Casey, Pam (my mother in law), and I decided to go out to eat at Casa after work. Jack had just had a diaper change and had had a dirty diaper earlier, soooo I foolishly decided it would be okay to just take toys in the diaper bag. This decision was based on my growling belly, so it wasn't the brightest move. Anyway, we went to Casa and Jack was sitting calmly in the highchair. All of the sudden we look at him and he is straining like you wouldn't believe. So hard, in fact, that his eyes and face were turning red. "Uh oh!" I said as the reality of the situation started to sink in. We realize that he is filling up his diaper, but just decided to tough out the odor and change him when we got home.

That is.... until Pam noticed a little bloch of something green on Jack's arm. She said, "None of us ordered guacamole, did we?" She was right. She wiped it with her napkin and took one sniff and made a terrible face. We looked down and what to our suprise the entire high chair is full of green poop! Here we are in the middle of a restaurant with no wipes, no diapers, and no change of clothes. What now!!!

I pick him up and as fast as I can take him to the women's bathroom. Pam helps me undress him and we wash him in the sink! Yuk!! There is poop everywhere and we have a naked baby with nothing to put on him at all. I was having a serious white trash redneck moment as i wrap my naked son in paper towels and carry him out of the building. All the while trying to ignore all of the hidden giggles.

I take him to the truck, still naked mind you, to wait on Casey and Pam to pay and box up our food which we haven't gotten to eat yet. As we wait, Jack decides now would be a good time to pee while he is standing in my lap!! Now I have a naked baby and am wearing poop and pee.

Finally, they get to the car and we strap little naked Jack into his carseat and quickly drive home!!! This is definetly a tough lesson learned( although very funny after the fact). First RULE of parenting: NEVER NEVER leave home without a diaper, wipes, and a change of clothes NO MATTER WHAT!!!!

Oh you poor thing! Sounds like you've got all kinds of pooping horror stories to tell on Jack when he's older! Yes--ALWAYS carry a couple of changes of clothes, diapers, and wipes with you! I also keep a set in the car too and we've had to use them a lot too--that way if you forget to pack some extras, you'll always have what you need in the car.

OH girl! I bet that you stomach wasn't growling anymore! HA!
Sounds like Jack is not having the poopy issues anymore. :)

I can just picture you trying to get out the door with Jack wrapped up in a paper towel. That is hilarious!

Bless your heart! We had a similar situation happen at Legends. Mollie dirtied her diaper and it oozed out onto the seat. I noticed when I put my hand in it. YUCK! Well, I had a diaper and clothes, but no wipes. I have no idea why there weren't wipes. Luckily, they have deep sinks in the bathroom. Oh the joys of being a first time mom.

Haha! That same thing happend to me except I put him in the carseat with poop and green poop got all over the carseat and my car! I cried and cried but now I think it is so funny! I never go anywhere anymore without diapers and wipes!
