Dummies Guide to Parenting

A few months ago I had just gotten home from work as Taya was starting to wake up from a nap. She started screaming so Cameron went and got her, brought her downstairs and said "why is she all wet??" I figured she probably had just been sweating, so I started to take her clothes off when all of the sudden... "Cameron, you forgot to put a diaper on her!" He couldn't believe it and I couldn't either! We both laughed about it for the longest time, and pretty much still do!

..................................

Today has been quite the day, but this topped it off... I've been dog sitting for my sister the last couple of days and Walter (Waltipoo the Maltipoo) and Taya love to play together. It's hilarious, but that's another story... When Taya woke up from her nap I layed her down to change her, but she was so much more interested in playing with Waltipoo that she wouldn't hold still at all. She's had a diaper rash for a few days so I thought I'd let her play for a minute and air out her rash. Her and Walti were chasing each other around so I decided to hurry and finish my makeup. Probably ten minutes later I picked up Taya, who was wearing a cute, flowery dress, brought her downstairs, put her in her high chair and started feeding her delicious sweet potato mush, when all of the sudden water started dripping from her seat. I was puzzled for a minute, trying to remember if I had already given her her sippy cup when it hit me... I forgot to put her diaper on!!! And no that wasn't water, it was pee. I was wondering why Taya's face went blank... that's why. I started laughing out loud and immediately had to call Cam and apologize for giving him so much crap about his diaper incident so long ago! We're fantastic parents, aren't we! I guess we've both learned a good lesson from all of this, let's just hope it doesn't happen again! And also, if anyone would like to purchase this book for us we probably could use it... a lot. Thanks! I just hope that it mentions in here to use diapers AT ALL TIMES!

That is hilarious!!!! I bet Cam loved this story. I remember your dad tending you kids while I went to get groceries. I came home to news papers under Jenna while he was attempting to change her diaper. I thought that was funny too. Oh, I'm sure some people could write a book. You two are cute parents.

Ok that just made my day. I seriously just laughed by myself forever about it. That is so great! I love it! Its nice to hear other parents do silly stuff. :)

News papers under my bum Mom? How embarrassing! Great story though. Poor Taya was probably a bit confused. I guess you won't be airing out that rash again in the future, will ya? :)
