My Monday Moments describe special moments of motherhood. Sometimes they are moments that make me laugh. Sometimes these moments make me cringe. Other times, they make me do both!
This past Friday I had MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers). I am on the leadership team. I stayed afterward just a little bit to help clean-up. After MOPS, instead of heading directly home, I drove around a bit. It was a beautiful sunny day and I felt like enjoying the sunshine for a few minutes.
Once I got home, I began to make lunch. It was at that time that my youngest son (my 3 year-old) said something to me that was really cute. I leaned down to give him a hug.
Whoa! The stench of him nearly knocked me over. I checked his pants and it was not pleasant- not in the slightest way.
"Oh my! What in world?!!"
"You have poop in your pants!!"
It had been there a long time.
"WHY didn't you tell someone at MOPS?! (deep breath) Sweetie, why didn't you ask them to get your mom?"
There was a small pause. He looked up at me with his innocent eyes and then said,
"I thought about it... but every time I thought about it, I almost threw up."
