Recently, I decided to share with you some of my idiot mom moments as part of my tips. I thought these funny mom moments would help you feel better about your own parenting. Let’s just call it “Parenting for Dummies.” If you missed my post a few days ago, you might enjoy reading about another bodily function - peeing. Do you find that you have never had more poop stories in your life? I’ve never been so concerned with or annoyed with this bodily function. Here’s the tip of the day that relates to this fun subject: If you know your son is having diarrhea due to teething, don’t leave the diaper off to let the diaper rash get some open air. I have heard that the best way to cure diaper rash is to leave the diaper off for a while. It’s great advice. Perhaps you shouldn’t take that advice if you are inside and your son has been literally pooping acidic poops 7 times a day. That’s the time to leave the diaper on and stick with the cream. If you don’t follow this advice, you might…you just might…have a child that poops diarrhea, steps in it and then walks all the way across the house to come find you leaving a Hansel and Gretel like trail behind him. That just might happen to you. Sorry about the graphic nature of these posts. We’re moms. You can handle it, right?
