Heard From the Other Room

With commentary

Do need your diaper changed, little girl? Let's see what you've got for Daddy. It's another poopy diaper! Let's get you cleaned up.

Bright orange.

(Me, incredulous) Orange?

Well, it's yellow.

Oop! She put her foot in it.

Oh dear.

And now... Ah, it's a fountain of pee. ... It missed the diaper.

Oo, that's too bad. That's why I don't take away the old diaper until I am ready to whisk the new one into place.

Yeah. (talking to baby) I think you picked just that moment to pee on purpose. You said, "Oh, I'll help Daddy out."

There's a lot going on in here...

I'll say!

Oy! Stop laughing at us men.

Ready with your best Henry Higgins voice? Right then:

Why can't a woman
Be more like a man?
Men are so decent,
Such regular chaps.
Ready to help you
Through any mishaps.
Ready to buck you up
Whenever you are glum.
Why can't a woman be a chum?

I'm not laughing at him, I'm laughing with him! Okay, so he wasn't really laughing. But he was amused when I told him I'd turned it into a blog post.

Does he have the latex gloves and clothes peg on the nose like Mr Mom?

You can tell him that I got "rained" on during one of my nappie changing adventures. Also tell him that he's in for a treat once solids become the norm.

No, actually, he's become The Diaper Master, dealing with all manner of poop mishaps with bare hands and aplomb.

We both have gotten showered upon... and other stuff best left unmentioned. Nice things about girls - they usually accomplish less distance when they turn on the pee works. She makes up for it with other impressive work, though.

Thanks for the heads up about the solids. Can't wait. :)
