Today, I definitely put my Wake Forest education to good use.
Before you read this blog, though, a word of warning: It’s disgusting. It’s about bodily functions. Enough said. If you choose to bow out now, I won’t blame you. I’ll see you later. No hard feelings…really.
So, as I was saying, I put my wanna-be Ivy league education to good use today. No, I wasn’t trying to edit my novel, readjusting measurements on something I’m knitting, or web writing. I wasn’t teaching with that hard-earned education degree or trying to trick my kids with my psychology minor.
No, today I tried to collect a stool specimen from my 4 year old, who’s had diarrhea for going on 7 days now.
And I won.
I problem solved. I researched. I read. I received feedback from friends and nurses. I took it all in.
And I did it, without so much as a spot of diarrhea on my hands.
I used the old saran wrap over the toilet seat trick. They’re right…that one really does work every time.
To those who say that homemakers don’t need a university education, I’m sticking my tongue out at you.
To those that are shaking their heads at all this diarrhea talk, I say enjoy your days pre-child.
To those who went to Wake Forest, Go Deacs!
