Friday Fails - Diaper Bag Fail

I pride myself on having a pretty well stocked diaper bag. Diapers, wipes, snacks, bottles and maybe even a toy or two. I also keep a change of clothes in the bottom, you know, for emergencies. Well, this past Sunday we had one of those emergencies...

We were out at the Olive Garden for Mother's Day and ended up waiting over an hour to eat because it was just crazy. Well, in that time we had a major diaper leakage. So, I grabbed Amelia and rushed to the back of the crowed restaurant, holding her in front of me since she was soaked, getting stared at by everyone I passed because we looked ridiculous. Well, it got worse...


The spare clothes I had in the diaper bag? Yeah, they were fleece, Christmas jammies. As I was changing my baby into Christmas jammies, her father yelled into the ladies room, "Shelley? Shelley? We got a table. It is right out to the left. I'll wait there". At about this time a woman came out of a stall, laughing, and telling me that we have all been there but when she was there years ago, she didn't have a change of clothes so, as bad as it seemed, I at least had that going for me. She was right!

Note to Self: when re-stocking the diaper bag, check to make sure the spare clothes have been updated for the appropriate season/time of year!

LOL, I've done that too :) Either out of season clothes or ones that are outgrown. Kids look cut in diapers and socks though! :D
