Had a crappy Valentine's Day (literally)!
Man, us Mercedians sure know how to party! We started off with a romantic breakfast of green eggs (scrambled eggs with steamed broccoli mixed in), then went to the park for a playdate with friends. We had an intimate lunch at the local Indian buffet, just us and our friends Harper and Merrick and their parents. To cap off the day, Nick and I took the kids to McDonalds for a gourmet meal of chicken nuggets and apple slices. Alden showed how he feels about me by climbing into the top of the play structure and taking a gigantic dump. I mean GIGANTIC. As in, down his legs, all over his pants, onto his socks and shoes gigantic. Now, this sort of thing doesn't happen often (read: ever) so I was totally unprepared and didn't have any extra pants for the poor little chubster. Once I had decontaminated Alden and finished gagging, I realized I didn't even have a manly diaper to put him in!!! Poor little guy had to wear Ruthie's Paper Doll diaper. Sorry Bubba!!! Did I mention that he started crying after he pooped and I had to worm my way into the twisty turny part of the tubes to get him? Yeah. Awesome.
