This morning I noticed a large zit forming on my forehead. For those who don't know, toothpaste is a wonderful way to get rid of one quick. Plain old white toothpaste will absorb the oils and give a refreshing feeling. It is also great for bug bites and ivy rashes... ANYWAY... I digress.
So. I put toothpaste on the zit... as Miss K wasn't due to come for 2 more hours. I made a mental note to wash it off before her time of arrival. (********Those of you who don't have kids... mental reminders don't work as well once you have kids! *****Those of you who do, you know how SILLY of an idea that was!) I'm sure you can already figure out where this is heading...
Miss K came. I chatted with her mom. Mom of Miss K left. We all played with books and toys in the living room. Changed diapers. Got snacks together. Packed up kids. Headed to chiropractor.
Taking all 3 toddlers into the Chiro attracts a lot of attention. So, I chatted with the people in the waiting room. Chatted with the receptionist. Basically, we were social butterflies. (*** You almost HAVE to be with twins!)
I wheeled the kids into Dr. E's office. As he is shutting the door he says, "What is wrong with your forehead?!"
OHHHHHhhhh SHHHHIIIIITTTTTTTT!!!!!! is my first thought. I forgot about the DAMN toothpaste!
I laugh it off. Meanwhile, I am licking my fingers and using the spit (yes, very gross, but I had to get rid of it ASAP!). I am sure I was beet red. All the while I am explaining about trying to get rid of my HUGE zit and how many uses toothpaste has, besides cleaning your teeth.
I played it cool. I am proud of that... but MAN was I embarrassed!
Oh well. He didn't think much of it. He is a great guy. But, I think we might be causing a delay in his having kids any time soon. That sometimes happens around us.
Anyway, Ha ha moment on me. Such is life.
