That's not supposed to be there
Every day of motherhood has one of those I know that did not just happen moments. Yesterday's was very special. I had taken Jackson's pants off since they were super long and I wanted him to be able to move freely in case he wanted to try walking again. He was playing in the living room with all his toys, including his piggy bank and coins. Later we went into his room for some reason and were wrestling around on the floor. After a fun hair-pulling experience I sat up and saw that one of the big plastic coins from Jackson's piggy bank was sticking out of the back of his diaper. What in the world? He must have dropped it straight behind his head. And then I plucked it from the diaper. And, SURPRISE, it was covered in poop. WHAT IN THE WORLD!?!? You know what? My mind really could not comprehend what had just happened and I stared at it trying to think what else it could possibly be. It was definitely poop. I guess that was practice for when he swallows a nickel one day.
