Leave It to a Toddler to Make You Feel Like…

Filed Under: Life

a complete and total douche bag.

Tucker put Cara down for her nap.  I was in our bedroom talking my mom down from a nervous attack concerning her phone going dead and her missing “THE CALL” aka I’ve gone into labor.  Apparently Mom doesn’t realize that she has just a tiny bit of time to get over here when I actually go into labor.

Anyway, Tucker put the kid to bed and went to class while I painted my toenails since I ended up being induced with Cara the last time I painted my toenails this late in pregnancy.  Does that make sense?  I painted my toenails and ended up being induced the same day.

So, from a purely scientific standpoint, toenail painting equals birth.  Just thought you should know that.

Cara was in her room for about an hour while I contorted myself to purty tootsies.

Since she never lost her shit and she hadn’t gotten out of her bed, I figured that even if she didn’t take a nap, the “quiet time” would be good for her AND me.

After I was done with my painting, I finally made my way to her room.  I could hear her saying, “Pee pee!” over and over again.  This isn’t a phrase that should illicit any sort of concern since we just got her that potty and she often says “pee pee”.

And then I walked into her room.

And she wasn’t wearing a diaper.

Yeah…you know where that’s going.  Expect it wasn’t just “pee pee”.

Luckily her bed has a kick-ass cover/mattress pad and everything was just tossed into the washing machine.

I can’t help but wonder when she took her diaper off and how long she was on her bed with all of the nastiness.  While it all ended up just fine I have to admit that I feel rather guilty.

This might be my first “mommy guilt” moment.


  1. She went to bed with no pants right, just a diaper? That happened in our house once, never again. But mine was just pee, no poo.

    And what… no picture? 😯 jk. seriously.

  2. Nah, it’s not time for mommy guilt, just time to teach her to say “poop” or maybe even “oh crap!” LOL
