When I pictured NYE at Disneyland, I did not picture dealing with my most horrible diaper-gone-awry mess to date with bad wipes and a handful of damp paper towels. In a public changing stall.
I did not imagine how embarrassing it would be to spend ten minutes trying to clean up a mess only a bathtub was adequate for.
On the bright side, I also didn’t imagine you, the mom who would stop and ask, “Are you OK? Do you need anything? I have spare clothes.”
By the time you saw me and asked, I was almost done. But your question made me feel not alone, and turned my frown right upside down.
Like I told you then, I thank you so much just for asking. Your questions alone, and the care behind them, were all the help I needed.
Happy new year to you, all of you who stop and ask! May your new year be full of many sweet tidings.
