Little children can be so cute, yet so gross. And they have no shame whatsoever. Ah the innocense of youth.
You know what I mean. I’m sitting here with our handsome 7 mo old, admiring our work and all the while he’s passing gas. Not a care in the world that his mommy’s blaming me for the strange, but somehow familiar smell that’s overtaking the entire room. I swear, it’s a daily event here.
It must be daddy’s fault. He’s definitely his father’s son. God, he stinks like you. I’ve heard it all now.
The cute little buggers can laugh and play and be so cute then, BANG! Another smell crushes your senses and it’s diaper change time. I really hate that. He’ll just giggle away while I have to clean something I don’t even like doing for myself! Stinky, stinky, stinky!
And what is it with boys that like to spray everywhere? The first couple of changes were challenging as this is my first child and I’ve never had to change diapers. DO NOT, under ANY circumstances, leave a boy exposed to the air. There’s something about air and exposed flesh that cause near instantaneous fountains of urine that’s sure to go all over the place including you, your cloths, sofa, carpet, wall, etc.
For number ones, I’ve learned to position the new diaper under him, then quickly slide the spoiled one out and cover with the new one. Clean as needed.
Number twos are risky. I get the replacement diaper ready and set next to the boy, but out of reach, otherwise he’ll grab it and the whole plan goes in the toilet….
Then I pull out and position a few wipes on the otherside of him, slide the old diaper down some, wipe down and put nasty wipes on spoiled diaper covering the mess so he doesn’t roll into it. During this whole ordeal I’m coughing and gagging, but making my way through it just praying he doesn’t spray. I can’t wait to get the new diaper on him.
I’m always relieved when another change goes without a hitch. Or better still, his mama changes it. Yeah, that’s my favorite!
I love this little monster child, but this boy sure can be gross. Time give him a kiss.
