I’d like to offer you a parenting tip today.
I took this photo a couple of months ago. Just because I want to remember the rolls.
There’s just nothing cuter than a baby girl in a dress.
The chubby legs. The cute tush. The femininity.
She inherited her thighs from me. One day, she will not thank me.
One of the best parts of all those little girly dresses is the diaper covers.
You know, because they coordinate.
We all know how important that is.
The other day I was in a hurry to pick up my older kids from VBS. I had about 57 seconds to change a diaper and shove her pudgy feet into her shoes.
I quickly changed my squirmy girl and forgot to put her diaper cover back on.
Maybe because it would take too long or because cute doesn’t matter when you’re in a hurry.
We will never know.
I grabbed a shoe and realized I dropped the other one somewhere in the house.
After a quick shoe hunt, I grabbed her up and decided she could ride with one shoe on and I would put the other one on at the church.
But. Something. Happened. During. That. 57. Seconds.
Because when I got to VBS and reached to unbuckle my child from her car seat, not only was her diaper cover missing, so was her diaper.
She was nekid. At VBS.
Under that cute dress.
So, here’s my tip: diaper covers are not for cute only. They are actually functional in keeping the toddler from removing her diaper while Mommy is not looking.
While I realize this isn’t exactly an earth-shattering tip and even considered obvious by some (ahem, hubby), this is my third kid and honestly the first time we’ve gone to church with an exposed, um, bottom.
So, I just thought I’d share.
You are welcome.
I’m here to serve you.
