There's a hex on this house
My toddler has diarrhea now. Maybe I've been Candomblé-ed. Most likely it's a virus. So we have two little typhoid Marys running around here.
While this too shall pass, I realize that my husband and I may be the next victims. The saddest thing about our society is it's lack of understanding for adult diarrhea. It's faux pas to even talk about it, much less go into your work bathroom and bust out a round.
So what are parents of young children supposed to do? Do we suppress our body's need with a bottle of pepto or do we put our head up high and say "I have Diarrhea and I am proud!"?
