Earlier this week I was in the basement with my year and a half old son. He was playing with some toys on the floor, while I was sitting on the couch. His favorite show, Puppy Dog Pals, was on.
For those of you who are unaware, Puppy Dog Pals is a new series on the Disney Channel, and as such they play the same 20 episodes over and over… and over again. Though we have seen each episode more than 1,000 times, I was happy because my favorite one came on, titled, “Polly Wants a Pug.” I love this episode the most because of an annoyingly cute song, my new favorite song, “Bob’s Bird.”
So there I was, relaxing on the couch, half paying attention to Reece; half paying attention to the show; singing the silly song. Reece was playing independently with his toys, which makes me so happy and proud. To make things extra dreamy, I glance over, and Reece started to dance to the song. I love it when he dances; he hasn’t done it in a while. Lately he’s been clapping his hands instead of dancing, but tonight was different. He was flapping his arms which I thought was really cute considering it was a bird song.
All of a sudden, something snaps me out of my mushy mom moment… What’s that smell?? I looked up to discover that my sweet little toddler was not dancing adorably as I had thought. Instead, he was flapping his arms to fling poop off of his hands 🤦🏻♀️. Apparently I didn’t notice he had quietly pooped and he had been bum scratchin’. Ew… So low and behold, my dreamy mommy moment quickly turned into a MamaFailer moment. Proving once again, you should always be 100% present with your kids… otherwise you could be holding your nose and cleaning poop off the floor like me.
