A strange thing happens when you become a parent, and it’s not the kind you read about in parenting books – in fact, you might not have any warning of it at all. When your child does something disgusting, it won’t phase you. 
7 Totally Gross Things Youll Do When Youre A Parent
That’s right. Picture the grossest, most unpalatable bodily function – you’re thinking of poo, wee or sick, aren’t you? Now, accept the fact that your child is going to do one, or all, of these things on you, at some point in their young life, and hear this: you probably will not mind. You might not even notice. 
In my experience, the same doesn’t seem to apply to spouses, or your parents, or your siblings, or anyone else you love dearly. It’s unique to having kids – and is very handy, as kids do it a lot. Related... Travelling With Kids: Your Ultimate Survival Guide And 10 Must-Haves This doesn’t translate to other people’s kids, though. Oh, no. If another kid has a runny nose – the kind that looks like two candles hanging from both of their nostrils – well, the sight of that makes me gag. But my own kids? I don’t mind at all. I’d lick it off, if I had to. 
Here are seven of the grossest things you’ll find happen when you’re a parent.You’ll accept a bogey from your child as a present. My three-year-old son does this all the time, usually adding the words, “Here you go!” – and when I look around to see what he’s trying to give me, it’s a crusty bogey. Every. Time. I’m so used to it by now, it doesn’t phase me at all. I just take what I’m offered and go and get a tissue. You will receive a sneeze into your open mouth, and laugh. Just the other day, my son sneezed. No big deal, you might think, except we were face-to-face at the time, playing a tickling game. I was laughing, which means that the trajectory of his sneeze followed a direct route: from his mouth to mine. He found it hilarious, of course. You will go out with sick on your clothes. This applies to parents of younger babies and infants, but when your child is drinking (mostly) milk, there’s a lot of ‘posseting’ going on – when your baby brings a small amount of milk back up during, or after, a feed. There’s also sometimes projectile vomit. Either way, you’ll get it on your clothes, and like any self-respecting busy mum or dad, you will wipe it off and go out anyway, then spend the rest of the night pretending you don’t smell. Related... These Metal Dads Are A Bunch Of Massive Softies – And We Love It You’ll find yourself eating soggy leftovers. Life as a parent mostly involves cooking a bunch of different baked goods that your child will or will not deign to eat, then picking up the bits that have been thrown to the floor and eating them. Sometimes, they will be pre-chewed. This has happened to me at children’s birthday parties too many times to count: I’ve gone in for a cheeky prawn cocktail crisp, only to discover it’s already been licked. When it’s your own child, you’ll stuff it in your mouth and eat it anyway. Your child will wet the bed and you will sleep in it.I recently got into bed and realised the mattress was damp and smelled faintly of urine. This is because my three-year-old son toddles in, most nights, and clambers in beside me to sleep... but not before he’s removed his nappy and pyjama bottoms. More often than not, he’ll leave a circular patch of wee. And I will notice this, be too tired to change the bed, and sleep on it anyway. Related... This Is Why Kids Love Talking About Poo And Bums So Much You will get covered in human poo, accept it and move on.When my daughter was six weeks old, we took her on a trip to the Tate Modern. Her dad went into the men’s toilets to change her nappy, but it was one of those nappies... and she wasn’t finished. Yep. He had to catch it in his open hand, like a cup. He later realised he had a tiny speck of chocolate on his wrist, and licked it off (spoiler: it wasn’t chocolate). You will suck out your child’s snot when they have a cold.If ever a subject was divisive, it’s this. I’ve had full-scale wars with other parents who think this is going too far. But hear me out: you don’t have to do it directly with your mouth. I mean, you can, but I use one of these – a nasal aspirator. It has a little plastic tube you suck, with the other end placed at your child’s nostril. A piece of foam stops the snot from going into your mouth and down your throat. If a better or more satisfying invention exists, I do not know what it is. It will change your life. You’re welcome. Related...

