The things I thought I would have never say until I became a mother

It's funny how motherhood has changed my everyday conversation. It's no longer things like "How was your day at work today?" or "Let's make plans to go out this weekend." Instead it's things like talking about my child's bowel movements. "Did Grant poop today?" "What was the consistency of his poop?" "What color was it?" Never in a million years would I have ever thought I would be talking about poop at the dinner table. And never could I imagine that talking about a child's bowel movements on a regular basis, is a normal thing. But a gross as the imagery and description of my child's crap, I have to know these things for his well being and health. Some days I find myself talking about Grant so much to Matt and to everyone else, that I have to stop to remember what normal non-baby related conversations entail.

It's amazing now of the things I that come out of my mouth now as a parent. Sometimes I have to stop myself, and question, "Did that seriously come out of my mouth?" So for entertainment value, here are things I've said to Grant, that I never thought I would find myself saying: (And are all true things, I've said, and can't even make up.)

 "Don't eat the cat food Grant, that's ick."

"What do you have in your hand? Oh no, is that Cat poop, yucky, get that out of your hand."

"We look with our eyes not with our hands."

"Why are you playing with one of my breast pump parts?"

"Oh no! You just took off all the toilet paper off the roll"

"Grant don't eat the webcam. Grandma doesn't want to see the inside of your mouth"

"Don't bite mommy's belly or shoulder, that hurts."

"Ouch! Grant, why did you bite my back fat?"

"You're a silly boy blowing your nose on your diapers!"

"No bites, that hurts mommy."

Here comes trouble!

I'm sure in the next year, I can double this list. Grant is so much fun, and makes me laugh everyday. I love the little personality that is coming out of him. He is constantly getting into things and doing things he shouldn't He definitely keeps me on my toes!
