Peed his head

October 27, 2011

My baby peed on his own head. On my watch. Does that make me a bad mommy? Granted it was unintentional. And it happened during a 4:30am-ish diaper change. Oh, and i may have giggled aloud. Those peepee teepees do NOT work. Excuses?

These and other, more serious questions, plague me. I’m pretty sure my sweet boy won’t end up in therapy for accidentally, but very naturally, peeing on himself at 5 weeks of age. But other “mistakes” I make later could send him straight to the couch.

When I think of the potential trials and tribulations of raising a child today, the teenage years scare me most. I know how difficult I was, and I was a pretty good kid. Navigating teenage waters for a parent requires much delicacy, endurance, and much more than I can even fathom right now. Vodka, I assume, will be part of the mix.

But I can’t get ahead of myself and must continue to live in and enjoy the moment. For now, that includes waiting on his first true smile and stealing kisses every chance I get. And for those things I am thankful.

    Ella and I had a middle of the night poop explosion when she was only 2-3 weeks old. I entered it in a 50-word or less contest for some unremembered brand of laundry detergent and didn’t win. But it was funny and I laughed too because it didn’t seem right to cry and turn it into a bad thing.
