Remember When I... (A Mom Fail).

Left Carter with Daddy in the waiting room of the doctor's office while Mommy ran in for a "quick" appointment?



And swore up and down that the diaper bag was stocked with all of the necessities? Diapers, wipes, extra onesies, butt cream, toys and blankies?

But then Carter poo'd one of his infamous loads?



And Daddy was forced to change Carter in the lobby of the medical building?

And wipe his nakey hiney with... PACIFIER WIPES?

Because Mommy forgot to replenish the travel wipes container.

Did you know that pacifier wipes are approximately one-eighth the size of a real wipe?

I didn't know either.

But hey, it worked.

Nice improvisation, Daddy. Always thinking on your feet. You rock!

  3. Reminds me of when I went for my 6-week postpartum check-up. Connor came with me to my appointment, two hours from home. I timed it perfectly that I would feed before leaving, arrive early to the appt., feed in the parking garage, and head to my appointment. I brought plenty of clothes for Connor. While feeding him, he pooped... on himself and me! Changing him the backseat, both diaper and clothes while it is 100 degrees outside? Not fun! Plus the obvious poop stain on my shorts. Sigh.. I am sure there will be more stories like this to come!

  7. Oops! My poor husband would have been S.O.L since we "rough it" and don't even own pacifier wipes.

  12. LOL! You were just breaking him in. From now on, he can NEVER complain about changing a dirty diaper because you can always say "Well honey, at least you had wipes this time!" :)
