“OMG! OMG! PEE! There’s PEE on my FACE!” That sentence was all that I could repeat to my friend on the phone. I was stunned. That was a moment I was never prepared for as a mom.
About 2 minutes earlier, I was doing a little cleaning in the bathroom when I noticed that it was eerily quiet in LoveBug’s room. A different kind of quiet. Mom’s have an innate sort of “spidy sense” that tells us when our kids are getting into something that they shouldn’t. As I peek around the corner, I see LoveBug putting crayons in his potty. Now, he has never been one to play with pee so I was quite surprised. After telling him that we don’t touch pee, I picked him up and that’s when it happened. A tiny, cold, wet hand touched my arm. My brain immediately sounded the alarm. PEE! PEE! There’s pee on me! Eject the child! No don’t eject the child! Find baby wipes! Eww! As I look down at my arm in disgust, he TOUCHES MY FACE! Noooooooooo! I shrieked, “UGGGH!” Seeing that I am upset, and being the sensitive child that he is, he got upset too. I ended up comforting him although he’s the one that put pee on me! Sigh, I digress.
I got him in the bath and cleaned my face. After splashing around for bit, he peed in the tub. What gives? He jumped up, practically leaping onto my lap, and got my clothes soaking wet. “Is this really happening? And all before 9 a.m.?” I thought. We walk back into his room and he peed on the floor. You have got to be kidding me. How much freaking water did I give this boy? Sidebar: That one was my fault because I accidentally left his potty downstairs. He yelled, “pee-pee-pee-pee!” while doing the pee dance. I ran downstairs to get the potty, but tripped over a laundry basket and stepped on some small blocks. He held it as long as he could. I didn’t make it back in time. I certainly have cleaned up a lot of pee in the last few months. Ahhh to be a mommy.
Have any pee pee stories of your own? C’mon I know that I can’t be alone on this one. Comment below!
