A few random posts....but with picutres!
I love them.
Danica has a cute Etsy shop and she sells them here.
Sander's is prone to getting a diaper rash. It is very odd because he almost always tells us immediately when he has pooped. And yet his little bum is very often very sore. Last night was no exception and probably one of the more sever cases. He was crying and screaming because it hurt so bad to wipe him.
Kevin looked in his mom's cabinets for something to sooth the pain. He handed me two tubs. One said, "Pain relief" and the other was neosporin. He said, "There isn't any diaper rash cream, but this one should take away the pain and the neosporin should help it heal."
Sounded good to me.
Because Sanders was crying so hard, I thought I would use the pain relief first. I should have looked at the tube closer because the second I put it on his raw little bum he started crying harder. I began to say, "It's ok, Honey. It doesn't hur......"
That's when I got a BIG whiff of menthol.
I had just applied MUSCLE pain relief cream to his diaper rash!
The poor kid.
He was inconsolable for about 20 minutes and we rushed him to the tub and tried to convince him that sitting down in the water on his stinging rear end would actually help him not hurt him more.
It was so sad. And now it is so funny.
Sorry, Sanders. Lesson learned.
