Okay so why haven't I learned yet to carry like five (5) burp cloths around with me??
I was standing in line tonight at the picnic mentioned in the last entry and my husband was with my older kids letting them play on the playground. So he had the four older kids and I was by myself with my 4 month old. I left my diaper bag by our blanket which wasn't close by at all. I tend to hold my son in my left arm his tummy facing away from me. My arm started to feel wet and slimy. I looked over his shoulder and he had spit up down the front of his clothes and then all over my left hand and then onto my right arm. YUCK!!! I didn't have a burp cloth or a rag no blanket, no tissues, napkins or anything on me to wipe up this mess. Not wanting to lose my place in line, and not having any of my other family members close by, I'll be somewhat resourceful -- I reached down and wiped the spit off my hand and arm using the grass I was standing on. Even being a brand new mother of a fifth child and having what I would call some experience with babies you would think that by now I might be a pro at this and never forget to bring anything for the baby, that he might need.
