Dear Ann Landers,
Do you remember the old saying "April showers bring May flowers"? Well, the true story I am about to tell is a takeoff on that adage.
There was a man in our town named August Flowers. He married a woman named May. She then became May Flowers. In time, they had a baby girl and named her April. One day, friends came over to meet the newcomer. When the mother brought her out, after all the "ooohs and aaahs," she sat the baby on her lap for more admiring comments.
Suddenly, the mother looked stricken. It seems the baby had wet all over her lap. The mother then good-naturedly said, "Well, it's true. April Flowers brings May showers." -- J.P. in Gilroy, Calif.
I wonder if that good-natured mother ever heard of plastic pants that go over cloth diapers. I recommend them.
