Baby Poo at the Airport

Before I became a mother, I was like most naive young women… I’d see a stressed mom having a hard time wrangling her kids and think, that won’t be me. I’ll just be more organized. I’ll be prepared for anything… And then reality struck in the form of an 8lb brand new baby girl. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Here’s one of those moments that I was NOT prepared for, but crack up every time I think back on it!

The middle of September was considered #weddingbonanza2013 in our house. I had two weddings on two consecutive weekends not only to attend, but to be honored as a bridesmaid for two of my good friends. The first wedding, went off without a hitch. My sweet girl slept the entire 3 hour drive, was an angel for my sister, our official wedding nanny, during the wedding and we even got an adorable family photo. ๐Ÿ˜‰


The second wedding was on the beautiful island of South Padre, Texas. The trip required a three hour drive to the airport in El Paso, Tx. A flight from El Paso to Dallas. Then a three hour layover and a flight from Dallas to Brownsville followed by a thirty minute drive to the island. You guys, my husband was out of control nervous. He’s one of those types that almost has a nervous breakdown at the thought of having to speak in public. {He had to give a toast as the best man, but that’s a story for another time… ;)} He was so worried that Klara would cry and be upset on the flights and we wouldn’t be able to comfort her. You can imagine where this is going, but let me stop you right there. She was AMAZING on every single flight we took both there and on the way home. She slept or nursed the entire time and we had several people tell us they didn’t even realize there was a baby on the plane! Don’t let her daddy’s face fool you… he just didn’t want to take a photo… haha.

Klara's first flight

The real interesting part of my story happened right as we were about to board the first flight out of El Paso. We had gotten to the airport with plenty of time to spare, made it through security without a problem, had lunch, changed Klara and were standing in line ready to board the plane. We are literally being called to hand over our boarding passes and I, standing beside my sister and husband, holding Klara, start to feel a blow out coming on… Seriously. I handed over my boarding pass and started down the tunnel to the airplane thinking if I could just hurry into the bathroom I could get her changed before take off. As I’m walking down the tunnel I felt a drip. Right on the top of my foot. {I had flip flops on.} Miss Klara’s blow out was running down her pant leg!!! I had my sister hand me a wipe from the diaper bag so I could keep the rest from leaking out, ran onto the plane and asked the first flight attendant I saw for the restroom.

As quickly as I could I had to change her diaper, her entire outfit, wipe off my foot and get into my seat before we backed out of the terminal. Now if that’s not a winning mommy moment, although completely hilarious afterward, I don’t know what is… ๐Ÿ™‚ Needless to say I’m sure the first class passengers weren’t all that thrilled with the air in the restroom for that flight… hahaha

Your turn: What’s your favorite embarrassing mommy moment? Yours or a friend, relative, etc??

  1. Oh girl!!! Good save! Luckily enough I’ve not had the blowout *knock on wood*

    But embarrassing mom moment was while I was breastfeeding and got the whole leak through the breast pad through the shirt in the store. Best part never even realized it until checking out. How many people saw me and said nothing. Gah!

    Looking back, I just laugh because I know I’m not the only one. It makes like fun and interesting.

      Agreed! It’s nice to know there are other mamas out there that have seen it all, right?! haha. I haven’t ever had the leak happen, so there’s a little something for each of us I guess! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Haha! I think being a mom has been one of the most humbling things ever. Thanks for the laugh and for linking up to Thrive @ Home Thursday!

  3. Welcome to being a mommy! Yup, the airport is bad, but my oldest did the same thing and had it all running down the high chair in a restaurant one time. It smelled awful. We quickly grabbed her and luckily we had finished our meal. I felt so bad for all those others trying to still eat. OOPS! _ _ _ _ happens! At least according to the Forest Gump movie. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
