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.
