You Might Be A Mommy If...

You channel Captain Kirk (from Star Trek) and boldly go where no man, or woman, has gone before...i.e. putting your nose to a child's bottom.

What is it about having a child that suddenly makes well-educated people begin to smell someone else's rear end? Ew. Is it because they are so small and cute? That doesn't change the way their poop smells. Is it because they are of our flesh and blood? Why?

With three children now, I'm still not used to seeing this sniffing ritual performed by so many parents. And I know when I've done it, it happens so quick I cannot believe I just did it. Like an instinct or something. Some disturbing parental instinct. So here's to "Eau de Bowels" and its power over us...bottom's up.
