Life Happens

Oh that innocent face! How could he cause such a scene?

Do you ever have an event all built up in your mind only to have it go way off course? 

A few years ago, I made plans to meet up with my friend Lora, whom I’d known online for years but never met in person. I’d drive down to see her with my almost 3 year-old, my 1.5 year old, and my newly growing baby bump. We’d chat and have a great time. Simple enough, right?

Except that right after I walked into her house, as soon as we got into her freshly mopped kitchen, my toddler had a diaper EXPLOSION, the likes of which I’d never seen before and thankfully, never seen since.

The poop shot up out the top of his diaper, getting all over me and all over the kitchen floor. 

Like “hi, so nice to finally meet you, let us walk in and get poop all over your house.” How’s that for an entrance?

I was so mortified! 

But thankfully, because we’d been traveling, I had an extra set of clothes for each of us in the van. 

It’s not often that I’m that prepared. It helped make an embarrassing moment… well, not less embarrassing, but it helped to get everything(and everyone!) cleaned up a lot faster! 

I’m writing this post for Life Insurance Awareness Month and the fact that Life Happens

Since we have no idea what is coming next, it’s best to be prepared: whether it’s with a spare set of clothes or with Life Insurance
