The Balance Beam and "Potty Talk" - Parenting in the Real World

"Potty Talk"
The Balance Beam (October 18, 2009)

"Warning: This post may not be suitable for those who have never taken care of small children and/or those with a strong sensory gag reflex.

"Recently, I've regained the privilege of cleaning the soiled underpants of my four-year old son (aka 'Spiderman'). This task includes wiping his similarly smeared derriere of course.

I've said it before: parenting isn't for wimps.

This is a new blog to me, and looks like a very down-to-earth window on the sort of real-world issues the grown-ups in families face. Nothing big or "glamorous" here - just the sort of thing that needs to be cleared away before the fun side of family life can happen.

The Balance Beam's description/subhead is "Life Balance Strategy, Humor & Random Overshare"

I don't think you'll find "expert" opinions and insights in this blog. What I read of it seemed like common-sense observations and advice from someone who's actually seen kids in their natural habitat.
A tip of the hat to BeamingBalance, on BlogCatalog. I ran into her blog in a discussion thread about blog photos there.
