Celebrating the changing of the underpants!

I got an email on the weekend from Erin, saying that she finally had a week off work.  She has not had a week off since Christmas.   So, I phoned her this afternoon but she was out.  I left a message with her husband. 
That was at 1pm
It's now 7:30pm and I never heard back from her.  Okay, I called her again.  The chat went like this.

Me:  What I get you from?

Erin:  Yay! You going to put those on.... not much trying to get your Nephew to put his underwear on. Potty training is so much fun.

Me:  Lovely.  this is why I don't have kids. I called earlier.

Erin: When?  There wasn't any message on the machine.

Me: Around 1:00.  You're husband answered.

Erin: Oh Gibby.  After 15 years you should know by now not to leave messages with the Man as he never remembers to tell me. Leave a message on the machine.

Me: But he answered. What was I suppose to do, tell him to hang up so I could phone back and leave a message on the machine?

Erin: Yeah actually you should have, that way I would have gotten the message... No! Don't touch...... (click)

I phoned back.

Erin: Sorry. Nephew started to slap at the phone.  He's dancing around in circles celebrating.

Me: Celebrating what?

Erin: The changing of the underpants.   He's graduated from diapers to those Pull-Ups.  (little voice squealing that he's a big boy and that only babies wear diapers)  I'll have to call you back.
