A promising beginning

Mackenzie woke up famished this morning, so I breastfed her before even changing her diaper.

That was the wrong choice.

Apparently her diaper could not hold another drop, because she soaked through her pajamas while drinking her breakfast.

So I cleaned her (very heavy) (and poopy) diaper up and put her straight in a bath.

That was the wrong choice.

She pooped in the bath (for the first time in her life).

I cleaned her up again and put her in fresh clothes.

That, too, was the wrong choice.

She promptly spit up all down the front of them.

I wasn’t sarcastic when I titled this post, however. This day will either get lots better or it’ll make one heck of a story. That’s a win-win situation in my book. Oh, and this day has another good thing going for it…

    I had one of these mornings recently, on our last day of a very long camping trip. Vienne went through four outfits by ten am. You wonder if stuff will ever stop coming out!

    I’ve taken that gamble with Quinn… do I change him before breakfast, and again right after? or do I wait until after breakfast and just change him once? sometimes you win that bet and have one less diaper to deal with, sometimes… well….

    Glad to see you found the up side to both possibilities.

    I love when days start that way~! We’ve had a few of those….not so much bodily fluids lately but where everyone is crying and needing a nap including mommy by 9 am. May your days be happier.
