Parenting

Well, good morning to you, too!

It was bound to happen eventually.  I did it to my mother, after all.  It’s practically a family tradition now.

Let me back up.

I was in that place between sleep and consciousness, where I knew I needed to get up, but I was still relishing those last few minutes of shut-eye.  Little Man was starting to make noise from his crib, and my wonderful husband popped his head in the door and told me that he would get him.  As I was relaxing and marveling at how wonderful my husband is, I hear the following:

“Honey, we have a problem.”

duhn duhn DUHN

It turns out that Little Man had a diaper explosion, was intrigued and did some finger-painting in his crib, on the wall, on his toys, and all over himself.  ewwwwww.

Thankfully, Hub is on an easy rotation right now, and we were able to tag-team Little Man.  Hub took him to the tub and scrubbed him down (after removing the massive diaper and doing the necessary pre-cleaning).  I tackled the crib, bumpers, toys, sheets and whatever else I thought might have become contaminated.

giraffey, freshly cleaned, and perhaps a little embarrassed.

These are the moments of parenting when I understand why children are made to be so cute.

Also, I think these blog posts are today’s equivalent of last generation’s nude photos.

  1. My babysitter one morning was soooo happy that I work at home so when Reena started finger painting with the contents of her diaper (guess what she painted……. her brother!) — she could yell for me and *I* could be the one to deal with the tub emergency. I wonder how long the babysitter had turned her head….

    Mazel tov on Moshe’s newfound fingerpainting skills…. *lol*

  2. Ah! That’s so funny, and I’m sure twice as challenging with the twins! I’m hoping Moshe is going to find a different outlet for his artistic tendencies.

tell me about it!
