    Oh, that reminds me of my first outing after my firstborn. My sister took me to the mall to pick up some baby things that I still needed. I strapped the carrier to my chest and plopped the baby in it and we went busily on our way. After we had been shopping for about half an hour my sister looked at me and her eyes widened with horror. All down the front of me....bright mustard yellow poop....not being able to see over the baby in front of me I hadn't even known it was there or for how long I had been like that!

    Oh my gosh!!! haha! I am still laughing!!! That does sound like something that would happen to my hubby!!

    I have a funny story that happened to him last weekend.

    We went to our favorite Mexican place during half time of the Buckeye's game against Wisconsin last weekend, El Vacaros.
    Great place!! After a rather hurried dinner, we wanted to get back for the fourth quarter, my hubby got up to go to the bathroom. My daughter Sidney, starts yelling for her Dad asking the 25 or so people around us, "Where'd Daddy go?". Well to make her hush up I told her Daddy went to the potty. She smiled at me and then started screaming and I mean screaming to the people around her, "Daddy go popo in the potty, yeah". (We are potty training her and say Yeah whenever she goes potty). She screamed it until he came back. Everyone was laughing so hard. My husband was so red!
