So there I was, minding my business, ok playing with the chipmunk. My wife had just finished feeding him and he had about a 15 minute break before I was playing with him. I had him sitting on my chest bouncing him up and down and out of the blue… spit up all over my chin and neck. It was only millimeters away from getting in my mouth.
Lesson is… wait atleast 30 minutes before playing rough with your child after eating.
My wife and I went out to go shopping for a bit and she went into a store that I really enjoy people watching… ok make that husband watch (and no not in that way)… it was Ann Taylor. The reason I like to husband watch is I like to see how other guys react to their wives shopping in this dreaded store that even stepping foot into can make a man lose his man card. I digress though, we had the chipmunk in his stroller but he was getting fussy since he had been in their for a while. I took him out and was carrying him around the store. My wife then goes into to try a few things on and I find the one chair in the store to sit on. I sat the chipmunk down on my lap and was playing with him. I end up picking him up and there is a giant wet spot in my lap! Now I know that I don’t have a bladder problem. Yup, the chipmunk had peed on me in public in an area that would make it look like I peed myself! Luckily, it was our last store and we were on our way home after that.
Lesson is… don’t play with your child on your lap while out in public.
