This caught me completely off guard

I saw this for the first time at about 11:30 with Mrs. E. We were both taken completely unawares and just about died laughing. I so sympathize.

I almost hate to ask, but what are your diaper experiences? Go ahead, get it off you chest. It won't make me sick to read the stories.

When I first started babysitting, around age 11 or 12, some of our across-the-street neighbors trusted me with their son, who at the time was about 7-8 months old, or however old they are when they start to get mobile. I had no idea what I was doing with the diaper changing thing, but when I turned my back for a second - a SECOND! - the kid crawled off the bed that was used as a changing table and dropped three feet to the floor. I was so scared I'd caused permanent damage, but his mother just laughed and said that he did that from time to time.

Oh, yeah, we've had the kids roll off the bed too many times to count. They're amazingly springy!

Our worst diapers came from Lil'E. Lil'er E has never really unleashed his fire hose on us - thankfully! - but Lil'E as a newborn gave us a run for out money. Two words: Projectile Poop. Every time the diaper came off, she would launch an offensive. We, literally, were cleaning poop off the walls every day for a while. And until she was around two, she would fill the diaper to the point of having a hull breach and lose containment of the toxic waste. Never see this with Lil'er E (though he has his issues, too).

Now my kids can come back in 10 or 20 years and read this horrified. I've done my job as parent, then.

Well, I missed it as the video is no longer available. I'm assuming I should consider myself lucky...?

The only bad diapering surprises were the ones at church when we were new parents...let me just say our daughter went home wrapped in a blanket.

Who'd have thought to bring a change of clothes?

(Probably normal people.)

Jsue, I've updated the link - don't know what happened to the old one, but this is worth watching.

Change of clothes - I think we had a similar problem (it's all kinda hazy now).

Oh my goodness! I just saw this today and was considering putting this on my WOW Wednesday post tomorrow.

Thanks, E...back to the net for more material.

You know, I bet those ladies in the nursery laugh at us "young" parents and all our (we'll just call them 'learnings')
