Your family comes down with a terrible virus days before your honey leaves. (except me, praise the Lord! But it still wasn't pleasant... let's just say there was a LOT of laundry from my two guys over those few days!)
Your son has a blow-out diaper that cannot be contained in the diaper and begins to run down his pant leg and into his shoes.
You discover there is only ONE wipe left in the diaper bag and paper towels don't even come close to doing the job.
You forgot to pack any extra clothes in the aforementioned diaper bag. (did I mention this happened while we were AT the airport trying to say our good-byes to my airman?!?)
You also discover that the airport only sells infant-sized onesies and older kiddie/adult-sized shirts.
No pants. No shoes. No wipes.
And the kiddie t-shirts are $16 a pop.
You learn that shoes can be washed and scrubbed vigorously in the bathroom sink, but they will still stink during the car ride home.
Your two-year-old, who has been sleeping through the night for at least a year, suddenly reverts and starts waking 2 to 4 times a night, every night, for a week straight. (praise the Lord, he's down to waking up only once, and last night he slept through until 8!!!)
Your car's windshield wiper fluid runs out... just in time for spring rains and dusty days.
Your wiper for said windshield breaks... so that even if you had fluid to clean the window with, the high-pitched noises that ensue make a dirty windshield seem almost desirable.
You come down with a stomach bug (the night before family flies in for a visit) and spend most of the evening with your head hanging over the toilet.
You feel well enough in time to pick up the family at the airport, only to have her and your son catch some other bug that lasts the majority of the week-long visit. (But we had a good time anyway! Miss you tons already, Jess!)
Yes, all of the above have actually happened to
