this morning mylin and i got to spend some quality time with my sister-in-law leslie, and her 5 month old son, jace
we try to get together often to have some mommy/newborn bonding time – but this is difficult with two teeny babies!
this morning we met at a local bakery downtown
while enjoying our cinnamon rolls and the warm atmosphere, we traded stories of being a new mom, how we’re balancing school, time with our husbands, and a social life admidst our kids needs…how we sometimes feel out of control emotionally and laughing, a lot (like usual)
as i was bouncing mylin around to help ease the pain of her hiccups i noticed her morning relief rippling against my belly…
i knew she’d need changed, but there was no place to change her, so leslie suggested just sticking her in her carseat
i think leslie may always regret that decision.
as i peeled off her pants, i noticed the poo leaking out one side of her onesie!
i quickly slid a changing pad under her and grabbed my wipes as leslie got jace situated in his carseat so she could assist me
the poo kept coming out and getting all over her clothes, the carseat and my hands!
we ended up stripping her completely nude – and while leslie held her up for my i did my best to ‘wash’ her whole poopy body off with wipes – during which i realized i had run out and had to borrow leslie’s (luckily i was with another diaper bag mom!)
i used my last diaper i had to cover her back up while leslie searched for a replacement outfit…
during the entire poo-shenanigans, the guy behind the counter just watched and chuckled, offering me a plastic bag to dispose of all our mess (sidenote: bag said ‘thank you’ on it…hahaha)
as i dressed mylin back-up, wonderful aunt leslie used her tide pen to wash off the carseat strap, which innocently got in the way of the morning’s explosion!
when i was finished i was sweating!!!
leslie and i will never forget our memorable breakfast out with the babes – and may never share our breakfast’s out of our house’s again!
