Car Trouble

On the way home from Gammie and Grandad's yesterday {I told you we visit a lot}, Gillian Grace and I had a major blowout on the highway.


Only it's not what you think...
{Or maybe after reading my previous posts and knowing GG's track record, it is...}


Blame it on poor engineering or my diaper changing execution, but for whatever reason Gillian Grace's diaper was simply no match for the massive pooptastrophe she had just minutes from home.

I didn't have to look to know what GG was up to in the backseat. The grunts and groans loud enough to make even the Incredible Hulk offer up a congratulatory high five were the only indication I needed to know that Daddy would be getting much more than he bargained for when he greeted us for hugs in the driveway.

As for the collateral damage, well let's just say my husband and I are far more capable than BP and together we were able to keep the spill contained to just her carseat.

Leave it to Gillian Grace to make even the most mundane of car trips exciting. It's just too bad AAA doesn't cover this type of blowout!

Haha! My Grace has never had a blowout like this, but my niece has, and I remember 4 adults attempting to change the poor child on the hood of our car...She ended up wearing my hubby's white t-shirt for the rest of the trip because we had no change of clothes! Little ones do keep things exciting! :)

Oh no! Lallie had one of those, in a restaurant, while sitting on my lap, where there wasn't a changing table in the bathroom. Those are always fun! Hey, you woulnd't be a mommy if you hadn't had one and handled it with grace. (no pun intended :-)

Hahaha!!! I love your BP analogy in there!!

Poor GG....That's gotta be uncomfortable to them!

Oh girl! I empathize! We've been there more times than I can count. I don't think diapering skills have anything to do with it, it's just one of those parenting right of passage things. Yuck. Speaking of dirty diapers...there is a stench sitting next to me that needs attending too...

You are so funny! I love reading you re-tell the experience. You poor things! Weve been there. My daughter never really had many blow outs, but with my son it is a regular occurance. I have had him on my lap before and even had it all over my khaki pants! Lovely!

Have a nice day!

LOL! I am sitting here trying not spit coffee through my nose. That is hilarious! Glad to hear that it was contained to the carseat. Have a good Friday!
