This morning, The Boy and I took a shower. I got a water sling from the For Sale or Trade board on TBW.... it was nice, we both got clean, and I didn't have to worry I was gonna drop his slippery little butt.

Afterwards, I bundled him in a towel. went to put a diaper on him, when I realized that there was no left tab on the diaper.... YET againn! Damn Pampers! I swear, the last two packages I've bought have had issues. So, I put him in another diaper, and place him on our bedroom floor, while I go in search of the telephone, and jeans for him.

I was in the middle of talking to the lady from Pampers getting my replacement coupon for the f-ed up diapers. I walked into our bedroom doorway, and the smell hit me like a ton of bricks. Oh, no.... Oh, yes! The blow-out from hell. All over his (formerly) clean body, and all over our (formerly) clean carpet.

So, I threw a towel down, and got to work. All the while, talking to the Pampers beotch. She sad she needed a number that was stamped on the waistband of the diapee. Um, no, there isn't a number anywhere to be found. In between all this I've gone through every wipe in the box, and the kid is still not clean.

I finish up with her, and get The Boy onto his changing table, where I break into a new package of wipes, and go to town. Finally he's clean again.

I survey the damage to my carpet. I see that there are bright yellow splotches over about a 3 foot radius. Damn it! Then, it dawned on me that I still had my friend's Bissell Steamer that I borrowed at Christmas.... Thank God! Now my carpet is good as new. Talk about a shitty morning. At least it's got nowhere to go but up from here. I hope.

Ewwww! Reminds me of when Gavin had the stomach flu. He pooped on the carpet 5 different times. It was then I thanked God for the $250 we spent on our carpet machine. Totally came in handy.
I hate pampers just for that no tab reason. I went through 3 packages and had to have them replaced. Such a hassle!

Oh so you like the water sling? Does he normally like showers? I haven't tried Julian in the shower yet, might be a good reason to try one of the mesh slings.
