She didn't change your babe when he got up. There was too much going on with the Hi-C and the pop tarts. Time passes and everyone (including SIL) is a bit hyper from the snacks. She finally looks at the clock and it dawns on her that your dh is about to get home. There is your babe still in the same morning dipe w/soaker which is now completely saturated through and through. (Ok I don't have a wool soaker but I don't think any wool soaker could have gone that long.) Anyone ever tried to untie a wet knot??? She tries and tries. The clock is ticking. Boy will folks be pissed if this baby is still in the same diaper. Finally out of poor desperation she tries to use the scissors to undo the wet knot (risking life and limb) but it just won't budge. Adding to her mounting panic is you ds talking about the special wool. Finally, she just cuts your babe out of the soaker with only minutes to spare. She run and hides it. She knows you'll be mad but this will give her enough time to escape before the sh*** hits the fan. She figures you'll be mad but that it will wear off and just maybe you'll be so appreciative about her watching the kids that you'll let her slide a bit.
Obviously, I watch too much court tv.
