Today my single brother with no children, Cameron, offered to help me with the kids. He first came over and made "green" smoothies with the kids while I made my list for Target.
I then left Cameron with only one child. I dropped off Elijah at preschool and took the baby with me. I changed Lydia's diaper right before I left because I knew that Uncle Cam was diaper changing challenged. I figured if she dropped a deuce I would be home soon enough to change it... I was wrong.
I got the panicked call from Uncle while I was shopping for a baby gift. He relayed the sequence of events to me and unspeakable joy welled up inside of my soul. Not simply because I knew I had fabulous blog material, but because a non-Mom had the privilege of walking in 1/3 of my shoes for 1/24th of a typical day. I could hardly contain myself as I counseled, "The first and most important thing to do in this situation is to get the camera. It is on the kitchen table. Document the events." He interviewed Lydia. I heard it. It was funny. But when I came home we discovered that this was too much for him. The video did not take and Mr. Professional Photographer's pictures were blurry. He was way too flustered. He was still totally traumatized when I got home and quickly admitted that women are definitely the stronger sex.
My brother is hilarious - you don't want to miss any of this.
This is what Lydia had to say about it when she could pull away from staring at herself in the mirror.
This is in Cameron's own words, "I called Wendy immediately as if she were a 911 operator ready with CPR instructions. "I'm sorry sir, but you're going to have to calm down. Find my camera and document everything. That is all I can help you with at the moment. I'm in line at Target... I'll be home by the time you've figured something out."
As I was exiting Target and heading for my car I was literally laughing out loud all the way to my car. There was a family in front of me that looked back at me in total insecurity. They thought I was laughing at them, but I really didn't want to get into the whole story so I just let them suffer.