Star Wars Director Says It's About Time A Woman Makes A Star Wars Movie
Jan 02, 2024
Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Sharmeed Obaid-Chinoy is directing an upcoming Star Wars movie that brings back Daisy Ridley in the role of Rey. Obaid-Chinoy will become the first woman to direct a Star Wars film, dating back to the franchise's origins in the 1970s. Speaking about this, Obaid-Chinoy told CNN that she is "very thrilled" to make the movie and create something that is "very special.""We're in 2024 now, and I think it's about time we had a woman come forward to shape the story in a galaxy far, far away," she said.Obaid-Chinoy won Best Documentary, Short Subjects Academy Awards for Saving Face (2012) and A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness (2015).In 2020, Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy told the BBC that a woman would eventually direct a Star Wars movie, saying that would "absolutely" happen, "without question." Victoria Mahoney was a second unit director on The Rise of Skywalker, but a woman has never claimed a top directing credit on a Star Wars movie.On the TV side of things, The Mandalorian has featured a number of female directors, including Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard. Chow went on to direct the Obi-Wan TV series, too.Another high-profile franchise that has never had a female director is James Bond. Producer Barbara Broccoli and Skyfall director Sam Mendes have both said they want to see a woman direct a future 007 film.As for Obaid-Chinoy's Star Wars movie, little is known about it apart from the fact that Ridley will come back to play Rey. It is expected that this film will be the first of the three new Star Wars films to come to theaters, possibly releasing in December 2025.According to a report, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight is writing the Rey movie, taking over for Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson.

NBA Names Clare Akamanzi CEO Of NBA Africa
Jan 02, 2024 15:29
The NBA named Clare Akamanzi – an accomplished business executive and international trade and investment lawyer – as CEO of NBA Africa. Akamanzi will start her position on Jan. 23, 2024, and report to NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum. In this role, Akamanzi will oversee the NBA’s business and basketball development efforts in Africa and will be responsible for continuing to grow the popularity of basketball, the NBA and the Basketball Africa League (BAL) across the continent, including through grassroots basketball development, media distribution, corporate partnerships, and social responsibility initiatives that improve the livelihoods of African youth and families. For the last six and a half years, Akamanzi was CEO of Rwanda Development Board (RDB), where she spearheaded Rwanda’s economic development by enabling private sector growth. Under Akamanzi’s leadership, RDB implemented several business policy reforms and initiatives that led to significant investment and development for the country, including through partnerships with the BAL, Arsenal FC, Paris Saint-Germain FC, FC Bayern Munich and TIME Magazine, among others. “Clare’s business acumen, international experience and familiarity with basketball and the NBA make her the ideal executive to lead our business in Africa,” says Tatum. “NBA Africa and the Basketball Africa League are well-positioned for continued growth, and under Clare’s leadership we believe these initiatives will transform economies, communities and lives across the continent.” “I’ve seen firsthand how sports can positively impact businesses, families and communities in Africa, and the NBA and the BAL are a perfect example of that,” says Akamanzi. “The NBA has done an incredible job growing basketball and the economy around it across the continent, and I’m excited about the enormous opportunities ahead to build on that momentum.” Previously, Akamanzi was Chief Operating Officer of RDB and Head of Strategy and Policy Unit, Office of the President of the Republic of Rwanda. She has extensive international trade, business and diplomatic experience, having previously worked for the Rwandan Government at the World Trade Organization in Geneva, Switzerland and at the Rwandan Embassy in London, England. Akamanzi has worked or studied in seven different countries and holds an honorary LLD from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, in recognition of her work in Rwanda. She earned a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she was the recipient of three prestigious awards for academic excellence and distinguished contribution to the community: the Lucius N. Littauer Fellows Award, the Raymond & Josephine Vernon Award and the Robert Kennedy Public Service Award. In addition, Akamanzi holds a Master of Laws degree in international trade and investments from the University of Pretoria in South Africa, and a Bachelor of Laws degree from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Akamanzi has served on several company boards, including the World Health Organization (WHO) Foundation, ECOBANK and Aviation, Travel and Logistics (ATL) company. She was recognized by Forbes as one of Africa’s Top 50 Powerful Women in 2020.
