This afternoon, I came up from my office to get a cup of tea. Sharon was eating her lunch with James looking on from his high chair. I went over to say hello and noticed that James had some mustard-colored substance on his leg. I was just about to ask Sharon how she got this yellow goo on him when I noticed exactly where it originated: from James’ own leaky diaper! Then I noticed he had poop all over his leg and foot, on his hand, his clothes, and the high chair.
Usually when he poops while in his high chair, it’s very audible and he starts to fuss quite a bit. Not this time. He just sat there quietly, acting all ‘innocent’.
So, being the nice guy that I am, I helped with the two-man carry to the changing table and assisted in the delicate clothing and diaper change.
It’s quite astonishing just how much fecal matter can be generated from such a tiny creature. It’s almost unnatural how far it can be spread about. I look upon the next few years with fear as James’ intestines grow yet larger and he begins eating solid food. I’ve heard some real horror stories.
