We got home late for naptime, so I was hurrying to get Ali in bed, and telling her that she needed to go straight to sleep since naptime was so late.

Also, I had to change her shirt, because she was wearing (in her words,) her “Blinkedy Christmas shirt.”

Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer

Had a very blinkedy nose,

Would never let poor Ali,

Get in any naptime doze.

Sorry for that. It just came out. That’s the kind of stuff you get from live blogging.

Anyway, I was rooting around in her jammy drawer for a loose jammy shirt, and found a hand-me-down crushed velvet nightgown – something she’s never worn before.

It had princesses on it.

Three princesses.

Jasmine, Snow White, and Cinderella.

(Speaking of Princesses, be sure to check out my friend Christen’s HILARIOUS diary of babysitting Ali – Things You Learn from Babysitting a Princess.)

Back to the story.

She was beyond elated. She wanted to run and show Daddy. She begged me to let her wear it after she woke up, too. We talked about the princesses. I tried to hurry her to bed. I reminded her yet again – no talking, not even to the princesses. Straight night-night.

I came downstairs, and a friend called. As we were talking, I heard Ali on the baby monitor chanting something, quite repetitively.

Nice. So as I’m talking on the phone, I’m slightly irritated that she’s disobeying me and talking, and figuring that I need to go up there as soon as I get off the phone and tell her that I said NO talking.

I get off the phone and stop for a second to listen to what she’s chanting in her emotionless, monotone, repetitive voice:

“I don’t have a diaper on. I don’t have a diaper on. I don’t have a diaper on. I don’t have a diaper on.”

I die. Laughing, of course.

I had completely undressed her and had gotten a pull-up out (still used at naptimes around here), but her excitement about the nightgown totally made me forget to actually place said pull-up on her backside.

Thanks to Ali’s good conscience, it didn’t end nearly as crappily as it could have.

Hi. My name is Rachel, and I put my two year old to bed with a bare butt.

  1. Too funny! So glad it didn't end in disaster for you! By the way, I love Ali's Blinkedy Christmas Shirt…Luke would love one of those!

  2. Haha, at least she let you know! I was putting K down at my parents and forgot one time…yeah, pee everywhere! :)

  3. LOL. I've done that with my nephew. Then there was the time he pulled his pull up off and threw it in the trash then fell asleep on my bed. I didn't realize what he'd done until I checked on him and saw the puddle of pee on my bed.

  4. That is hilarious! Bless her little heart, trying to make sure she "controlled herself".

    The title of the post suggests you have these so-called stupid moments every day. Please continue to share them with us! It helps me feel so much better about my stupid moments!

  5. Glad I'm not the only one that's done this!

    Jen – not QUITE every day, but most days. But if I shared them ALL, I'd live in a constant state of public embarrassment. Come on, now…
