Little Mister = Little Monkey

First there was the climbing.

Second came an incident that occurred just a few minutes ago. I was changing a not-very-sweet-smelling diaper when he thrashed and wiggled and kicked, all in one motion, almost flinging himself off the changing table. While I wrestled him back onto the table and onto his back - without my noticing - he stuck his hand down into his diaper. When I had a clean diaper on him I looked at his face...which was, of course, smeared with his "treasure." Mostly around his mouth. He looked at me, smiled, and threw the rest of his findings onto the floor.

It seems his transformation is nearly complete.

If he starts trying to pick (invisible) bugs out of my hair, I'm calling a zoo.

  4. I have somehow managed to keep Lance from digging in his diaper. I don't know how, but I'm very glad!

    There was a time, however, when I tried letting his little bottom have some "air time" and I put him down on a blanket (this was before he could crawl.) I left the room for half a minute, and when I came back, he had pooed all over the place.

    He is never without a diaper now, except during bathtime. I don't care what the experts say. They're not the ones that have to clean up the mess!

  7. I have to add..

    It was funny. I didn't laugh at the time, but he just looked so proud of himself...when it was all over, I just sat and laughed.

  8. My son loves to stick his hand down there when I change stinky diapers. I usually hand him a wipe before I take off his diaper and that seems to keep him occupied long enough to get most of it cleaned up before he tries to grab it. I just try to get him to wash his face with it or something.

  9. So far I've been able to stop TLP from getting 'treasure' from her diaper. Barely. She certainly tries.

  10. Hahahaha so funny, thank you for sharing that. I don't have any children as yet but when I do I'll be sure to keep this in mind.

  11. OH dear! My three year old started pooping on the potty this weekend, I need to remember these days more when I think potty training isn't going well. Those days were way worse!

  12. Yikes!

    Luckily neither one of my kids ever did the diaper-digging. I'm not sure I could have taken it.

  13. Ew! They're twisty little creatures, aren't they?

  14. Oh My - they are fun, aren't they?

    Have a good day - Kellan

  16. The Baby - while leaving any fecal treasures well alone now, since she is three and all - will sit there and pick through my hair while I nap, just like a good little baby monkey. So maybe you could look forward to that, after he outgrows the poo throwing.

  20. Ohhhhh...I am laughing...hard! But don't worry, you are not the only one raising a poo-flinging monkey. I have one that tried to do that EVERYTIME I changed his diaper. We started calling our "big pooper."
