A little ingenuity and a sense of humor got us out of a soggy situation yesterday. Little Man was eager to run off some energy at a neighborhood park. He bee-lined it to the super, fast slide and down he went. In the rainy northwest, every park veteran knows to check slides for water before sliding. My guy made a rookie mistake. His pants were soaked from waist band to hemline-all the way through to his underwear. Yep, pretty much ended park time.
We hustled to the car and I quickly shifted into crisis management. I had him strip and wrap up in a blanket, which I luckily carry in my emergency box. I didn't have time to go home, so I used my car heater vents as a dryer. The pants would have taking a week to dry, so I dried his underwear instead. Little Man giggled and giggled in the back seat. We were headed into Seattle, so I bought him a new pair of warm ups when we arrived and the rest of our day went off without a hitch.
What crazy solutions have you come up with on the spur of the moment?
