Yes I am aware it is also Valentine’s Day today but I have been looking forward to Lunar New Year as well! Any event where it is sanctioned that I can eat tons of Korean food AND celebrate with friends I am all about! We were headed to another town for the celebration! Aaron had fixed the car battery and we were ready to go!
I watched my beloved Illini lose and then we left because I want to visit the fabric store in that town as well as the Asian grocery so we left early. Everyone looked so cute…I say that because not everyone was wearing what they left the house in come dinner time.
We get to the town and Little Man and I went into the fabric store (Little Princess was asleep). I smell something and soon realize it was coming from Little Man. His diaper NEEDED changed. So I call Aaron and ask him to bring in the diaper bag (leaving Sunny and Little Princess in the car). He brings it in and tells me he will change the diaper while I finish shopping. Ok sounds good to me. So I finish up my shopping and notice that they are not back out yet. I head back to the bathroom where I hear Little Man crying and Daddy well let’s just say he is not so calm. I get them to let me into the men’s restroom (luckily it is a one man bathroom) and realize that the diaper had exploded everywhere. Daddy knew the only other outfit I had for Little Man was his hanbok and so he had tried to clean up Little Man’s clothes but the whole room smelled like poop. So I sent Daddy to fetch the hanbok and I proceeded to bag up all of the clothing and poop covered diaper. I cleaned up what I could of the poop covered diaper bag and tried to decide what to do next. I was trying not to cry because well if I started I would not stop. We got Little Man dressed in his hanbok and left.
After a few unanswered phone calls to friends who were coming to dinner…we went to Wal-Mart where I had to settle for clothing that I had not planned on. By this point I am trying so hard to find something funny about all of this because I am close to tears. All I could think is WHY….
So we arrived a few minutes late to dinner (sorry everyone) BUT I managed to keep it together and we had a great time…it was pretty fun! Thank you friends for not asking and for understanding! I cannot wait for our next event there should be even more kids! I will NOT label the children in this picture….which happens to be the best picture I got of all of the kids there…if you know the kids just use a first initial in the comments and DO NOT link to a parents blog unless you are a parent.
And for those thinking Little Man is sick – he may be BUT we are working on a stool testing to make sure we know what we are dealing with first…this is not the first time this has happened and we have other issues. (Same for Little Princess…)
So to the pictures…
And my absolute favorite picture even though I didn’t take it…check her out:
