults. LOL but of course it's not the same things. HA!!

Note for Eva regarding dirty diapers, I don't know where you live but out here you see or step on dirty diapers in store parking lots, restaurant parking lots!!! Really???!!!! You can't walk to the trash can or you can't carry an empty grocery bag with you to put it in till you can toss it properly??!!!!

    I think I smell my cat's butt when I smell something like s-h-i-t hanging there in their fur!

I think this was a great blog, and covered everything we do with our babies. Sounds like you are getting fed up, but there's nothing you can do about it. I wonder if people even put messy diapers into there diaper bag when there isn't anywhere to throw it out?

Happy in the Lord

Monday, May 26, 2014

Happy in the Lord today! There is no other feeling like it. I was just Blessed with forty dollars. I blessed two people this month and it has been return unto me!! Isn't that Wonderful.. I give and expect nothing in return, yet God is such a loving God. He takes such good care of me.
e Praise and Glorify Him in the Highest.

I just wish everyone could feel the joy that I am feeling today, it is so over whelming. To know for sure that I am going to be with Jesus when I leave this earth. Nothing matters except being with Him. Even death is possible to come to terms with once you have truly accepted Jesus as your Savior, His Spirit is so over whelmingly Beautiful and peaceful.

Mother Teresa "Quotes"

Friday, May 16, 2014

"People are often unreasonable and selfcentered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are Honest, people may cheat you. Be Honest anyway.
If you find Happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best that you have and it may never be good enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between You and God. It is never between you and them anyway."

    these lessons are very true!
yet sometimes you wish you could just give them a piece of your mind, and hope it impacts them, yet it never solves anything.
Only God can judge you for he knows your heart.
Throwing sticks and stones is a form of abusive behavior, and is like bulling.

Daily Bible Reading

Titus 1:1-16

Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the sake of the faith of God's elect and the knowledge of the truth that is in accordance with godliness, in the hope of eternal life that God, who never lies, promised before the ages began—in due time he revealed his word through the proclamation with which I have been entrusted by the command of God our Savior,
To Titus, my loyal child in the faith we share:
Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.

Titus in Crete

I left you behind in Crete for this reason, so that you should put in order what remained to be done, and should appoint elders in every town, as I directed you: someone who is blameless, married only once, whose children are believers, not accused of debauchery and not rebellious. For a bishop, as God's steward, must be blameless; he must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or addicted to wine or violent or greedy for gain; but he must be hospitable, a lover of goodness, prudent, upright, devout, and self-controlled. He must have a firm grasp of the word that is trustworthy in accordance with the teaching, so that he may be able both to preach with sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict it.
There are also many rebellious people, idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision; they must be silenced, since they are upsetting whole families by teaching for sordid gain what it is not right to teach. It was one of them, their very own prophet, who said,
“Cretans are always liars, vicious brutes, lazy gluttons.”

That testimony is true. For this reason rebuke them sharply, so that they may become sound in the faith, not paying attention to Jewish myths or to commandments of those who reject the truth. To the pure all things are pure, but to the corrupt and unbelieving nothing is pure. Their very minds and consciences are corrupted. They profess to know God, but they deny him by their actions. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work.

For these verses hold true to me and I try my best to live as God would have me to live by them. I am a simple woman of this time and when I read God's Holy word I try to make sure as to what version of the Bible that I am reading to cross reference it with several others. Before passing it on. I truly hope you enjoy the reading.

    I love to study the word of God. I have worked in past with King James Life Application Study Bible; Dakes, and Thompson Chain Reference Bible.
At this time I have been looking at Revelation.
God's word is truth and I have found so much encouragement and wisdom as I have studied Holy Scriptures.

The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Luke 18:9-14
The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector

He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and regarded others with contempt: “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, was praying thus, ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people: thieves, rogues, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of all my income.’ But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even look up to heaven, but was beating his breast and saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his home justified rather than the other; for all who exalt themselves will be humbled, but all who humble themselves will be exalted.”

    I also like this parable. we are taught many lessons to become humble, and release our control. Once you do this it is amazing how your guilt is lifted, and you feel washed. What an amazing God we have! eva
