Will this be rookie mom mistake number 7?
I was faced with a dirty belly button. Bath time. Perfect.
Stripped down to the buff and held snugly in her father's arms I went in for the attack armed with two dampened cotton swabs.
That guck was stuck in there.
Dare to challenge me!
I went in closer, used both hands gently squeezing. Yes, I got it!
And then it happened.
A warm golden stream hit against my cheeks just missing my open mouth,
reaching my shirt and eventually my lap!
I laughed until I cried.
I learned two things from this incident:
One. Even girls can projectile pee.
Two. Make sure your baby is wearing a diaper when you try to clean their belly button.
