I am on kid number two. I have heard that things change when the second one comes. Word on the street is you mellow out a bit. I didn’t thing this would be true for me. I was uber neurotic with my first and still am just a tad. I noticed during my second pregnancy I favored donuts over my almost vegetarian diet with my first kid. That should have been a sign.
Today my daughter had a sticky, gooey booger in her nose. She was also mooing because she was hungry. I put her on my lap to nurse her while I picked her nose. That booger was much larger than it appeared and was pretty darn gross. I looked around and noticed I had no tissues, wipes, or anything appropriate for me to put a booger on. I didn’t even think twice, I wiped said booger on my $200 jeans and went back to making phone calls. I had a bowl of cherries on my desk and I was hungry so with my daughter still on my lap and booger on my jeans I grabbed a few cherries and enjoyed. After cherry #3 I realized that I had not washed my hands. I am now enjoying cherries with booger and breastmilk essence on them. Oh how the mighty have fallen! All I could do is laugh lololol.
There is something about having the stick out of your proverbial arse that feels amazing! I actually stress less now that everything does not has to be perfect. I even let my dirty 7 year old kiss his sister when he comes home from school. Imagine that duffel bag of germs on him!
