Can I be a SuperMom, please?

Yes, I need some classes! I am wondering how you all do it!! Being a mom is so rewarding and I love every second of it. As we get closer to the toddler stages I have realized that it only gets crazier but what I have realized about those crazy moments.. they will never be forgotten!!

I have to tell you all about my adventure last night! All day I was excited to get out of the house to go to family night that was held at our local mall. It was going to be a great night. Daddy had to work and it was going to be a girls night out! Plus it gave me an excuse to go to the mall, hehe. I was all set and ready for a fun night. We got there a little early so I went in and changed Kerhia so I wouldn't have to worry about a dirty diaper while we were having fun. We decided to stroll around and do some shopping. Daddy wasn't there to say "NO".. Well Kerhia got a very serious look. So I knew right away I should check her diaper. Guess what, there was no poop in the diaper..but all outside the diaper!! How did this manage to happen??! I didn't have a change of clothes with me and it wasn't like it was a mess to clean up then throw her in the car and go home! It had to be taken care of! So, let me remind you I am almost 8 months pregnant! RUNNING with a child covered in poop into JcPenny's trying to get to the kid's section to buy an outfit. I had no choice!! So I get into JcPenny's and realize that all their summer/spring wear is out! They had one little clearance rack with some winter clothes.. of course none of them were her size! I had no choice but to buy a shorts outfit with a cute little shirt. I bought the outfit and ran to the family bathroom and spent over half an hour in there trying to clean up. I got her nice and cleaned and in her new summer outfit. She looked to cute, except for the fact it is still the middle of February! I was now determined after all that work that I was going to take her out there to have some fun with the other kids. So now here I am with a 17 month old little girl in the middle of winter in a pair of blue shorts and plaid tank top! I looked like a horrible mother and I know every mother passing by me was thinking "That poor kid."

Well we finished the night having a good time! Kerhia got her face painted into a little kitty cat (her favorite animal). I will never forget about our night out to the mall together now.. All though it was one of the most stressful nights I have had.. I realized that is what motherhood is about. All though I will never be a supermom.. I will have memories that I will get to tell her about when she is a teenager and we are out shopping for a pair of shorts.

  1. River seemed to get lots of new clothes by pulling that stunt. It happens. You handled it well. :o) It doesn't end once potty trained either. Mike took River to potty at Wal-Mart one day. After a bit, he walks out carrying her and all she had on was her undies and her shoes. During the process of him wiping her butt, her dress fell down in the back and got poop on it. So she got a new Curious George outfit that day. Bad things turn into good memories. :o)
