Leave it to Tara (music playing in background)

Some days I feel like I'm the secret star of a sit com, and that there's a hidden camera somewhere and an audience laughing behind the scenes. I've occasionally shared some of these experiences , and I'd like to share another that happened yesterday.

We had piano lessons yesterday evening, and toward the end of the session, Summer dirtied her diaper (note to self: potty train this child!). I was so busy packing her bag to keep her occupied, happy, and quiet during an hour of lessons that I forgot to pack one little important item: a diaper. No sweat. I always keep extra in the van.

Well, at least MOST of the time. But, as luck would have it, there wasn't a spare in the van either. I didn't realize this until after I had cleaned her up in the church parking lot (where we have lessons), so I just put her in her seat with no diaper and headed to Wal-Mart.

Yes, Wal-Mart. I go to the store once per week, while I am already out with everybody dressed and ready. I was not about to go all the way home without picking up my groceries while I was out.

I'm thinking.....I could buy diapers at Wal-Mart and put one on her. No, too much running around and time wasted, besides I just paid $16 for a case last week and diapers are not on my list. Still thinking.....

It was then that I discovered some little handy sized trash bags in the console, and an extra burp cloth in the drawer underneath the passenger's seat. Well, as they say...Necessity is the mother of invention, and here's what she looked like as we ran through Wal-Mart.

And here are the good sports who helped their crazy mom rig this up:

What a day!

Join us again next week for another exciting episode of "Leave it to Tara".

I've ended up at church not once, but twice, with no diaper and the people are all looking at me like "and you are the stay at home, homeschooling, looking well to the ways of your household mom, and you don't have a diaper?"

I give you A+ for that little creation!
