I'm nearing the end of this challenge and the end has proven to be the challenge. I had to be creative yesterday and today all I can think of is the color yellow. I was tempted to go look at pictures of cute fluffy diapers again but almost every brand offers a yellow diaper so that wasn't quite as fun as the other colors. Though I could have gone on the hunt for yellow diapers with cute color names like macaroni and cheese!
Instead, my thoughts wandered from diapers to something else... something yucky. So Y is for Yucky.
As a teacher there are a few things that I don't handle well. One is barf. When a student pukes, I just want to curl up in the corner. It makes me gag and want to throw up too. Now, W's spit up doesn't have this effect on me, so we're good so far. We'll have to see what happens the first time he is really sick and puking. I'm sure I will do what I always do in my classroom, suck it up and help the child in need. But still -- yuck!
The only problem with only having to deal with it a few times a week is that I never get used to it! Now, I don't know if you can ever get used to it but when we have to change him it's like every time is the first time I've smelled such horror! It is definitely a yuck and I gag almost every time. This is definitely of my weaknesses as a mother! Perhaps I will get stronger or my sense of smell will begin to fade! If not, I am doomed to many more diaper changes while I try not to breathe through my nose!
