I'm finding it seriously hard to believe that our beloved Duchess, Kate Middleton, is being criticized for wiping baby drool on her dress. She's the mom of a nine month old, people! Let's break the "offense" down, shall we?
- If she DIDN'T wipe the drool, she'd get criticized anyway for leaving drool hanging off her kid's face.
- They're at the zoo and it looks from the photos to be a lovely day outside, so the drool will dry quickly (especially in direct sunlight!)
- She discreetly and politely wiped it along the bottom of the dress near the hemline, not next to her face or across the chest like some commoner barbarian.
- This is not just any drool, it is ROYAL DROOL. Who wouldn't wipe it on her dress?
I've done way grosser and more embarrassing mom things than this — like the time I had to catch an airborne baby poo in my bare hand in an airport restroom (don't ask) or staple the hem of my pants back together because I ripped it running out the door to get my son to preschool on time on my way to a big work meeting.
I personally love seeing Kate do "real mom" things — it's clear that her and Will are determined to make their little Prince's life as charmed in reality as possible.
What are the grossest things you've done as a parent?
