How the Hell do Pack N' Plays Break??? Really???

So Baby Boy's mom told me he woke up at 5am this morning which was sure to throw off his schedule and make him crankier. So around 8:45 or 9:00am when I go to put this sweet, angelic, tired baby down for a nap, what do I realize? The top rail of the Pack N' Play is snapped in two! Really! You have to be kidding me! Baby Boy is 15 months old but weighs a mere 19 pounds which should not be strong enough to break a Pack N' Play. Now I am completely baffled! To make matters worse I have plans to take the kids to the library and run into Sunflower Farmers Market for some $1.97 per pound chicken and being without a Pack N' Play throws a huge wrench into my nap time plans. After trying to see if it will somehow go back together and be safe enough for one nap I give up and realize there is no fixing the Pack N' Play. This Pack N' Play is borrowed from a friend, nearly 10 years old and has been used by a few babies but the rail is inch thick plastic and should not break.

Now I have to pack up the 4 kids in various stages of getting ready from still in PJ's to showered and run to the church where I work as a nursery attendant. Luck for me there are two Pack N' Plays in the nursery. One I keep set up and hardly ever use and another I have never even opened. Crisis averted. Once we return it is nearly 10:00am and besides another fresh diaper I also decide baby boy needs a snack before nap time. After all this fuss his he is finally asleep at 10:40am for his 8:45am nap. So much for a schedule today!

Schedule?!?! Ha, schedules and toddlers can't really co-exist...
