Mom Imperfect: Lip gloss edition

Last week I wrote about an imperfect moment in my life. I want to make this a regular part of this blog. Thankfully, I am overwhelmed with imperfect moments and a lot of them are incredibly funny.

A little background. I have several eos lipbalms. Wesley thinks that they are balls. He wants to hold them, throw them, and try to bounce them. It doesn't bother me at all and seems completely harmless. You can see where this is going...

A few days ago Wesley had the eos honey dew lipbalm in his hand. It was occupying him while I was putting on his shoes. He was sitting in my lap and I was tying his tennis shoes. One shoe on and I look at Wesley before putting on the other shoe. Turns out, while he was literally sitting in my lap, he took a huge bite of the lip balm.

I wish I'd gotten a picture of that. Seriously. Instead I went into freak-mom mode and cleared his mouth by shoving my fingers in there to scoop out anything I could find in there. Thankfully, because it's just lip balm, it was easy to scoop out. Wesley was pretty upset that I was taking away his honeydew melon.

I did end up snagging this picture of him post-snack. He was very interested in the iPhone and not that interested in having his picture taken.

Seriously, who literally watching their child eat chap stick? I don't blame him - the stuff smells amazing - but I am in awe that I didn't notice until he had been chomping on it for a while!

What's the latest imperfect thing you've done?

  1. This is my favorite blog series ever. EVER! I sat C down in the living room with a few toys while I prepared her bottles and baby food for the day in the kitchen. It literally took me 3 minutes or less. When I came around the corner I found her sitting by the dog crates (our living room is L-shaped and the crates are around the L, out of the way, and she's never ever crawled over there.) She had crawled in one, pulled out an old NICU blanket we had brought the dogs when she was born, and had a corner of it in her mouth. Its maybe been washed 3 times in the last 9 months...ACK!
