I Have a Phobia and It’s Called Baby Drool

My fear of drool may paralyze me once baby boy arrives.

One of my biggest fears of motherhood is having a drool-y baby. “But, Sujeiry,” you say, “babies drool. That’s just what they do.” I know! And it’s freaking me out!

I don’t know where this phobia stems from but saliva and I have never mixed. Case in point: my cousin, Blady’s wet kisses – and how I wipe my cheek right after he pecks it. You’d think he had malaria and needed to be quarantined. But, it’s not Blady’s fault that he has super full lips.

Same goes for making out. I like to french, but I don’t love it. Because, spit, saliva and sometimes, yes, drool. Have you ever made out with a guy and had to wipe your mouth? I have and it was disgusting. But, it wasn’t his fault I have super thin lips that can be swallowed with a lip lock.

As you see my fear of drool may paralyze me once baby boy arrives, especially when he starts teething. Teething babies are balls of drool. He’ll look like this.

Only less white. And I’ll react like this:

Unless, of course, I get help. Boo will clean up that drool, dammit! He’ll just have to – or our baby boy will drown in a sea of his own saliva! What will I do when Boo is at work or salsa dancing or, worse, when he finally says, “No more. Suck it up, woman.”? I need a backup. Mami would be my go-to but she lives in a far away land called New York, NY. She isn’t taking the Long Island Railroad to wipe up drool. She just won’t do. Bazzle Baby and Funkins, however, might just be my saviors.
