The title should have sufficiently warned you.
Low Moment #1:
Over the weekend, I noticed thatboth Sebastian and Collette hadn't pooped in a couple days. This is typical (but still not good) for Collette but very odd for Sebas. I gave them both some Miralax in their milk - Collette stole most of Sebastian's and, shocker, pooped the next day. However, as of yesterday night, Sebastian still hadn't pooped and I could tell he was trying to and couldn't. A lovely chat with a friend who is a former nurse (hi Megan!) pointed me in the direction of suppositories. I hoped it wouldn't come to that but more Miralax did nothing. So, after school today, I got to give my son some medicine up his bum. Why don't any parenting books EVER mention this as a possibility?
Low Moment #2:
Matteo puts everything in his mouth. Dog food, bark mulch, crayons, whatever. I try not to spend too much time worrying about it. Whatever he swallows will probably just come out the other end, no problem. My theory was confirmed when I changed his diaper to see the poop staring back at me - the unlucky googly eye untouched by the digestive process. Ew.
