Meet & Greet

As I'm running out the door to attend a neighborhood "Meet and Greet,"
my son tells me, "Mama, I got poopoo on my leg."

I hope I don't hear him correctly and ask, "What?"

And then I smell it.

I look down to see that he has pulled off his diaper and had the massive blow-out smeared and streaming down his little legs. Oh, the timing...oh, and the stench!

I grab the container of wipes- though I need a power-washer. I did the best I could with the time I had to clean him up. Then, I realize I need to clean myself up too. I must have scrubbed my hands 10 times-and I mean scrub like I was prepping for open heart surgery.

I just couldn't imagine going to a meet & greet and shaking hands with a bunch of people I'm meeting for the first time all the while smelling like poo.
The "Meet and Greet" was held at a neighbors house in order for the community to meet the local officials running for City office. I knew there would be a lot of hand-shaking, but there was also finger-foods! Luckily, I scrubbed off the first layer of skin so my hands were clean and poo-fragrance free!

I wouldn't worry about it if you are shaking some politicians hand...they are usually full of crap anyway! haha
