Dear Baby Bean (1 year 1 month old),
Who knew that you would grow up so quickly. Who knew that within the matter of a day you would manage to teach yourself how to remove your diaper. Take a nice gross poop while uncovered, and manage to smear it all over your crib, you, and in places where poop definitely should not be. You woke us up at four in the morning with a present we did not expect! Daddy handed me to you and I quickly gave you a bath to get all the yuckies off. While you were getting clean in the bathtub, Daddy was in your room cleaning up “your masterpiece” from all four corners of your crib. Nice one, Bean. You really know how to wake us all up with a bang (and very foul smell I must add).
From this day forth, you go to bed with pants always on. From this day forth, gone are your days of freedom. Running around the house in just a diaper. Not no more my friend. You know a new trick now and it is one that mommy doesn’t really approve of.
If I were you, I would learn a new trick. That way you can go back to being the carefree baby that we all know and love, not this little poop monster we saw the other morning.
