Every once in a while I run across a blog with a story behind it, the kind that makes me smile and feel a bit more encouraged to “not grow weary in well doing”. The Mary Frances Project was started by two women in honor of their grandmother, Mary Frances, who found herself unexpectedly having to raise her six children without her husband on the Canadian Prairie. It is a quick read and quite inspiring.
I also found a practical and QUICK project for anyone dealing with kids who might be out and about and find themselves with an unexpected spill or leakage issue.
You would think that I would be prepared for these things after dealing with so many babies… but alas, I was in the middle of our local thrift store, thrifting away, when I spied (and smelled) a major PROBLEM. They don’t have a public restroom so I sat in the fitting room with a squirmy baby on my lap and changed that diaper in a couple seconds flat. I then apologized PROFUSELY to a kind lady who said “hey… we all have children. You do what you have to do. Don’t apologize to us”. I was so thankful for a gracious word from this random stranger. BUT I was not so thankful that I had no protective place to store the yucky duds. We used a plastic bag from the store but I think a “wet bag” would have been handy to keep the mess and smell contained.
Ok… I have rambled on enough. Here’s what you are looking for…. The Wet Bag Tutorial from Mary Frances Project. Great idea for a baby shower gift!
