Motherhood Changes You

When I see a sign like this, I don’t think of great furniture deals. Instead, I reach frantically for the wipes and pray that I’ve got a spare change of clothes in the car.

STOREWIDE? Are you kidding me? How many wipes do you think that would take?

Well, at least they let you know where NOT to shop that day! (That must've been one BIG baby!)

Oh Kathryn, when you will you cease to make me laugh? Hopefully NEVER!

Only you could see a sign saying "blowout" and think of a massive diaper explosion!

Okay. I had to read the sign TWICE before I realized what you were talking about. Not because I am not a mom, but because I love Bass. And I dont' care how many wipes it would take if it meant I could have some rockin' new sandals for cheap.

You made me snort (and I needed TWO changes of clothes today...which was unfortunate, because I am just not that prepared.
