lesson in parenting...

the day piper turned 6 months old was a Sunday... It being such a special day, i dressed Piper up in the sweetest pink and black striped shirt with a bow and black leggings...before we left we looked in the mirror and i told her how beautiful she looked :) When we got to church as usual piper was sitting on my lap as i Internet surfed while daddy was running around getting ready for the morning...all of a sudden i "feel" her pooping i immediately stand up to go get her bag to change her...the second i stood up i looked down and.....poop was oozing out the back of her leggings...i am not joking...oozing!! I panicked!!!! I yelled for Jake and told him we had a major crisis!! we ran out of the room *like crazy-first-time-parents-style* took her to a Sunday school class room and stripped her down! At this point her beautiful pink and black striped shirt and leggings were COVERED in poop! It took practically an entire tub of wipes to clean her up...by this point i realized...being the mother of the year that i am...that i did not have a change of clothes with me!!!!!!!! I have never carried around a change of clothes with me!?! In 6 months, nothing like this has ever happened!?! I *in tears* looked to Jake and told him that i had to take this precious *poopie* little naked girl out in the freezing cold to take her home for new clothes :( when Jake reminded me just to run down to the nursery, they have reserve clothes for this very occasion! OHHH thank goodness!!! So *naked* piper and i go to the nursery...and this is what the had for my little birthday girl....


I was a little embarrassed to think that people were thinking i was the kind of mom, that puts her beautiful little girl in a blue, over sized, Eskimo Joe's, sweatshirt onsie for church (i promise im not!)....but at the same time overwhelmed with gratitude to the lades at the nursery front desk who helped a un-prepared momma in a time of need (they are blog readers...so THANK YOU!!)...so the lesson....
-always have an extra set of clothes with you...ALWAYS!! :)

by the way...i still thought she was beautiful!! :)

Hahahahaha!!! Pipe is learning from Liam! Thank GOD for those diapers, though... they really hold stuff in! We had a day like that once when I had brought an extra outfit for him, but I didn't realize he had grown out of it in the ONE WEEK that he didn't wear it! Oh my, I was just soooo embarrassed! Liam looked like a sausage stuffed into a casing. I still shudder when I think of that... now, we always have an outfit that fits with us.

BTW, I'm going to mention this to the church when I go on Sunday. I don't think we have any backups there at all!

What a cute and endearing story. I have carried extra clothes from day because Miss Kennedy enjoys pooping on her clothes! Piper looks beauitful in her Eskimo Joes outfit!

Christy, how a baby/mommy poop crisis story made my day... I will NEVER know, but it did! :) And yes, she DID still look beautiful; you both did! Love you girl!
