Ode to Sammy

Here is a little story to sure put a smile on your face.

The other morning my two year old daughter decided to pour her bottle of water over herself whilst I was driving. After sitting in that soaked car seat she was very very wet. Being the super organised mum that I am I didn't have a spare pair of pants with me.(bugger) Luckily the physio didnt care that she had completely wet pants on.... next stop was my gym where I was having a training session with a friend. I had no time to go home and get new pants so I texted my friend to see if she had anything in the cupboard of her daughters that mine could borrow. Although there is a three year age difference I was pretty confidant she could find something for Saf that she could get through the next hour in without feeling like she went to the toilet on herself several times over. Ofcourse I got a reply back saying "no problem."

When I got to the gym my friend told me that she just couldn't find anything that would fit my daughter........so.......SHE MADE HER A PAIR OF PANTS TO WEAR!!!!!!!!.



In, like twenty minutes!!!

Aren't you all jealous that she is my friend!!!!!!!!!!

A very thoughful and generous one at that!!!

They were such a hit I believe you may be even to get some yourself. They are Ace. Over the next few days . watch this space



I guess I should also mention that it is my husbands birthday today. He doesn't like too much of a fuss made for his birthday - what is it with men. I guess there hasn't been to much excitement going on in the Mr. Davey camp due to an excessive bout of gastro and doing his knee at indoor soccer. Gross I know. But hey what is a blog without sharing????

He scored a vintage croquet set from here.

More about him here.

Happy Birthday Willy you big spunk!

Your friend could start a business. Spilled coffee on yourself minutes before an important meeting? Dial whizzme and her instant wardrobe rescues.

Happy Birthday Mister Davey.

Here's a little wet-pants story!
A couple of years ago, our family were on holiday in Tassie and set off for the day, down to Cockle Creek on the furthest Southern Coast. We stopped to do a tour through some caves where my daughter wet her pants. We put her in a towel in the car (aged about 5) and continued on our journey. We reached the very tip of Tassie & I saw in someones yard a clothesline full of kids clothes. As we drove slowly past, I also spied a sign advertising a charity shop. This little home doubled as an op-shop, and the lovely woman opened up just for us to buy some replacement pants. So sweet!
Wet pants suck!! What a cool & quick buddy to have.

Wow - that is so cool that your friend just whipped up pants like that !

As for b'days, we don't acknowledge them here either ( well, except for the little guy ).

Most people don't even know the birthdates of me & the mister, and we like it that way.

We're shy, y'see.

What a whiz Sam is, I guess that makes her blog name very appropriate. Happy birthday to Willy, hope he's feeling better.

I can't believe she made pants that quickly on the spur of the moment!!
I had a wet pants and gym moment today too when I had to change my nearly 2 yr old outside in the back of the CRV (she seems to need to poo whenever I'm at the gym?!#@). After removing the offending nappy she then proceeded to wee everywhere all over her clothes and the back of the car! For the first time EVER I actually had one of her dresses in the car with me and was able to change her. It's warm today and the car smells lovely!!
