Here is how I change Jordan's diaper now. Both legs pin his arms down as his face turns beet red from the wails and resistance. His legs are motionless in the photo, but in reality, they kick out and down, banging the floor and making the already difficult task of changing a diaper upside down, even more challenging. Sometimes, I think he is in pain. Are my thunder thighs suffocating him? Is the upside down view of Mommy too much? Is his bum more red than I can see from where I currently reside during changes? Abandon those thoughts! Any weakness will enable him to escape! To roll over, diaperless, maybe staining the floor, or worse, your pants *gulp, man up! Suck it up! No prisoners!
How do I know I'm not really hurting him? That it's all a game to him? That I must contain the situation and ensure victory on my part before he goes to war with me?!
Because within nanoseconds, he's smiling and cooing, and playing all around.
Sneaky little cute adorable precious baby of mine. Please stop rolling over during diaper changes. Or at least poop when Daddy is home so I have an extra pair of hands to help me!
