She is cute, right. I mean, come on. I’m her mom, I might not be objective about her all the time, but she is way cute.
Her poo smells. I mean bad. Like, ‘Why did I not even try elimination communication!?!’ bad. What can I do (other than hand her over to Skylar)? Is there some magic make my baby’s poo stop smelling like feral dogs who eat stick bombs and roll in possum doo food?
Any-who, we are headed out to Florida, to spend Christmas with Skylar’s parents. This morning, the weather channel was predicting a high of 2 and a low of 1 in Chicago tomorrow. There is probably a foot or more of snow out there, too. Aaa, Florida! I cannot wait. Sun, swimming, and please, oh please, a break from this eczema that has taken over our family. We are very dry and very uncomfortable.
So a while ago we started Harper on solid foods. I admit, I’m not a parent who reads about parenting. I do things on demand, and have a pretty demanding child. (I have not idea where she gets it.) So who needs books, right? Solid food. I eat it all the time. They make it for babies, and sell it in glass jars at the store. Open the jar. Feed the baby. Yea! Solid Food!
If I had been a bit more cautious, like most first time parents that know where the parenting section of their local library is, frequent Barns and Noble or Borders or what have you, and look stuff up on-line, my child would not have had diarrhea for 3 DAYS! Her poor bum is red. I have been changing diapers endlessly. There is so much poop, green and clumpy or yellow and wet. Damn you multi-grain infant serial! Ugh. One grain at a time, one grain at a time. Not rice serial, and then multi grain.
