Grandpa Moments

Visiting my son and his family I have had a few "Grandpa Moments."  At one point I was watching Louisville beat Duke.  My daughter-in-law's mother is a professor at Duke so we had some loyalty there.  During the game my eight year old granddaughter came into the living room with a stuffed animal and a baby bottle.  She said the little dog needed to be fed.  I dutifully cradled the toy dog and put the bottle to his mouth as I watched the game.  A few trips back and forth across the court passed and I realized I was only one in the living room and I still had this stuffed animal in my arms and was holding a baby bottle to it's mouth.......

Despite my best efforts I ended up with my two and a half year old grandson when he had a messy diaper.  I took responsibility for changing him.  Sometimes fortune smiles on the oblivious and, much to the amusement of everyone else,  when I put another diaper on him, I apparently put it on inside out.  This simple, but unintentional act, should excuse me from diaper duty the rest of the trip.
