It should seriously come with a toilet paper dispenser

After 45 minutes of messing with buckles and buttons to successfully strap Allison to Jerry via her baby backpack for the first time:

"Um, I have to go to the bathroom."

"Oh God."

"What do we do?"

"I am NOT taking her out of there. That was a pain in the ass."

"Yeah, well, I'm gonna have a different kind of pain in my ass in a second."

...

...

"I won't tell Social Services if you won't."

HA HA HA! Don't worry. I think all parents have used the bathroom with a baby strapped to us at some point.

I won't tell either. Just wait until you have your baby and she is old enough to sit in the seat of the shopping cart and you just carry her into the store instead of bringing the stroller. Then you have to pee. So you can't take the buggy in the bathroom. SO you have to pee with her sitting on your lap because you would NEVER put her down in the bathroom stall.
It's ok. There are a LOT of things kids survive that social services is convinced they can't.

You guys are too funny. I'm sure Mat and I will have a similar conversation in about 8 1/2 months.

Hey, I got a question for you. What did you do about food cravings you couldn't satisfy? For the last few days I've been dying for a Charlie's cheeseburger but we won't be back in Rochester until the end of the month. Albany doesn't have good burgers. Anywhere. I've tried. I'm just about ready to make a one night round trip to Rochester just for a damn burger.

HA!

I remember when my nieces were babies, all those baby contraptions are a PAIN! But then you find a couple that are worth it. The baby swing, and the car seat that the carrier pops out - priceless!

Jen said...

LOL! The little known "joys" of parenthood. And Traci is absolutly correct, we've all done it. Its a right of passage few talk about I think.

Jen said...

oh and btw, the only thing worse is getting baby dressed in coat/hat etc, strapping her into the car seat and putting it into the car and RIIIIPPPP, an explosive poop that demands instant changing. Start over from step 1

Janice said...

Haha! Oh no, that's terribly funny!

Oh my gosh! That's funnier than my friend's husband who is a dad of one week attaching the breast pump to himself to see what would happen.

Melissa said...

Kelly, I gotta be quick coz my internet is shit right now.

I think there's something wrong with your comments. It doesn't let me comment with my google account anymore.

Second, I know I have no right to be giving advice on kids, since I have none, but from everything I've learned in my psych classes, you really shouldn't be letting her cry it out this early in life. In the first 6 months she needs to learn the world is a secure place that can be trusted, that her needs will be met, etc. Please talk to a doctor about this before continuing... I'm sure it's fine, maybe I'm just over-thinking it. But please just ask a professional about this!

As always, you guys are awesome! :D

Love,
Marina

Hey Julie, If you have a 5 Guys Burgers you should try one. They are YUMMYYYYYYY!! And to my comment (the very first one on this post) that should have said, laughing. Sorry.

Erica said...

LOL! I agree with the others. I won't tell either. I can't do anything without my son wanting to be attached. He even plays in the bathroom while I shower. We have toilet lid locks so he can't get into anything. It should get easier. I just have a mama's boy.

Ray said...

OMG! That has to be one of the funiest posts ever. Ohmygoodness, I can't wait to hear (read) more! Mwahahahahaha, love you guys.

I'm a Tom Wahl's girl myself!! I just think Charlie's cuz it's closer to my parents' house. Tom Wahl's has the best pickles though, and they're not a greasy as Charlie's.

Dude. If we're ever visiting our parents at the same time, we should definitely meet at Tom Wahl's for lunch.

Then go to Abbott's.

Candace said...

Hahaha... what a great memory to embarass Alli when she brings her first boyfriend home! :)

I saw this article today on the Discovery Channel site and it make me think of you. It's more proof that women are SUPER HEROES... haha.

Shalini said...

HAHAHA... mental image!!

LOL and there will be times when you have to hold her and go to the ladies room.. and it's such a pain.. i NEVER EVER let her walk around in a public restroom... iCK!

Jessica said...

Priceless! Those thing can be a major pain in the...well, you know. :)

My husband was SO excited to walk with the baby in our carrier. He used all of once. I'm telling you, that baby has nicer things than me.

Oh man! The stuff one never thinks of before having a first born or without kids at all!

A dividend today were the suggestions about good upstate NY burger joints!

In response to your comments:

I know, he was mortified that he forgot his "nicer" shoes for the occasion. ;)

And you're right, it's impossible to spoil an infant until they get to a certain age. That is why I wouldn't be worried about spoiling her at this age, just giving her what she needs. And yeah, I can see how every little thing feels like it could be the wrong choice. But i'm sure it's not that big of a deal. :) I think I'm just a typical undergrad psych student over-analyzing and diagnosing everyone. haha. Even so, I think you'd feel better about it if you got some advice on it from a doctor.
But either way, you sound like you're doing great so far. :)
