Some of our best friends just had their baby. The background to this story is a couple nights prior I was helping the new father change the oil in his car. We were talking about spreading diaper costs for new babies out by purchasing a box of diapers each time you go to Costco. He had said that although they now have boxes and boxes of diapers their newborn doesn't fit the 1-2's yet they had purchased.
Fast forward to last night. We were invited over to their house for their babies blessing. I've never been to one before and thought a gift or card would be thoughtful. Being that I'd rather give someone a few dollars over a few words in a card I suggested to my wife that we get them something more practical. Recalling my conversation with my friend earlier I knew newborn size diapers were just the thing. Practical too.
Off to the local store we went. Newborn diapers in hand we went through the checkout line. The girl at the counter picked up the diapers and took a good smell "I just love the smell of diapers" she exclaimed. My wife and I looked at eachother as we were walking away... Awkward. We had no idea what to say.
Well, that's my funny story. Feel free to post up any of your own.
