I Knew It Would Come In Useful Someday

One of the generally not so nice things about pregnancy is the heightened sense of smell that most women experience.  Even some of your favorite smells can become horrid when they are ten times stronger than normal.  Of course, when you live with a toddler and four animals (not to mention a husband) most of the smells in every day life aren’t so pleasant.  That’s why I didn’t find it out of the ordinary when I smelled something strange on my way out the door this morning.  But, when I came home and still smelled the awful smell, I had to find the source of it.

My nose led me to the couch and when I didn’t find anything there I looked underneath.  There it was.  A sippy cup wreaking of sour milk.  My best guess is that it has been there since either Friday night or Saturday morning.  As mentioned in my last post, we’ve barely been home over the last few days and I didn’t miss the cup during that time.   I cracked the cup open just enough to confirm my suspicions, then chucked it in the trash.  No need to torture myself by trying to clean it out.

As awful as it was to find the cup, I have to say I’m thankful for my pregnancy nose right now.  I can’t imagine how much worse it might have gotten before I found the cup otherwise.

  1. I don’t think I had “pregnancy nose”. As a matter of fact, I only had morning sickness once during my two pregnancies; I figured out the cause (not eating breakfast) and never again had a problem… except for gaining sixty pounds the first time and forty the second.

  2. I never had the pregnancy nose either.

    Don’t you LOVE finding those old sippy cups? My favorites are the milk cups that are left in the car for days during the heat of summer. I often just toss the cup rather than trying to clean it. Yuck.

  3. I’m so glad to be out of the milk bottle phase just for that reason. I won’t even describe for you the bottles I have found under my furniture and kids beds. Ugh.
    Bottles hold the stench in much better than sippy cups otherwise I would have found them MUCH sooner.

  4. Merry Christmas to you and your family Dee! 🙂
