Why my husband is not allowed to take the children out by himself.

I had to work last night until 1 am.  When I came home, hubby was waiting for me in the chair.  They had gone to a our church's Family Fun Nite at The Clubhouse here in Statesboro.  I asked how things had gone, and he said "Fine, until...{insert Sam's name here}".  Sam, it's always Sam.  Sigh.

Here's my understanding of the story.....

Hubby was sitting with Madi watching the other three play in the ball pit.  Jacob and Emma came running over, but not Sam.  Hubby inquired of Emma where Sam was.  Her response..."I can't find him."  {here's where my mom radar would have gone into overdrive....missing child alert!}.  So hubby says he gets up and starts heading over to the ball pit.  He see's another church dad waving him over.  He said "I thought he wanted me to bowl with him."  Not so, honey.  Here comes Brother Wiggins, who leans over to my husband and says this.......

"Your boy is naked in the bathroom."

Fast forward to the bathroom scene.  Four kids in the mens room of the Clubhouse.  Emma is holding her nose.  Sam is {of course} naked.  There are flies and he is freaking out.  Hubby told him it's his odor that is attracting the flies.  There is poop in underwear, poop on the floor.   {does this sound familiar??} Brother Wiggins shows up with a bottle of spray and some paper towels.  Hubby said other random church dads are knocking on the door to check if he's ok.  Madi has strapped herself onto the bathroom changing table.  They are all in the handicap stall.  Sam is crying because he can't go play in the ball pit. 

I'm thinking Sam is a party animal.  He showed up fully clothed and left in a diaper and sneakers. 
How much fun did he have???

I'm going to be doing alot of apologizing this weekend at church. They just don't UNDERSTAND Sam.  He is MISUNDERSTOOD. 

Lol. 

And that folks, is why my husband is not longer allowed to take the children out by himself.

  1. LOL, that is awesome (in a funny blog post sort of way, but not if you are having to live it sort of way). My husband doesn't do well taking the kids in public either, he panics. Great blog, found you at Finding the Funny.

  2. I also found you at Finding the Funny. You're a gifted writer with a razor-sharp wit and I know I'll be back for more. I had several similar incidents with our son when he was small. But he's thirty now and probably wouldn't appreciate me mentioning them. I hope you'll visit me sometime at Chubby Chatterbox where I write about humor, travel and nostalgia. I think we might have a lot in common. If you visit, I hope you'll take a moment to press the Join button and I'll return the compliment. Thanks and have a great week.

  3. Before long you will notice that your hands remain soft and silky all the time.

    In case you too belong to the community of nail biters, then it is important to know
    ways to get got rid of the Nail Biting habit permanently.
    If you use NLP with personal hypnotherapy as well as hypnosis you certainly
    will recognize main outcomes easily.

  4. The best way to make every hour of everyday productive is to
    have an hour-by-hour schedule. If you can relate to this, you probably feel that you are shy or have
    low self-esteem. You know that girl in number 54 always smiling
    she is, lovely smile to, I wonder what she is smiling about.
