    1. Changing a blowout diaper.

    This is not your typical poopy diaper. This is an explosion of poo out the sides of the diaper, up the back of your baby, and down their legs.

    2. Helping your constipated baby’s poo get unstuck.

    If your baby is having trouble pooping, many doctors will recommend anal stimulation to help get it out.

    3. Using your bare hand to rub snot off your kid's nose.

    Or cleaning their face with your own spit. Hey, when you don't have a tissue, you just gotta do what you gotta do.

    4. Sucking your kid's snot out when it's stuck.

    It is what it sounds like: using a tube to suck your kid's snot out of their nose.

    5. Catching your kid's projectile vomit with a body part...or your face.

    You can't always predict when your kid will vomit, but you can predict that it will probably end up on you.

    6. Taking a drink after your kid probably backwashed in it.

    Same germs.

    7. Scooping turds out of your kid's bath.

    Kids poop. Kids poop in bathtubs. It happens...and YOU get to clean it up.

    8. Having your kid spit something out into your hand.

    It was either food they ate and didn't like or something they shouldn't have put in their mouth to begin with, like Play-Doh.

    9. Fishing toys (and random objects) out of the toilet.

    Race cars, your favorite watch, bouncy balls, really anything.
