Lessons learned (from a peep show)

Sorry, no pictures with this post, but you'll understand why in a moment.

Ya'll know Mandy is potty trained now. Well, while at church, just before Sacrament Meeting was going to start Mandy said she needed to go potty. So, like the dutiful mother I am, I took her to the ladies room and helped her up onto the pot. I grabbed some toilet paper and turn around just in time to see she had "fountained" over the edge of the toilet right onto her panties.

I didn't have my bag with me and knew that there were no extra panties or pull-ups in it...


Paul had, maybe, possibly, out of some burst of inspiration, could have put some panties in the bag before church...? I rinsed out her panties and dried them off as best I could using paper towels.

I wadded up her semi-wet panties and held them in my hand and asked Mandy to put her dress down. She gave me this look, like, "Mom, did you forget something or are you just going crazy!?!"

I told her that her panties were wet and we needed to go see Dad, and to PLEASE keep her dress down. She kept arguing with me that her panties were dry and that she didn't have an accident. I couldn't get her to understand what was going on.

We made it back to the chapel with no problem. Walked in front of all those people, no one suspected a thing. Aren't I sneaky.


While I was trying to explain to Paul what happened, I glanced over at Mandy (standing at the end of the row, practically in the aisle) who had her dress up around her shoulders!!!! I quickly grab her dress and pull it down and explain to her again that she needs to keep her dress down.

As Paul and I looked for that extra pull-up or pantie that just didn't exist in my bag, I noticed Mandy's bare-ness again!!! At that point I didn't care, I grabbed her and put those somewhat wet panties back on her.

Of course, after that, she wanted to sit on my lap. (I think that was her revenge.)

So, what's the lesson to be learned in all of that!?! Come to our ward if you want to have a peep show! (that and always have extra panties on hand)

That's funny. I have learned that lesson...about having extra underwear--but funny, I learn it over and over:).
