Did That Just Happen?

Today I am linking up with Once Upon A Miracle for True Story Tuesday! Head on over and fill up your laugh tank! Happy Tuesday everyone!

The other night, while I was washing cups and bottles for about the millionth time that day, I realized I hadn't mixed any formula for the next day yet. So, I politely asked my husband if he would mix some up for me. Well I thought I asked politely... perhaps I was wrong...

The formula should be in this container...

Not all over the floor!!!!!!

Or all over my shoulder!!!!

Or all down my back!!!!
Or in my hair!!!!
Or in my right ear!!!

I was minding my own business, washing bottles quietly at the sink, when all of a sudden... POP!!!! I was covered in smelly, warm formula. Not only that, there were still undissolved chunks of formula all over me too. I must mention that Charlie was standing a mere 2 feet away from me at the time of the explosion. I'm not sure what I did to deserve this, but you can bet I won't be asking Charlie to mix anymore formula while I am in the kitchen. Oh, he says it was an accident. "You made the water too hot and it built up pressure! How was I suppose to know it was going to explode?!?!?!?! Ummm I think you have a little something on you Babe." Really? Where? Oh, ALL OVER ME?????? Thanks Babe! I probably would have missed it had you not pointed it out. As I stood at the sink, in shock of what had just happened, all I could do was bust out laughing. We stood there together, in the middle of all that terribly smelly puddle of formula, and laughed, and laughed, and laughed. We could not breathe we were laughing so hard. The explosion came out of nowhere so it really caught us off guard. It took a good 30 to 45 seconds for either of us to even move or look at each other. There are certain things that just only seem to happen to me and Charlie. We have some of the CRAZIEST stories, but I wouldn't change it for the world! There is never a dull moment when we are together. Once we finally stopped laughing, I finished washing the bottles and then was off to take a shower. That would not have been so bad had it not been 11:00 pm. I can't complain too much though. It may have been a late shower, but at least I got to take a shower without an audience for a change! What an end to an already long day!

I love it! I mean, I'm sorry for laughing at the mess, but you know you are a true blogger when you stop to take pictures for the blog! :)

This is too funny - I think we've all had those moments where a huge mess suddenly happens and all you can do is laugh!

I totally chuckled at the "shower without an audience" part - because only moms would know that!!

Thanks for linking up and have a great week!

I sometimes have the same situation with my shirt and hair, but with spit-up instead!
