Mom Of The Year? Fail....

Mom of the Year, I am not.  Ever think something was not damaging to your children, only to find out later that you were wrong??  This was one of those moments....
   For the past couple of months, our one year old has been mouthing the pump on our hand lotion bottle.  Since he wasn't depressing the spout, it was perfectly safe.  Obviously, nothing would come out since the pump wasn't going down.
   The other night, a sleep-deprived mommy cocked her head sideways as Malachi gnawed on the lotion bottle.  Hmmmm.... I wonder if he really is sucking lotion out.  Nah, that's not possible....Oh, wait...it looks like he's enjoying it...and there's his "naughty grin"....  Concerned that lotion was actually being consumed, I snatched the bottle away from him.  The next step involved sanitizing the spout with a wipee.  After that, I put my mouth on the spout.  And sucked.  And tasted lotion...
    Grossed out by the facts that: 1. Malachi's really been eating lotion, 2. it tastes yucky, I used another wipee to wipe out my mouth.  That tasted yucky too! Apparently, it is possible to get lotion out of a pump bottle with out depressing the spout.  There's your Little Known Fact of the day.  Enjoy.

                                    EEEEEEEWWWWWW.....
