The past couple of days have been deceptively beautiful. It looks nice and sunny outside, but it is actually windy and cold.
So my boys have been getting a little stir crazy after being able to go out and play last weekend. I called a friend and we decided to get together so our kids could play.
After Eli's morning nap I got everything together to head out the door. I had a limited window of playtime between Eli's morning and afternoon nap, so I was in a bit of a hurry to get there. You know how it is... putting shoes and socks on, packing up the diaper bag, getting snacks together, grabbing jackets, and carrying the small one and diaper bag out the door with a two-year-old in tow.
I got everything in the car and started to strap the boys in their carseats. It was then I noticed the distinctive odor of a poopy diaper.
Oh well! I thought. I'll just have to change Eli when we get there.
We arrived at my friends house and I grabbed the diaper bag and the boys. I left my jacket in the car because I didn't think I would need it, and we headed inside. As soon as everyone was settled, I checked Eli, only to find that he wasn't stinky.
Hmm... I thought. I know I smelled something. Maybe one of the boys just let a stinky one or something, they are boys after all.
We played and had a great time. I didn't think any more about the stinky smell, until I went to put the boys back in the car to go home. As soon as I opened the car door, I smelled that same yucky smell. I checked Eli again and he was still clean!
What on earth? Why am I smelling stinky diapers?
At this point I was a bit confused...
until I noticed that not only was my jacket in the front seat of the car, but also a plastic bag containing dirty diapers that I was going to throw in the trash can on my way to the car! Obviously that didn't happen in my hurry to get out the door.
I promptly threw the diapers in my friend's can and had a good laugh about it on the way home.
