Two weeks ago I got thrown up on twice… and what’s sad about that is the first time I didn’t even notice.
Last week someone (thanks Joa!) pointed out that the back of my hoodie was covered in baby spit-up. Spit-up, I might add, that was old, clearly had been there for several weeks and pretty much covered my whole back. Like a car that had been parked under a street-lamp near the beach, covered in Seagull poo. COVERED.
This past weekend, V and I were out shopping when I noticed his little face was covered in peas. The peas he had had for lunch, which apparently I hadn’t wiped up as efficiently as I thought I had. Covered in peas, out shopping with Mummy.
And then I noticed that I was also covered in peas, all over my shorts (shorts that I now fit into, 10 months post-baby hurray!!!!!) and some smears on my hands and arms.
What on earth was I doing when I was feeding him? And how did I not notice?
Regardless, I didn’t even care. Peas on my shorts, don’t care.
Smeared all over me? Also don’t care.
Spit-up all over me? Just rub it in….. no-one will notice, especially if the shirt has a pattern on it.
I know you mums know what I am talking about.
Cheers to us who dare to venture out, foodstained and all and don’t care. Hurray for stains on our pants, face and caked food on our hair!
Yay permanent formula stains on our bras! And hurray for sticky spots on our arms and feet.
