Bright Orange Cardigan and a Diaperless Kid

"Mommy, diaper," Pigtails said as she ran into my room completely naked.
Not good when your kid has undressed herself, says "diaper" and isn't wearing one.
I looked closer and saw poo all over her.  I quickly cleaned up Pigtails
I prayed the diaper was on the kitchen tile or wood floor, somewhere easy to clean.  Or better yet, maybe Pigtails threw her own diaper in the trash.  Yeah right.
Afterwards I went out to find...the diaper and some poo on the rug.  Oh well.  Could've been worse...I think

MATERNITY TOP - Motherhood Maternity (thrifted)
JEGGINGS - $4, JC Penney
WOOD BRACELET - Heavenly Treasures
BROWN BOOTS - Jessica Simpson

Almost 33 Weeks...just a few more to go!

My sister, Polka Dots, arrived today from Hawaii.  We got to do our favorite activity, shopping!  We went to Old Navy where I got this $9 bright orange cardigan (along with some leggings and a $14 wool pea coat!!!).  We had Groupons.  I also wore this top my sister thrifted in Hawaii along with a pair of jeggings I got at JC Penney for $4 (thanks to a coupon). 

Pigtails, my little poop monster.

I've just gotten so caught up with the holidays, trying to get cards out and presents wrapped, that I haven't visited very many blogs nor have I blogged myself!  I'm just so wiped out!  But I'm sending lots of happy holiday thoughts out to everyone!  Please DON'T have a poopy holiday!

OMG Claire this is what I fear the most from my son. He is not ready yet to leave his beloved diapers and I don't dare doing it!
I love that cardi, the color looks great on you!

I'm sure you're tired of hearing this, but you are THE most adorable pregnant woman. I know what you mean about blogging taking a back seat during the holidays. Just wait until baby arrives! Happy Holidays!

That cardigan is a great red! I really should try wearing red. It's my favorite color but for some reason never liked it on me!

Haha! Yuck! My uncle once walked into his one year old's room and saw that he had carried "mud" into the house and was driving his cars though it... it was not mud... So yea, I guess it COULD have been worse. Love that orange top. Enjoy your sister time :)

Frannie Pantz said...

Oh I remember those diaper days all to well. They are vicious and unforgiving all right.

Love your cardigan! You look so lovely and I can't wait to "meet" that little bundle! Just keep thinking February 6th! (That's my birthday, it's a good one)

Gracey at Fashion for Giants said...

Ah, poop monsters. I think I may have dodged that bullet by not having children.

Love the bright orange cardi (you know I do) and that tunic underneath. Enjoy your visit with your sister, and have a wonderful Christmas!

Annie L said...

Ah, the things moms do. But your orange sweater is adorable!

Mary Jo at TrustYourStyle said...

I can't believe you're so far along now {after not showing for months!} You look as cute as ever! Sorry to hear you have been sick too--I am still kind of a mess but hoping it will get better by Saturday!

Merry Christmas Claire!!

Ah, I have experienced such incidents and it is not fun. I am sure even less fun when you have a big belly to scrub carpet and smell poop.
You are looking dashing though and some retail therapy with your sis I am sure helped.

'Please don't have a poopy holiday' haha very cute! I don't have kids but my cats have been known to get poop on the carpet- very disconcerning! I love the bright orange cardi and how neat that your sis lives in Hawaii- one of my fave places! Have a great holiday season Claire :)

LOVE that bright orange cardigan that you got for a steal! I have a shorter orangey one, but it has some decorative frills where the collar line is, so I need a plainer one....Love the leopard print as well!-Jessica
