Apologies, but I had a day from heck - so this is short but risque sweet.

This is gonna be one of those “names changed to protect the innocent” deals where I get to pick out some aliases for some folks I dearly love.


Crazy Love


So… meet Great-Uncle Jasper and Great-Aunt Daisy. They are both in their later years… 70’s, possibly 80's?

Itty Bit was only a few months old when they hosted a large holiday feast at their home. And as all tiny babes do, Itty Bit generously provided a terrific public blowout.

It was a doozy. Through the onesie, through the pants, down to his socks… you get the picture.

Great-Uncle Jasper showed me to their room and graciously offered to let me change the kiddo’s diaper on their bed.

In the middle of juggling a squirmy baby and a handful of dirtied clothes, I knocked down something on the nightstand.

I grabbed it and stuck it back up, then gasped.


Then giggled.


Then guffawed.


Then stuck my kiddo on my shoulder and shook uncontrollably with laughter.

Yeah… you try sitting through dinner knowing there’s a jumbo bottle of A$troglide in your elderly relatives’ bedroom.

And yes, Mr. Daddy pretended he was not amused by my hysterial giggles, but cracked a smile or two...


Sooo… I know you can outdo this! Join along and share your outrageous/miraculous/amazing story!

And oh my goodness... at least you didn't do it when Pops was in the room. THAT would have been awkward.

Rachel said...

I aim to please - keeping my lovely followers happy is my primary goal...

And girl... you did NOT just go there. Oh my, now you've got me wondering if there's a TST about that on YOUR blog??? :)

That was too funny. I would have been cracking up too. I found some crazy stuff in my parents room one time as a teenager and about lost it. Totally grossed me out. LOL

Brandi said...

Oh my gosh, I would have died!

Jane Anne said...

Oh my, that is hysterical! I cannot imagine how hard it would have been to sit through dinner, especially with hubby knowing and cracking a smile. Great story!

I don't think I would have been able to look them in the eyes the rest of the day, let alone sit at the dinner table with them! Oh my goodness!

Emily said...

Wow! That is hilarious. I don't think I'd be able to keep a straight face either!

Mr. and Mrs. Nurse Boy said...

OH.MY.WORD. I would be 5 shades of red and giggling, too. I'm not sure I could have been so put together to actually make it through dinner LOL!

Pam said...

Oh my good gracious, are you SERIOUS?! I would have just died right there. And Great-Uncle Jasper just showed ya right on in there, huh? Was he just forgetful or maybe a bit proud of the bedside find, hmmmm?
