Mistakes moms make

Last year, my husband captured this picture of my children, holding my Christmas gift, a week before Christmas. He emailed it to me at work, where I proceeded to squeal with joy, because that's what I do every time I see a little blue box. And oh, yeah - because my boys are just so darn cute in the picture!



This year, on Christmas Eve, after our festivities at my parent's house, we hung out around our tree before putting the boys to bed. My boys gave me a little blue box to open up, and excited as I was, I wanted to 're-capture' the great picture that was taken last year. For some reason, my youngest son wasn't in a very co-operative mood, almost refusing to sit with brother for the picture. I had no idea why, until later... you can see in the picture for yourself why he was so uncomfortable - in the rush to leave my parents house, in all the excitement on Christmas Eve, we forgot to put a diaper back on our baby. Oops.



I discovered this when I brought him upstairs to put on his pajamas. I took off his pants and... well, let's just say... it was very messy. Very messy indeed. And not just pee-pee messy.

Now I know why my baby was in such a bad mood - and I'll try to never forget to put a diaper on my baby again!

So cute! We've all been there. I went out once having forgotten to feed my son breakfast. Mother Of The Year I am not.

That's hilarious. Poor kid (and poor parents). At least it's a story you can save for future Christmases. Remember the time...

Christine said...

Oh thanks for that lovely laugh on a morning when I needed it! A fun memory for you :-)

This is TOO funny. I feel so bad for you! The other day Sophia took Miles diaper off and put her princess underpants on him. They were both so quiet and happy playing in her undies! Thankfully there were no accidents but it SO could have happened. Poor little guy.

Still the blue box can cheer anyone up!

We've all done it! Poor little boy though :)

blueviolet said...

That is so cute!!! What a mess and that second picture is hilarious!

Neena said...

oh, have I been there!! I almost want to say 'poor mama' rather than 'poor baby.' Being on the cleanup end is no fun!

Pres. Kathy said...

We have all done those mistakes - don't worry! :-) I am sure it was WAY worse for you then for him. These pictures will be a nice memory to show your kids one day!

Christiane said...

What a great story Loulou :) I bet he was a little uncomfortable. We're not perfect and we all do the best we can! It's nice to read these posts because it makes me realise I'm a normal everday MOM :)

They are so cute!

A Crafty Mom said...

I wish I couldn't relate, but I totally CAN!!! Usually this is b/c she takes her diaper off on her own and then puts her pants back on . . . but I am still cleaning up the mess all the same :)

Freddae' said...

I don't know what you're talking about. I have NEVER done anything like that! ;-) Ha, ha!

PRICELESS...absolutely priceless...

Elaine A. said...

Whoopsie!! I'm guessing that's a mistake you only make ONCE! HA HA HA!

T Rex Mom said...

Both are extremely charming photos. Do tell - what was in the little blue box?

Lady Mama said...

Awww! You know, the only thing is, you're setting a precedent to receive a little blue box every year! ;)

CaraBee said...

Ha! That sounds like something I would do. In fact, I think I have. Poor kid, he really doesn't look happy in that picture!

But yay for blue boxes!! They have a way of making a mom forgetful. :)

Mom2Miles said...

LOL! Too funny!!

An honest mistake that I keep expecting to make myself! :)

Shana said...

Betcha never do that again! LOL

Holly at Tropic of Mom said...

Ha! Ouch. Ew.

I got a blue box, too, but it had a porcelain Beatrix Potter sippy cup inside for my baby. Who gives a baby porcelain?!

Shannon @ AnchorMommy said...

Oh no! Whoops! A prime example of what the holidays can do to a person! Sorry to hear about the resulting mess. Yikes.

Diva Ma @ Mommy Fabulous said...

Awww! Poor little man! But the photo is gonna be hilarious when he's a teen!

Theta Mom said...

LOL! Classic!!! And that first picture is so AWESOME!

Andrea (ace1028) said...

Oh, poor baby. Poor mommy, too! Great shots, though, and that first one is too precious!

Krystyn said...

OMG...that is hilarious...and it isn't.

Hope what was in the box was worth it.
