To all those people who said I was doing the wrong thing by dating a man ten years my senior *blows huge raspberry* ... we make beautiful babies!
To all those people who scoffed because I married the "first man who came along" *blows HUGE raspberry*
To all those people who said my schoolwork would suffer if my partner moved in with me *blows huge raspberry*
To all those people who said I was too young to be a Mumma *blows huge raspberry*
To all those people who said I HAD to let my daughter "cry it out" *blows huge raspberry*
To all those people who said I would have to return to work after Butterfly was born "for my own sanity" *blows huge raspberry*
To all those people who said I HAD to be having a boy because I was "fat all over" *blows huge raspberry*
To all those people who think I have to have another c section just because I've already had one *blows huge raspberry*
To all those people who think I can't continue to breastfeed my baby because she is over a year old, or two years old... *blows huge raspberry*
To all those people rolling their eyes at my new found vegetarianism *blows huge raspberry*
I love it when people tell me what I can or can't do... makes me so determined to prove them wrong!!

For those of you with all of this to look forward to, and for those who know it all too well...
- Eaten something that had fallen out of someone else's mouth... well the bin was too far away!!
- Pre-empted someone's vomit in time to catch it in my hand... then wiped it on my own jeans because I was in Target and without my nappy bag!
- Shared a bath with someone who defecated in the water...
- Picked someone else's nose. Then wiped it on my own jeans. (Yes, my poor jeans cop it a bit!)
- On that note... had someone effectively "blow" their snotty nose on my boob while breastfeeding!
- Also... had someone vomit all over my nipple after just drinking a litre of milk out of said nipple.
- Held someone close to me while they were sick, so they remained clean while I got covered in vomit
- Had someone attempt to pick my nose!
- Had someone else feed me sultanas... off the floor! YUM!
- Had to apologise to a friend for squirting them in the leg with breastmilk...
This day Butterfly pooed on me... I told my hubby, "Don't just stand there, GET something!"
He returned with the camera...
You know, none of the above things even gross me out! OK, so I wasn't impressed on the weekend when I got a hand full of poo trying to wipe Butterfly's butt... but that was an overly stinky one. Motherhood is messy, but luckily things aren't as gross when they come from one of your own!
I'd swim through a river of poo, pee and snot just for one of Butterfly's lushious cuddles!! I LOVE MY DAUGHTER!!
