Stark Raving Madness

Busy Dad and Mr Lady have recently started up an “advice” ( a word that they use loosely ) blog where readers submit questions and get answers from a few different perspectives.

Some answers are serious and sincere.  Some answers are funny and make you chuckle.  You never know what you are going to get with these two minds at work… 😀

They recently answered my question:

Why do kids always need to go to the restroom (or totally blow up a diaper) at the most inconvenient times and places…like at a restaurant  in the middle of dinner, or even when you are driving on the highway just after you passed the last exit for the next 30 miles?

See the answer I got here.

    We just went to Cedar Point, and my son said he had to poop, when we were at the very top of the ferris wheel.

      @Momo Fali
      Haha! At least it wasn’t on the Millinium Force or something like that! Was he able to make it until the ride was over? If I remember right that is one HUGE ferris wheel and takes forever to load/unload it. 😀

    Oh yeah. Don’t I remember those days fondly? (Not!). Like the totally full diaper you mention, when we were at the park and I had NO diapers in the bag, and only 2 wet-wipes left. That was an experience. Learned my lesson: spare diapers and lots of plastic bags and wetwipes; don’t leave home without em.

    Yup. My kid is triggered by contact with the surface of the water in our hot tub, after being decked out in swim diaper, swimsuit, life vest and goggles. Glad the blow-out days are over, though.
