Bodily Functions

So as a mom, I think we all develop a very healthy, non-chalant attitude about our kids' bodily functions. I mean from Day 1 in the hospital, "they" expect us to change our newborn baby's diapers all by ourselves. And so it goes...diaper after diaper, onto underpants after underpants, including many mishaps at the potty, in the car, on the sofa, in bed while wearing a halloween costume, etc... resulting in all variety of soiled Spiderman underoos/jeans/tights/socks/shoes, etc. Which, of course, requires us to remove, dispose of, manipulate, scrub, rinse, wash large amounts of bodily excretions. Honestly, a mom's life is filled with a lot of shit, literally.

So here's the thing....
why... when I'm in a public restroom do I have to ...
squeeze my eyes shut, put my fingers in my ears and silently hum Showtunes to myself so that I feel comfortable enough to... "drop the kids off" ?

Show tunes? Really?

Brady makes fun of me because I can go anywhere with no issues. I think I checked my inhibitions into the hospital when I had Ella, and they never came home with me.

Yeah, I can't do that unless I'm at home. I think it's just a comfort thing.

Or I just have better reading material. :)
