If you’ve been following our blogs, you know they’re mostly written from my perspective. Since I’m the mom in our dynamic duo, I tend to have the funny kid stories. This story, however, comes from Samantha and her memory of a daddy babysitting day gone wrong.
Her mom had gone out for the day and left her hubby in charge of their children. Samantha was three at the time and began not feeling well. Her fever escalated and she was miserable. So was her dad. He tried everything to make her comfortable, but nothing worked and finally, she threw up everywhere. She not only spewed all over herself, but her dad as well.
(OK, picture this because the thought of it makes me hysterical.)
He picks Sam up and holds her at arm’s length because he was so grossed out. He then runs around the house trying to figure out what to do with her. Sam is crying, telling him to get the puke off her, so he runs into the bathroom and proceeds to dunk her in the toilet to rinse her off. HE DUNKS HER IN THE TOILET! (How do you fit a 3-year-old in the toilet?) As soon as her mom walked through the door, her dad started to explain the situation, but before he could, Sam told her mom what a great time she had with her dad. He made being sick fun and she felt so much better. His housekeeping skills, however, left much to be desired.
No Need for Alternative Facts
Let’s be honest, we have made mistakes along the way. It took us a few tries to find the right partners in manufacturing Kids These Days swimwear. While many companies take their work overseas, our suppliers are no more than an hour away. Producing our swimsuits locally has been a huge sense of pride for us. Our first season has been filled with ups and downs, but when a customer tells us their daughter refuses to take off her swimsuit and wants to wear it everywhere, we know we’re doing something right.
Remember that Mommalies are not reserved strictly for your children. How many times have you had to say this to your other half?
“Put down the toilet seat lid!”
Just make sure your three-year-old is not inside when you do!
