What's your most gross parenting moment?

When talking child-rearing, it seems parents can never be too prepared on the levels of grossness they'll be in charge of while their young ones are still too young to take care of the nastier elements of being human. 

To vent, a dad in the throws of his daughter's upchuck took to the platform, r/daddit, and showed off just how rough things can get. It's pretty disgusting but if you want to see, here it is

And of course, other parents joined the conversation, sharing their most disgusting parenting moments, proving that along with a responsible and reliable nature, raising children also requires a strong stomach.

I'm all for it - we're going to have power cuts regardless, so we might as well have some stability to better plan our lives

No thanks! I prefer having periods of no load shedding and we cannot normalise this crisis
