Being a mom can be completely disgusting

You could never be prepared for that grossest mommy moment.

For example, before traveling, we would make a long list of things we need for the little one. Like clockwork, we would check the list twice before departure… Bottle? Check. Snacks? Check. Diapers? Check. And the list goes on. But not even the longest list could save you from those gross moments…

Those moments you're not as prepared for. I'm not talking about the time you forgot the saline wipe for your toddler's runny nose. Moments when you're like, "Did that just happen?" Or telling a stranger "I think I found your child" while holding your child with poop everywhere. But then you soon come to realize, "OK, pull yourself together," while sobbing and cleaning your toddler in a public restroom. This is just one example of experiencing a gross mommy moment. Sometimes you're not always going to be prepared. But guess what! It happens to the best of us. And it's now worth laughing about. —Denise, Olivia Has 2 Moms
