Daddy’s and the toxic baby poop

The things daddy’s will do in the name of love.

My husband is the type of man who can stomach anything, and I mean A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G. We always joke around that he’s got the gut of a goat. One time we went out for burritos and we ordered the same exact thing.  Later that night, I ended up hugging the toilet bowl wishing to be put out of my misery while he slept soundly.  But, come to find out there is one thing that he cannot stomach… baby poop.

For the life of him, he cannot handle baby poop. It has to be the funniest thing I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing. Now, before I begin, let me just say that he is extremely hands on with baby A. In no way does he try to get out of changing her diapers, he just isn’t very good at it.

Diapers

Starting baby A out on solid foods her diapers got a little worse, just like we heard they would, but I don’t think there is anything in this world that could have prepared Tommy. The first time he changed a solid food poop diaper I thought he was going to die. I was sitting out in the living room and I could hear him gagging, actually gagging changing her diaper. I couldn’t stop laughing! He came out into the kitchen telling me how it atrocious it was while he was sorting through one of our junk drawers. I asked him what he was doing and his reply was, ” I am looking for a chip clip for my nose”. A chip clip! My husband needed a chip clip to change our babies diaper!

What is it with men and poopy diapers? They can handle bones sticking out of skin, but not baby poop?! Moms, I know you agree with me when I say it is not that bad. Right?

Today…

The reason why I write this post today is because this morning Baby A had the worst diaper I have ever seen! It’s like she exploded! Literally. I started lifting up her bottom and the trail of poo was never-ending! I lifted her up a little more… still there, a little bit more… still there! By the time I found the end of the explosion, it was up by her shoulder blades! I kid you not. “How did all of this come out of something so tiny,” I asked myself. As I am cleaning the little poo monster up, I look down and tell baby A, “Your dad would have surely lost his breakfast if he had to change this” “This would have ended him” and she just smiled.

Call me mean, but I’ve been known to trick him into changing a few poopy diapers. Just the other day I said, “Babe, can you change her diaper, I have to pee”.  Two minutes later I hear him in there nearly calling the dinosaurs and telling baby A “that’s just not right”, “that’s toxic”, “Your mom did this on purpose!” Hey, what can I say, it’s the little things! 🙂

My point is, even though changing Baby A’s soiled diaper causes him to need a respirator, or in his case a chip clip, he still does it. He loves being a daddy, and all the responsibilities that come with it. And, I love to see him with her, gagging and all.

If you have funny baby poop stories, comment below! I’d love to hear them!

Cheers,

Victoria

Easy and delicious Fire Roasted Corn Dip

Warning: Pants may be a little snug after eating this dip.

Fire Roasted Corn Dip

I love chips and dip. It’s one of my many weaknesses when it comes to food. One of my favorite things to do is to go to a restaurant, order a nice drink, chips, and some sort of dip and just sit there and relax. So, there is no surprise that my first actual blog post would be a dip recipe. You’re probably saying to yourself, “She is starting off with a dip” but I made this for a little family get together this weekend and it was a big hit!

The great thing about this recipe is that you should have all the ingredients lying around your kitchen already. Plus, its super simple to make! Bonus points for that right?

Let’s get down to it shall we? Below are the ingredients you will need.

Ingredients for corn dip

As you can see, there is no low-fat anything here, I just can’t do it, especially when it comes to something as delicious as a dip. Another thing, I am a huge wuss when it comes to anything hot, so even though I tell you to add Red Pepper flakes, what I really mean is just a pinch. However, if you love yourself some spicy stuff, be sure to add as much as you like!

Comment below with what you think about this little gem once you’ve tried it, and if you decide to add something else into the mix, be sure and tell me, I love to hear what people do to make it their own!

Hello World! Welcome to Family, Food, and Crafts!

Hello there and welcome to Family, Food, and Crafts!

I’m so glad that you decided to stop on in. Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Victoria. I am a wife, mother, and book lover ! My husband and I currently live in Colorado. We have one human baby and four fur babies (three dogs and a cat) and let me tell you, things get pretty hectic around here! Since welcoming little baby A into the world, I have been blessed to be able to stay home with her and do what I love, which is creating little odds and ends. I have recently opened up an Etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/VictoriasCraftStudio) and decided that it was time that I start a blog. Starting a blog is something that I have been thinking about doing for quite some time now, and after much deliberation, I have decided to take the plunge and do it!

Now, I’ve been thinFamily Food & Craftsking long and hard on what this blog is going to be about. There’s a lot of people who like to stick to one particular thing, but that’s just not me. I like to bounce around and have fun so, I’ve decided that this blog is going to be filled with a little bit of everything! It’s going to be filled with TONS of fun, exciting things! I’m going to have recipes, and I mean recipes for everyone! For the men, for the kids, for you moms when you don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking. There’ll be side dishes, breakfast items, dips, you name it I’ll have it! I’ll also have family anecdotes, crafts, and everything in between.

So, please come in, grab your favorite beverage (I’m thinking maybe a nice glass of wine, or tea if that’s what you’re in to) and stay awhile! Things are just getting started!

 

Cheers,

Victoria
