I always wanted to be a mother. It was all I ever wanted to be when I grew up. I would fantasize about all the fun we would have and the things we would do together. I am not completely naive and I knew there would be many gross and not so fun times along the way, after all I have worked in many daycares and as a nanny off and on for the last 13 years. One thing I could never have imagined myself doing was spending and hour in the back yard, disintegrated dog poop with my high powered water hose, while trying to keep my toddler and his bubble blowing lawn mower from playing it. I should have known this day would come. I do have an 85lb, 12 year old mutt and a 15 month old boy who loves to be outside. Somehow I was still surprised when I looked up from the pile off dishes I was working on to see David and his poop covered foot. I suppose it could have been MUCH worse. The poop only covered one foot and a few fingers, luckily I'm in good enough shape to sprint over and prevent any from making it into his mouth.
Now that I have destroyed all the giant poop mounds I can get back to my dishes, or perhaps I'll just sit back and enjoy the bubble blowing lawn mower with David.
