Diaper Oppression-- {pretty, happy, funny, real}


My five and a half month old (how is she that old already?) has recently decided that the thing she objects to most in this world is her diaper. She doesn't like it, doesn't want it, and will gladly tell you about it if you happen to be the unlucky soul putting her diaper back on after a changing (which happen frequently, as she is also extremely opposed to any dampness on her tushy).

Since she's been sick and I'm apparently a pushover, I decided to humor her the other day and let her roll around naked for a while on a waterproof mat in the living room.

This ended, believe it or not, with no messes whatsoever.

Unfortunately the second go-round in this experiment did not go quite as well. Yesterday I thought I'd try again, but this time just take off her diaper and see if she was as happy. She totally was and proceeded to enjoy her diaper-free playtime with wild abandon, rolling to and fro with squeaks and squeals and happy chatter until, a few minutes later, she pooped everywhere. All over her clothes, the mat, everywhere.

Did I mention we had company?

She thinks it's pretty funny.

Go join the {pretty, happy, fun, real} party over at Like Mother, Like Daughter!


  1. Oh, she is just precious! Love that smile.

  2. LOL! What a beautiful baby!
    You should do that "Elimination Communication" thing with her. You would be the envy of all your friends! She's smart enough to do it!
    Thanks for capturing the spirit of our get-together perfectly, poop and all!

  3. HAHAHAHAAA!!! That's GREAT! She suckered you with a good first go round, and BAM, gotcha on the second one!

  4. Why do they suddenly turn on us, lol? Good stuff!

  5. Funny! Love that line -- did I mention we had company! And your daughter is certainly pretty! So this post definitely qualifies.

  6. Thanks for dropping by everyone... she is definitely cute, poop and all!

  7. Oh my! I looked that up and while SHE may be smart enough to do it I'm not sure I am!

    Thanks for hosting such a fun gathering! I have loved looking at everyone else's links!
