Recent Adventures in Mommyhood...

Being a mom is, by far, the best thing ever. That being said, motherhood definitely brings with it some, ahem, moments.

Take Friday for example. I had to be up super early, and ended up getting dressed in the dark. I had bought a new button-up shirt the day before, but had neglected to try it on in store seeing as how I had a stroller with a three-month-old, a three-year-old and the world's largest diaper bag all attached to my body somehow. Not a scene one wants to maneuver into a dressing room, ya know? Anyhow, I threw on my new shirt and a pair of shorts, and then went about my business before A got up to nurse. Then I loaded her up and into the carseat, and off we went ahead of schedule so that we'd have time to stop and gas the car. Sounds simple enough, right? Wrong. The guy at the gas station (why oh WHY do gas stations that make you go inside to pay still exist?!) was being particularly nice to me, but naively, I just thought he was a nice guy trying to brighten my day. HA! What I realized when I got to work and stepped into the flourescent lights of the bathroom is that my shirt was entirely see through. That wouldn't have been that big of a deal, seeing that my nursing bra leaves just about everything to the imagination, but I had forgotten to latch it after nursing A. Holy moly.

Then there was yet another humiliating moment yesterday. At church. On Easter for crying out loud. Could there have possibly been more people in one building at one time to witness said incident? Anyway, Ava was sitting on my lap, intensely captivated by the light fixtures on the ceiling, when I felt my lap get warm. Apparently her diaper didn't feel like doing it's job, and decided to bunch up in such a way that when Ava peed, it ran out the side, leaving her diaper practically dry, and my lap extremely wet. To make matters worse, this happened directly prior to lining up for communion, so I got to take communion looking like I peed myself. Fantastic.

There is a lot that motherhood has taught me in these past few months, but one of the most important and critical lessons? Laughing at yourself :)


  1. HAHAHAHAHA!!!! Thanks for the laugh, I needed that!! :) I always have spit-up and drool on my shirt and I've pretty much stopped caring about my appearance. But that shirt story is too funny. A nursing tank or regular cami under it would solve the problem for next time. Maybe we need to start carrying around an extra change of clothes for ourselves, not just for the babies!

  2. Poor thing, lol! Presley's diaper did the same thing except I was at home...not in public. I'm not sure why or how, but her pee literally poured right out of the top of the diaper while she was nursing???

  3. I'm sure this wasn't funny at the time, but wow your gas station shirt story was hilarious! Good for you for keeping a happy attitude. :o)
