A New Take on Shmear

If you’ve ever been to New York you know that a bagel with Shmear is the way of the city. In my Montreal home, it’s the way of the toddler.

Only the shmear is on the floor and not on a bagel. And it does not involve cream cheese.

“I can do it!”

“Yes, but this time mommy will do it”

“No, mama! Naya puede sola!” [No mama, Naya can do it alone]

“No esta ves” [not this time]

So what do you do? Wipe the shit off the floor, your daughter, your elbow, her shoes and carry on….but not before making a mental note to have self-deploying oxygen masks installed in your new bathroom that locks and self-cleans after each use.
