We headed out to play group, patted some sweet baby animals, had our faces painted and ate fresh fruit. all good.
We went to the shops and had a smoothie. flippin excellent.
We came home, had lunch and a little play. great. wonderful. fabulous.
The Lady Baby put herself to sleep in her cot while I gave the Young Man a cup of milk and tucked him into bed. All was quiet. I was ready for the pillow, baby. all. ready.
'mum, mummy, mummmmm- come and have a look. I'm playing a little game'
You know what I found don't you!? Mmm yes, you're right. Every parents worst nightmare. The poo smear. The bloody poo smear. You know, it was the one thing I thought Zeph would never do. How very wrong I was. He smeared that sucker good.
I totally lost my cool. Totally.
Today, I have felt a little less that proud of my parenting prowess than I would have liked.
