really, this might be a tmi. read at your own risk.

i tell M that there are certain moments in my life when i know i need to blog. those are the times when i am so completely caught off guard by something one or more of my children is doing that i'm rendered speechless.

so that happened to me today but even as i write this i'm not sure if it's appropriate to tell you.

is there anything that's too gross for a blog? it's my blog, right?

i'll start typing and see how it feels.

yesterday i was changing K's diaper and he was being silly. "i touch it, mommy! i touch it!!" this is a game he plays that he finds incredibly entertaining. he pretends to try to touch the nastiness while i scramble to change the dirty pants as fast as i can.

i was playing along, as i always do. "oh no! oh no! don't touch it! dirty!" but i admit i was maybe laughing a teeny weeny bit.

the diaper was mostly changed and it was then that let my guard down, glancing briefly to the side for some reason that i can't remember anymore.

and that's when he did it. he landed a finger in the poop.

for a split second our eyes met. i froze, unsure what to do. he paused too, shocked at his success but with a look of sheer delight in his eyes.

and then he popped his finger into his mouth and licked it off.

OMG!!! That is soooo gross and yet hilarious at the same time!
Well, if it makes you feel any better, Owen once peed into his own mouth. But poo is waaaay worse!

When my 11 year old son was about 1 1/2, I went into his room to collect him from his nap. He was standing up in his crib laughing. I said something to the effect of "What's funny!" He showed me his hand and said "Look momma, chocolate!" and then I noticed his face...he had eaten some. Your blog sounds like my life!

Ok. So you know my issues with germs and contamination. It's no secret! I walked in on Ari sitting on the floor with his back to me. When I walked around to the front of him, I noticed his diaper was off and laying in his lap, and he was poking his f-ing poop, then taste testing it! Like it was fondue or something!

Copraphagia: the love of eating poo.

I learned in sex ed class that anything people do that is not harmful to themselves or others should not be frowned upon and should be excepted as a variant of the social norm. However, as it turns out, it turns out that eating poo is actually kind of a bad idea. Seriously, I mean with Hersey's syrup or some marshmallows maybe, but straight?
