Thank goodness it happened today

Today we had our own little comedy of errors.

I will preface this by saying Henry only poops once a day. Weird, I think, but not outside the realm of normal. So, as you can imagine, when he poops it's.... epic. Well today he was a little fussy so I put him in the swing so I could clean up from breakfast. When I hear that sound. You mommies out there know 'the sound'. So I go over and pick him up only to find that I can see it has leaked up the front of the diaper. This is never a good sign, my friends. It leaked up the front and out the legs. At this exact moment I think of this.

It's everywhere, swing needs to be washed, everything Henry is wearing might as well be burned. I've gone through about 8 baby wipes and he starts to pee. At this point I carry him into the kitchen and put him in the sink. Now that he's all squeaky clean I wrap him in a dish towel and bring him back to the changing table on the pack n play. As I'm carrying him across the room he throws up.


All I could do was laugh. I mean, really, it doesn't ever happen all at once like that! So Henry is here, naked under this blanket because I'm running upstairs to get him some clothes... while I'm at it I might as well do a load of laundry because I'd rather eat irresponsibly raised pork than clean everything he just soiled by hand!

Jack remained blissfully ignorant. Lucky him!

I know I said I washed him in the sink.... but just to be absolutely sure.

Also, lets not have a repeat tomorrow. Yes, it was very funny, but tomorrow is Mommy's birthday and that would be not so nice. Thanks.

Ah, so that's what you meant when you said "Really Henry, more poop!?"

Hilarious! I mean, probably not quite so much for you at the time, but really, I'm laughing with you. Because it could happen to any of us...

I remember the times my girls had their first "exploding diapers". Good times! Thank God that stuff doesn't happen all the time!
