I’ve seen things y’all.
I’ve seen things no one should ever see. I’ve stared in the eyes of doom…. AND into the eyes of a pooping toddler. There’s no coming back from that. No. Coming. Back.
Recently my one year old daughter contracted a double ear infection. Now, on a good day, she’s 50% horrible. Throw in a major illness and that ratchets up to, I don’t know… 375%? That’s math, right?
While her mother and I usually commiserate over her BM’s and say things like, “How? How does that come out of something so little? It should be measured and studied by scientists. She may be Elasti-Girl.” Currently we’re experiencing a whole new level of brown hell. Anti-biotics are harsh on a baby’s system. Mix with that her self imposed liquid diet of “NO! DON’T WANT!!”, and you have a fountain of bad.
So it goes without saying that I’m thankful, in these times of need, that someone, some GENIUS, invented the disposable diaper. I know there are cloth diaper fans out there, I am NOT one. I want this S*@# out of my house. Tout Suite!
to the woman or man that designed the disposable diaper. I want to plant a big wet kiss on his or her mouth
Now, this post was sponsored by Pampers and their #ThanksBaby campaign. I am always happy to work with companies that love parents, but Pampers is synonymous with the word diaper in my house. The brand is the thing. I’m thankful to have baby Alexi in my life. I’m thankful my wife is a wonderful partner and takes such great care of my children. I’m thankful of the oldest child, and how he steps up and changes a dirty nappy on occasion.
But to the woman or man that designed the disposable diaper. I want to plant a big wet kiss on his or her mouth. A sloppy kiss. Are you still out there Mr. Pamper? Because I’m all chapsticked up and ready to go.
Christian has had many roles in life. He’s been a minister’s son, a poor student, a computer geek, a bible college dropout, a corporate suit, a traveling comedian, and a failure at much he’s tried. But he counts 2 huge successes in his life. He is husband to a wonderful wife, and father of two exceptional kids he wanted, a third ‘surprise baby’, and a In 2015, they met yet another surprise, as their fourth (and prayerfully last) child defeated birth control with her sheer will to exist. Having just missed Aaron in college by a few years, they connected online, finding they had a similar sense of humor [read: DARK] and decided to launch PlaidDadBlog. Christian hosts the ‘What Are We Watching?‘ podcast with his son Carlin, and just launched a new web series, DadSews, where he learns (an fails) to sew LIVE on camera.
