To those working mothers, I don't know how you do it. Those 4 months that I worked 32 hours a week was HARD. REALLY HARD.
And now I'm a stay at home momma. And this is why. This adorable little boy!
The next day he took me to dinner at Cafe Rio in Denver and we stopped by the Joann's that was close. While in Joann's Landon really started stinking. We knew we needed to find somewhere to change him. My preferred place to change a diaper when out is in Target. We couldn't find a target close so we stopped at McDonalds. Usually McDonalds is an okay place. Ryan decided to wait in the car while I ran in and changed him. I get him out of the car seat an start pulling his clothes off and realize there is poop all over, up to his shoulders! Yes, he has poop on his shoulder blades! It is going to be near impossible to get his clothes off without getting poop all over him. I get Ryan to come in to the womens' restroom and help me get his clothes off. Oh and the best part is, there is no paper towels in this restroom. Only air hand dryers. I convinced the workers to give me some of their precious papertowels to put down beneath him after I refused to use napkins.
So we managed to get him cleaned up and dressed in the spare outfit, but there was some poop left on the changing table. I went to ask the workers for some cleaning supplies so I could clean it up. They said they would do it for me. I feel a little bad. We weren't even paying customers. And that is our poop story for the week.
I thought he would hate it. I thought he would be screaming and thrashing about the entire time, but as it turns out he liked it. He didn't scream. He didn't thrash about until the end. He just sat there and let me give him a bath. Maybe this is indicative of how he will feel about baths in the future. Who knows, but I do know this one was not very traumatic which was nice for my sanity.
When he was born he had curly hair, but it straightened out after a bit. Turns out, it just needs to get wet and the curl comes right back.
We both survived his first bath.
