Huggies wants to know my most memorable diaper moment — brace yourselves, it’s going to get “yusky” as my 4 year old says.

C-A-C-A.

You don’t need to know Spanish to know what that is.

As a mamá of a nearly 5 month old, caca is just part of my everyday life — caca on my hands, under my fingernails, the lingering smell in her room and all those “I JUST changed you and you pooped again” moments all parents experience. There is no shortage of diaper and caca moments here!

The most memorable and funniest diaper/poop moment happened just a few weeks ago. I was changing Little L and M (who is 4 1/2 years old) was standing on this toy box watching. He is absolutely fascinated with all things caca and pipí and he likes to help by handing me the wipes, then the cream and finally the diaper.

That day Little L had a FULL load. You know, those that you think “how can someone so little do something SO big?!” It was…GROSS. It was half way up her belly and up her back. I pulled back the diaper and M and I both said “Ewwwww” at the same time.

How can someone so little and so cute make such a mess?!

We started laughing and I quickly started wiping her to get her in the bath. I wiped and wiped and wiped. Got more wipes, but nada! It was all over the place. She was kicking her legs, trying to move around and well, the caca kept spreading! I went to reach for a towel when M screams “¡Mira! MAS caca mami!” And started laughing and panicking at the same time.

And sure enough she was going…again. And it wouldn’t stop, it was like a one of those play dough machines. We managed to get her to the bath where she still did more — it was unbelievable! And through the panic and the mess, she was happy, smiling and even laughing watching us scramble to avoid the caca.

After that, she had a nice long nap. I on the other had laundry to do, a room to sanitize and I ended up taking a hot shower because the smell would not go away.

Now I can laugh about it — that day, not so much. Sometimes the messes are unavoidable but it’s important to have good diapers to prevent leakage and Huggies Snug & Dry have new SureFit design that provides up to 12 hours of protection (and you can also wear rubber gloves) so make sure to put those on your essentials list!

It’s been a long summer. In fact, too long. My son’s last day of kindergarten was June 2nd! Take a few moments to ponder that one.

My kids and I played (and searched for pieces!) with the Pop Up Shape Sorter as part of a sponsored post for SocialStars and Playskool #PlayskoolCrew Toys in this house {Read More}

15 Most Influential Mom Fashion and Beauty Bloggers

This blog began in January 2012 after blogging as my son for two years at Mummy’s Busy World (no longer online.) I was scared to be me, especially if I was going to show real style, fashion and beauty as a mamá. I hadn’t seen much by way of mom fashion bloggers so I wasn’t sure where to start. I thought fashion and beauty blogging was for the thin, under 30 and childless — at least that’s what it seemed like. {Read More}
