Diaper Disaster

 Wednesday my husband called to say he would be leaving work in ten minutes. I let him know that when he got home I would need to run to Walmart for diapers. Surprisingly, he said "I'll get them". I was thrilled! I hate going to Walmart and I know how much he hates stopping when he is anxious to get home. I quickly changed into my jammies at 5 pm and relished in my amazing husband. That was until he got home. He walked in with the diapers in a Sunflower sack. For all of you who don't live around these parts, Sunflower is the one grocery store in the town my husband works in. He bought diapers from a grocery store! Do you have any idea how much diapers cost at a grocery store, and not just any grocery store, the only grocery store in town? He pulled them out of the sack so proud and announced "they have bunnies on them". He bought the most generic brand they had and they still cost the same as a box of Huggies from Walmart. Now I will say that he asked when he called if it mattered what brand. I just never thought of him buying generic. I also never thought he would stop at the grocery store. I really thought he would stop at Walmart when he came into town and when I said the brand didn't matter I meant Luvs, Huggies, or Pampers. Hello lack of communication! When Jack woke up at 2:30 am for a diaper change and a bottle he was soaked from his underarms to his diaper. I marched right into our bedroom, woke my husband up, pointed to Jack, and said "this is why you don't buy cheap diapers". He rolled over and went back to sleep and didn't even remember my rant the next morning so I had to start over. Oh how I hate repeating myself.
I wasn't really mad at him because I should have been more specific but it did make me chuckle to have another point on the mamas are awesome side. A mama wouldn't have made that mistake. I told my mom about that story because us mamas have to stick together. When I got home Friday from work I had 3 big boxes of good diapers inside my house and a 100 dollar bill under the formula can. Moms are awesome. Just another piece of proof.
