Eric can be quite the MacGyver in a pinch. As an example once he patched a bicycle tube with a Chips Ahoy wrapper. Another time he tied down a canopy with ties from a cinch bag. Whenever he does this I get pretty impressed and proud of my man. Well, now I have a little story of my own. The other day we took the kids on a train ride to the mountains. When it was too late, we realized we had forgotten Aspen's shoes. I was a little worried but it turned out not to be a problem. As part of our ride we were served sandwiches and some snacks, the snacks wrapped cleverly in some red bandanas. In the middle of the ride there was a stop so everyone could get out and stretch a little. There was a hay bale maze among other things, which Aspen ran to right away. While she was running around she happened to wet herself pretty well. We've had issues of regression when it comes to Aspen's potty training, but she had been so good for so long (and we were in a hurry when we left) that I didn't grab any extra underpants or shorts for her (which I always always remember to do). I started panicking because I wanted her dry but how was I going to cover my little girl? We threw one of Oakley's diapers on her (yes, they wear the same size), and then (and here comes the good part) I grabbed four of the red bandanas that we had gotten during the lunch and wrapped them around Aspen. It looked pretty cute, although with that "skirt" and no shoes she looked like quite the little hillbilly.
