How'd that happen?!?

Don't forget to enter my Joseph giveaway HERE!!

Ok...yesterday was Columbus Day and the kids
didn't have school. So being the mildly insane
good mom I am, I decided to take the kids on an outing.

Now, having kids of such varying age means that I
have to get creative with our outings.

So we went to lunch, shopping at the Aero outlet,
and {grimace} Chuck E. Cheese.

Shopping to make the older girls happy, and Chuck E.
to appease the boys-mine+Steven. 6 kids total.

Neither is my idea of fun.
{come on...dragging 4 kids 5 and under shopping
and then dragging ME and the 10 and 12 year old
around Chuck E. Cheese??
Nope. No stress possibilities at all.}

Throw in how long it takes for us to load and unload
everyone and monsoon-like storms by the end of the
adventure, and it was one heck of a day!

But I did get some great buys at the outlet, and it
really was a good day altogether. Everyone behaved
very well, and Noah only wandered off at Chuck E.'s and
had to be brought back to me crying twice. Seriously.

The funny for the day happened when we pulled up to
Chick-Fil-A for lunch. Ashton went to unbuckle Emmie
from her carseat. Then we heard,
"EMMIE! Where is your diaper??"
After some deep breaths and prayers for composure I
went to Emmie's seat to see what she could
possibly be talking about.

Sure enough, Emmie was buck naked under her dress.
All I could say was,
"How in the world did THAT happen?!?"

Taking a page from Noah's book, she had apparently removed her
diaper at the house before Ashton put her in the van.

And somehow Ashton never noticed.

Thank God she didn't have any bodily functions
on the way there!! That would have been pretty much
par for the course around here.

Ugh. Did I already mention duct tape for diapers??

Don't forget, today's the last day to enter for my

That is too funny, very lucky as well :)
I hear you about Chuck E, my 4 year old just yesterday just asked if he could have his next birthday there, mmmm let me think, nope. Watching a couple ok, watching 10+, I can't even imagine.

Hahahahahahha! Love that she went sans diaper all that time. Really good thing she didn't need one!

YOu are so brave and the diaper dilemmas are cracking me up. Too funny...I have never heard of such things.

These diaper funnies could be put in a comic strip Jennifer! So funny! I could see how easy it would be to not notice a diaper on a little baby girl with a dress on though. That would be an easy overlook! But like you said, good thing it wasn't cold and breezy in your van. LOL
