There are so many gross things mom do on a daily basis. The number of times my daughter has walked up to me, only to hand over something "gooey" that used to be on her finger, is nothing short of appalling. However, on vacation, and when typical routines and systems are out of place, being a mom somehow becomes even more disgusting. Yes, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the gross things every mom does on vacation with her kids knows no bounds. I've done all of them at least once, and our daughter isn't even 2 yet, you guys. So, I mean, if you're a mother I hope you have a stomach of steal.
Perhaps the grossest thing I've had to do as a mom on vacation — which just so happens to be the very thing that made me forget I was actually on a vacation at all — was spend 30 minutes in an airport bathroom washing a car seat, all thanks to a rather impressive diaper blow out. If you're not aware, airport bathroom sinks are so small and those paper towels they provide shred really quickly. Needless to say, those grueling 30 minutes did not qualify as "vacation time." In fact, most of the gross moments moms are forced to endure on vacation will make us moms feel like getting a break from parenthood is nothing short of impossible. I would even go so far to say they're the exact reason why we all get home from "vacation" needing another vacation.
So if you feel like you're alone in your vacation agony, try to remember that all moms do the following gross things when they're taking a break from the real world with their kids. No, really. We do. Unfortunately.
