Baby Jack - What a Palava

Monday Night is our quality time with Grandson Jack.
Tonight he went for a long stroll with Granda in his new pushchair, we had bought one for home previously but we both hated it, we kept stepping on the brake and all but going head first over the handle was a nightmare.
Tonight Jack graced us with one of those nappies that no one wants to have to deal with, squishing out the sides up his back and even in his tummy button (urghhhhh)
What a palava, we whipped off the nappy and I held him at arms length whilst Granda tried best he could to wipe him down.
Auntie Natalie cockled and ran out of the room.
I then tried to strip him as the bath was the only place he was going to get clean and by this time it was all over his vest and my hands.
You'll be pleased to know he is now clean as a whistle and smelling like a new teacake again.
This is a picture of him with a crust of wholemeal bread on Saturday.

He's absolutely gorgeous Jak :) And the nappy? Remember thiose well. But unbelievably we had one nappy change even worse, haha! Like you two we struggled & got all out g/daughter's clothes & us covered, as you do. Yes, we ran to give her a nice bath, only for her to continue in the once fragrant, clean warm water, lololol!
Watch out for that trick, hehehe.
They're soooo worth it tho, & your little Jack is looking really good.

Here Downunder we refer to them as number 3's. Absolutely yucky aren't they. But we all survive them.

Kathryn said...

your post made me laugh so much. My daughter is 3 now but I remember well those 'change the whole outfit and dump in the bath' nappies, always when we were out, so lucky you did have the bath to hand, lol.
