Ah, the predictability…

Life’s little ironies.  There are many of them.  Once upon a time, Alanis Morisette wrote a song about it, just in case we needed any more.

(If you didn’t know what irony was, the Oatmeal can set you straight.)

Anyhow, today was one of those moments that mums everywhere will no doubt relate to.

You change a nappy.  You take baby downstairs.  By the time you have got  to the bottom step, you have to turn round and go back again, because baby has done something so smelly you can’t possibly pretend it was merely passing wind.

This is extremely common.  It happens more than 50% of the time.  I’m fairly sure that smallest one waits for a nice clean nappy to do her business in it, but her motivation perplexes me.  Is it that she wants it done cleanly? Is it that she wants me to get through an adequate number of nappies in a day?

Isnt this baby the cutest?

Or is it my undivided attention on the changing mat that she craves more of?

Crafty little thing.  But that’s fine by me..I get her undivided attention too.
