It's a cheese-filled life for me!

Earlier today, I felt something strange on my leg.  Upon further inspection, I realized that it was a chunk of earwax that I had removed from Gibson's ear...and apparently wiped onto my leg.

This is my life now.

Before I was a mom, I never imagined that I would:
-Scrape earwax out of my baby's ears and wipe it on myself
-Pick boogers out of my kid's nose.  And wipe them on myself.
-Kiss a drool-covered mouth
-Smell Gibson's neck cheese* to check for yeast.  And wipe it on my pants.
-Get spit up in my mouth
-Get poop on my fingers (this is one thing I don't wipe on myself)
-Wipe spit up off Gibson's chin with my fingers when I can't find a towel.  And then wipe it on myself.
-Smell pee-filled diapers to make sure they're getting clean in the wash
-Wear clothes that are covered in spit up all day.  I mean, I'm already covered in earwax, boogers, and neck cheese.  What's a little spit up?

I really shouldn't be surprised that I do any of that.  I have a history of doing gross things with my dog...and really, dogs are just like babies.  Right?  I feed Ellie the eye boogers that I pick out of her eyes, she licks me on the mouth, and once she had one of my hairs stuck in her butt, and I pulled it out.  I think I used a piece of toilet paper to do that, but I honestly can't remember.  I probably washed my hands afterward, don't worry.

So...there's no real surprise that I do gross things now that I'm a mom.  I might just be a gross person.  And I'm ok with that.

*Neck cheese happens when your baby has a fat neck with lots of folds and spit up gets caught in the folds.  And when he tips his head back, the pungent smell of cheese takes over and you want to barf.  And then you wipe it from his folds and your fingers smell like cheese.  I lead a glamorous, cheese-scented life.
