Truth Be Told Tuesdays #10 – Going Commando

No, not me, just to clarify (although that would be a good Truth Be Told Tuesday confession!).

Truth Be Told, I let my not-yet-potty-trained 2 year old go commando when I didn’t have a diaper to change her in to.

Last week I took my daughter to the mall to play after we dropped my son off at school. Right as we were getting ready to pack up and leave, she informed me that she had a “poopy.” I said, “ok, let’s go change it and then we’ll go home.” But as I reached in to my bag to pull out the diaper and wipes, there were none! YIKES! I tried to talk her in to sitting on it until we could get home (ew, yuck!), but she didn’t go for that idea (surprise). So I did the next most logical thing. I took her diaper off, wiped her bottom with some Handi-wipes I THANKFULLY had in my purse and let her go commando. I was sure to stress to her that she wasn’t wearing a diaper so she couldn’t “pee” until we got home (which thankfully is only about 10 minutes away). And thanks to all of the green lights I hit, we made it home without any accidents. But you better believe the car is now stocked with extra diapers!

Ok, now it’s your turn. Tell us your truth. This is the one day a week when we get to confess what our lives are really like. The rest of the week we can pretend that we have it all together and that our house is spotless and our children are perfect and we are the model parent. But for today at least, let’s embrace our imperfections!

And as always, if you like Truth Be Told Tuesday, spread the word so everyone can get in on the fun!


  1. So funny- but that sounds like something I would do. When we were out of diapers one time I had to borrow a girl pull-up for my son. I'll try not to let him know so it won't scar him forever. I love reading these open confessions of yours. You're a hoot!!

  2. Ha ha, classic! thank you green lights!!!

    Truth be told, I forgot to pack back-up inderwear when I went camping one time and was forced to wear the same pair for 3 days. Ick. I actually would have gone commando, but wearing jeans without underear pretty much sounds like death to me, ha ha. Luckily, I spent a fair amount of time in my swim suit, so it wasn't so so bad. talk about "roughing it" ha ha!

  3. That first word was obvisously supposed to say "underwear."

  4. truth be told that happened to me once... lucky me it was a hard poop and i dumped it in the toilet and put the diaper back on til we got home.


I LOVE to hear from you guys! You all are the GREATEST! (And I love to reply to comments so make sure you have an email address attached to your Blogger Profile!)
