If these are the things you're looking for, I'm not the one for you.
I have to admit my baby had the bumps for a long time. They were there and then they spread before I even realized what was going on.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, molluscum contagiosum (MC) are pink bumps with a dimple in the center. They are thought about like warts, but they aren’t. They are caused by a poxvirus. They are really contagious, but doctors can’t do much for them. They supposedly go away on their own in 1-2 years.
When my baby was a few months old, I received a baby calendar. It was like a yearly wall calendar, but the picture area had spaces for baby’s pictures and the date boxes were meant to be filled in with baby’s firsts and special moments. Then, at the end of the baby’s first year, you just cut the pages at the top and stick them into a scrapbook, and there you go! I had been texting those special moments and pictures to my mom and husband, so I figured I could just fill in the earlier time period and keep up with the present.
Tuesday was a rough day. My baby was getting a tooth and needing a lot of mommy-time. Rather than the 10 AM grocery trip I’d planned, we ended up in the grocery line closer to 5 PM. I was there with my baby in the Ergo* and my dinner in my basket waiting to check out, when a woman (probably mid-20’s) in the next line sweetly asks, “Don’t you do that at home?”
“What?” I ask, somewhat confused. I was just minding my own business and didn’t expect to be addressed (though I had an idea of what was coming next).
