I had breakfast with by beautiful cousin the other day. She flew into town to see our grandmother and tell her the happy news that she and her husband are expecting a baby. As we sat at breakfast telling baby stories and giving advice I shared this story with her and I thought I would share it with the ARMY as well.
My first memory of the trip is asking Agent Daddy "Did you put everything that was on the kitchen table in the car?"
Agent Daddy huffily relied " I put EVERYTHING in the car."
Then we arrived at the airport and were removing the bags from the car I asked "Where is the diaper bag?" Agent Daddy says "I thought you had it.."
Agent Daddy answers "Well I didn't think you meant the diaper bag."
So I spent the next hour begging for diapers in the airport. I have been informed that they now sell "emergency" packs of diapers at the airport but back then it was beg or nothing.
We arrived in Tampa at 1:30 am, the last flight for the night so they were closing the airport as we arrived. My Aunt picked us up and we proceeded to 24 hour Walmart to buy a whole new diaper bag with all the fixings. have you ever SEEN the kid of people who are at Walmart in the middle of the night? Zombies and freaks. Zombies, Freaks, and People who forget the DIAPER BAG! We escaped Walmart and headed to the place we were staying. When we arrived it was like 3 in the morning Tampa time (which is like midnight California time which is the time we were coming from). We had two cranky sleepy parents and a couple of sleepy kids too. Agent Daddy and I were still speaking , miracle of miracles and I never again believe him when he says he has packed everything.
