So today, after I woke up from a lovely sleep in (this a huge shout out to my awesomely understanding husband who totally gets the fact that sometimes I don’t get home from work until 3am, and if I can sleep I will) I had just enough time to turn on the Keurig before Liam woke up from his morning nap and started playing with his dolls in his crib. He sounded like he was in an awesome mood so I headed right up to get him so we could have some fun. That is when I walked into a naked butt in the air as he was working on standing up.
That is right… a NAKED BUTT!
My jaw may have literally dropped. Casually tossed over the edge of the crib was his diaper… he decided the shirt could stay on.
Because Liam is only 14 months old there was no hope in the universe that he did not pee all over the bed. So I gingerly reached a hand down and did the touch test… yes, it was wet. Awesome.
As my dreams of packing up the family for a trip to York’s Wild Animal Kingdom flew out the window and visions of endless loads of laundry jumped into my head I picked up my kiddo at arms length, brought him into his bathroom, placed him into the tub and proceeded to break one of the two cardinal child bathing rules that have been drilled into my head since I was a young girl who was slightly obsessed with The Babysitter’s Club, I turned on the water while he was in the tub. No, I did not burn my child, but his bubble bath might have been a little colder than usual. Honestly, he didn’t seem to mind.
Conan very nicely brought me a cup of coffee while I was supervising the tub time. He can be totally credited with saving my sanity with that one small act. (yes, yes, I know, I have a caffeine “problem”)
Does anyone else have any diaper removal stories? Are there any hints or tricks to getting the little guy to not keep doing it? He was so very impressed with himself when I found him, and although I did not make a big deal out of it (to him anyway) I have a feeling that my stubborn little one will keep up the trick now that he has figured it out.
