An Email To Bryce


Why would I share an email of this magnitude with all of you?

Couple of reasons:

1. It will make you feel awesome about yourself.

2. It will dispell any preconceived notions you have about how well you think I have a handle on my life.

3. It will make you feel awesome about yourself.

4. You’ll get to silently judge me about having more kids than I can handle.

{But if we’re being honest, doesn’t everyone have more kids than they can handle some days?}

5. It will convince you that honesty is not always the best policy.

So, here’s the email:


Libby ate some poop this morning.

At least it was hers?

I was changing her, and got her all cleaned up when Bennett yelled ‘potty’.

So I left her half dressed

and, you guessed it,

her diaper unresolved.

Amateur mistake, really.

I took Bennett to the bathroom.

Which, of course he didn't need to go.

Because he just went.

And I knew that, but I wasn't 100% sure he didn't need to go.

The idea of having just changed a poopy diaper and then needing to clean up a wet Bennett made me paranoid.

He was really just trying to get a treat.

Anyway, after wrestling with that

I come back and find Libby with poop in her mouth

on her hands

and of course, a bit in her hair.

My most selfish thought was 

‘I still need to nurse you.’

I'll let you infer what that means.”

Don’t you wish you were on my email list?

Enjoy your three day weekend!
