A Simple Trip to the Grocery...

...isn't so simple anymore! Will and I went to Kroger earlier and had quite a trip! Before we left I changed his diaper. It wasn't very dirty but I didn't want him to have to sit in it while we ran errands. Little did I know he had a surprise in store for me! We got to the store after going by the bank. As I was preparing to get him out of his seat and put him in the Peanut Shell, I heard a tell-tale signal of the completion of digestion. Again, not wanting my baby to be dirty for long, I decided to go ahead and change him before we went inside. We got to the back of the Tahoe and I witnessed what has been aptly named a 'diaper blowout'. Lets just say I was thankful for my prior wardrobe choice of a onesie with matching pants today because if not, it would have been everywhere! I didn't even know where to start! The more I wiped, the more there was to clean. It took me a minute to figure out that I had to roll up the bottoms of his onesie to get it over his head without getting more poo all over him. I was also grateful I had bought a little roll of plastic baggies for such a situation. 10 minutes and a new diaper and outfit later, we finally made it in the store. But not before he spit up as I put him in the sling. After we got home I was washing my hands in the bathroom and noticed yellow all over my gray shirt. That's right, he got me too! Luckily the sling had covered it while we were in the store and I was wearing a non-important outfit. I just can't imagine taking care of that with another child in tow!

That's hilarious! We've all been there! Just remember that Baby #2 will come well after the Explosive Poo/Spit-up Phase. Also, ALWAYS put on the matching pants so it can can catch the poo. We learned the hard way with Jake on that one!

LOL! I have been in that position SOOO many times. You don't even know where to start! Seems like Asher went through a phase where it happend a lot. His aim was to the side or something. I'm glad he's got it more medial now:) Good luck with poopie boy!
