If you want to laugh at me,

Read this (from my friend Lucinda's private blog):

Yesterday at church I had a note passed to me from Stephanie, (see Steph and Darrell blog) and the giggles got the best of us. Because of the pew bouncing from the giggles the note was shared and the pews were positively levitating. The note said the following...

"Megan lifted her dress to show me her new underwear. I whispered that we don't show off our panties. She then lifted my skirt to check out my panties!"

The note answered why Stephanie's face was red and Megan came to sit by me!

If you want to laugh at Darrell, keep reading.

A couple of weeks ago, we went to Glendale (and came back in under 4 hours!) to visit Darrell's aunt Paula. She was in town from DC helping her son and daughter-in-law welcome their third child into the world. We ate yummy dinner and were sitting in the family room, talking. I held baby Landon for awhile (he was only three days old and tiny). I then told Darrell it was his turn.

He was scared to death.

He is afraid of all children, but particularly those that are helpless. He knows he will break one.

He sat in the rocking chair and held out his arms to take the baby. He was rigid! I told him he could pull his arm closer into his body, which would make things more comfortable. He agreed and ended up not breaking anything.

After about 15 minutes, I asked him if he wanted a break and he said he was okay.

About 15 minutes later, Darrell started squirming and panicking. The baby had a leaky diaper! Darrell was wet.

He handed Landon to mom Amanda, who changed him. Darrell went into the bathroom and washed his hands.

Amanda came in and told us Grandma Paula had mis-diapered. The "hardware" was all out of the diaper.

That would explain why a three day old baby had drenched Darrell's pants and shirt.

Oh. It doesn't end there.

A couple of days later, I remarked on how brave he was. I wouldn't have been able to stay an hour longer with baby pee on me.

He said, "It's not like he ate anything weird!"

I said, "Amanda's breastfeeding."

Darrell freaked out, "I thought he had just been drinking water! That's gross!"

P.S. I can't laugh at you b/c the link you gave is to a private blog.
