Target is her happy place

Ok, you know how "they say" that when you are most comfortable, that's when you need to um, use the bathroom? For some it's when they have their morning coffee, for others it's just getting home after being gone for a while... For Grace- it's Target.

Here's the story. We (Shane, Gracie and I) were on our way to Target yesterday to buy Gracie a jumper to sit in. We got in the car and headed to Goshen. When we got into town, I heard some tell tale noises coming from the back seat. Shane says "oh, do we need to stop before we get to target?" we decide to pull into a vaccuum shop place since we need new bags for our vaccuum anyway. He goes in to buy them and I tackle Gracie. I pull her out and look at the top of her pants.. Nothing! That's a great sign, but then I notice her shoes...POOP on her shoe! She had blew out the LEG of her diaper! It was ALL the way down her leg on her shoes and socks. BLAH! We got a few cleaner bags from the store and took off her clothes and changed the mess... (and by mess, I mean MESS, it was everywhere!!!!)

Oh, but the story doesn't end there. Gracie's mom... in her brillance just grabbed the little diaper bag when they left the house. That meant that they had TWO diapers and a small thing of wipes and NO OTHER CLOTHES! yes, that's right, no clothes. So we clean her up and put her back in her seat in her diaper, turn the heat up and head to Target. Shane went in and bought her a new outfit and I fed her in the car and waited. He did pick out a super cute one though, and even got socks and some onesies (good job honey!) I wanted to go pick them out, but he said since I came unprepared, I had to deal with him shopping! :)

So... the end of the story is that Gracie's mom has learned to ALWAYS be prepared even for a "quick trip" somewhere. :)

I think you should have titled this one, "Shit Happens"

This happened to me the other day. I am not kidding you when I say that I totally could have reused the diaper he had on. I am not sure how he ended up with all of the poop outside the diaper, but he did....I like to think of it as talent.

Too funny!!! I know not to you...But I have been there with 4 kids, so now I can laugh! :-) What is amazing, is that she totally missed the diaper...Pretty impressive. Amazing how having a baby, or toddler can produce a whole post on just poop--and it is entertaining! :-)
