Eternal Truths

There are two absolute truths when parenting babies…

1) Your baby will always soil his/her clothes right after you’re done doing all of the laundry.

2) Your child will vomit all over himself right after getting a bath.


  1. Well damn. I was hoping it was just a coincidence, not a Law.

  2. A child will also always vomit all over the cute outfit that you had him/her dressed in for a special occasion BEFORE you get there/take pictures/the person who gave them the outfit sees them.

  3. you finish your laundry? Like get it all done – empty basket stylee? You mean those things (washing baskets/hampers) aren’t bottomless pits? Seriously – my laundry is never done…there is always more even when you think you have it all there is always more….. ;-)

    But yeah, babies do tend to poop/vomit at awkward times – just leaving the house is a favourite time too apparently. :-)

  4. Just when you think you’re getting it down to a science (Yes, you will hit a point when they stop destroying all their cute clothes at every opportunity) they start potty training & the clothes soiling starts off in a whole new direction again. Glad I could be a ray of sunshine in your day.

  5. What is this finishing laundry you speak of?

  6. I retired my sweat outfits for a dinner on the town. Within minutes of getting to our seats I had cranberry sauce on my shirt and lots of Eli’s food good on my leg. Why bother washing at all really?!

  7. I had #2 all over my hallway on Thursday.

    That sounds much worse than it really was. It was just vomit after the bath.

    And I’m with Bridgette. You’ve finished the laundry?

  8. #3 – As soon as you change your child’s diaper, he/she will promptly push out a poop, forcing you to do back-to-back changes.

    Last week I was holding our daughter and my hand felt warm – realized she had wet through her diaper and onto my hand. Upon inspection, I noticed my pants too were wet…and my shirt…and my boxers! Yes, she had wet through MY CLOTHES too – only articles of clothing spared were my socks, and I’m sure she probably tried to spit up on them! ;)
