I was sitting, help out with some personal care with my son when I remember a funny thing that happened; well funny for everyone else. I thought I'd share this embarrassing moment with you all.
When my daughter, who is now almost 9 (one more month left), was only 18 months old; we went for a family holiday to Majorca. We did this quite a few years beyond this, by the way, only I didn't make the same mistake twice.
Anyhow, back to the story. So, we finished our holiday and we had a few nappies left. However, our friends who also had a daughter just a couple of months older needed some - so we said they could take the few we had left as we had a load of swimming nappies. We could use those.
So, they took the nappies and when we needed to change our daughter, we put on a swimming nappy. All good.
We caught our bus transport to the airport. We waited around, as you do. Then we got on our plane. As she was under 2 years, our daughter sat on my lap with the extra harness around her.
We took off, all was good. Now, this is only around a 2-hour flight so not too bad. Anyhow, it was about halfway through when I felt it. My lap felt damp. Low and behold, my daughter had pee'd and, we didn't realize, swimming nappies - at least the ones we had - didn't seem to hold pee very well; if they do at all?
She had wee'd; it had gone through her nappy and clothes soaked my lap. It was ok as we had a change of clothes for her... However, I had to go through the rest of the flight, get off the flight and walk till we got our suitcases; looking like I had pee'd myself.
As you can imagine, my wife was almost weeing herself at me having to do this.
So there you have it. I had a wet lap at 30,000ft and all the way from arrivals till suitcase pickup at Gatwick airport. Needless to say, I never made that mistake twice. Though it wasn't the only time I had a wet lap from being wee'd on. But those are the embarrassing stories I am keeping till she is 18.
