Last night we had tickets to go to the Selah concert. After picking up Elias from day care, I stopped to pick up some subs for dinner and get gas. I got home at 6 and we had to eat, feed and change Elias and leave by 6:30. So we were running around a little crazily. Matthew takes the baby and heads to the car as I am putting last minute things in the diaper bag. I step outside and realize it is too cold to leave without a jacket, so I go back in, set down the diaper bag, put on my coat and quickly lock the front door and leave.
We get to the concert at 6:59 and Matthew drops me at the door to go get our tickets at will call, while he parks the car. It seemed like it took him forever. Finally he comes in with Elias wrapped in Matthew’s coat and wearing a different hat than what I brought for him. I looked at him confused and he said “no diaper bag.”
oh. my. goodness.
So, now not only do we have our son at a concert around the time he starts getting tired and a little cranky, but we don’t have a bottle, rattle or diapers.
Should we go back? No, we decided. It will work out.
And it did.
Thankfully, though I am weaning, I still nurse Elias at night, so I just went to the top level, back row of the church and nursed Elias when he was hungry. No one even noticed me… I don’t think. Elias did have to sit in a wet diaper, but it was a Pampers, so no leaks, my friends.
He ended up getting pretty tired, so we left the concert early, but we did make it without a diaper bag. Thankfully there were no blow-outs and I had my boobs. lol. It made me realize that we need to keep a few diapers and wipes in the car. I used to have a litle “emergency kit,” but for some reason it got taken out of the car.
Have you ever gone somewhere without your diaper bag?
