I always felt like I should have carried an extra outfit for ME in the diaper bag as well! I would change the kid after he/she spit up, so they would be nice and clean and I would still smell like spoiled milk. :-)
I'm pretty sure it's a very highly sensitive baby radar they possess, finely tuned to recognize (and abhor) the "new clothes" and "clean clothes" smell. I remember one time we were out visiting friends and when I picked Spencer up to burp him, I said "please don't barf on mommy". I kid you not, half a second later we were both soaked. That's when I learned to pack an extra shirt for myself!!
My Wine Personality:
For the most part I’m a chardonnay, as I consider myself to exhibit a somewhat sunny and mellow disposition (most of the time), but because I find a tremendous amount of joy out of showering my two kids with hugs and kisses, I also possess the subtle sweetness often found in a riesling. But don’t be fooled. I love a great outdoor adventure and am willing to try anything once. This occasional display of boldness is thought to match that of a cabernet, whereas my appreciation for nature suggests that I have an earthy component to my personality—very characteristic of a merlot.
