How Soon We Forget

Thought I would share an incident from earlier today, where I knew better but somehow forgot to remember.  I offered to babysit a month old adorable baby boy in my home.  He slept for about two hours and then awoke crying, so I gave him his bottle, remembered to pat his back – wait for the burp and then I checked his diaper.  He needed to be changed and so I carried him gently into my room and laid him on the bed where the clean diapers and fixings were waiting.

As I undid his onesie and then his diaper, I started to reach for the wipes and new diaper when “there was a vertical shower” and I couldn’t react fast enough because I was laughing and so surprised as I said “how could you not remember”?  Little Calvin you have just blessed me with your own personal brand and we will be friends forever.  I promise to cover first with a diaper so I don’t forget next time.

Would you remember after 40 years?

    I was going to leave a comment……but I forgot what I was going to say. I think it was something about diapers but I really don’t remember.
