#730 When the baby’s diaper isn’t as bad as you were expecting

Unwrap me if you dareChanging diapers is not awesome.

In fact, it’s probably something you’d find over on 1000 Annoying Things, that non-existent netherlist we mentioned before which also features #998 When you realize you’re out of deodorant as you’re putting it on, #997 Forgetting your umbrella at the restaurant, and #996 When the hot water runs out before you rinse out your shampoo.

Mommy and daddy, you know what I’m talking about. Sure, you love your child, and yes, you rationally understand that frequent bowel movements are a sign of good health, but when you groan and grog-waddle over to the crib at three in the morning, it’s just not a pretty scene.

That’s why it’s so great when you’re expecting Number 2, but get lucky and just score a leaky Number 1 diaper. It’s like a tiny present from your little bundle of joy. So high-five the little slugger before pulling the quick-wipe and slapping on a new dipe.

  1. Dirty diapers are the worst. Potty training a difficult toddler is definitely on “1000 Annoying Things.” But yeah, every diaper change that doesn’t involve any #2 is a good change, in my opinion.

  2. OMG this reminds me of the time, well, no. you don’t wanna know but it involved leaving the baby without a diaper for just a split-second. Really massive things can happen in that very short time period.

  3. Truly awesome is when you just know it’s a bowel bomb in there and your wife says, “I’ll get this one, honey. You got the last one.”

  4. On occasion my kids would psych me out with a really raunchy fart that would have me grabbing the wipes and chasing them down to find… nothing but the smell.

  5. I though I was the first to call this wonderful world, “Awesome Land!”
    That’ll teach me for being late!
    What an adorable little child in the photo!

  6. I remember once when my little cousin [who was still wearing diapers (he was about 1)] asked me (I’m 12) to change his diaper and he made a massive #2 partly #3 but ya it smelled HORRIBLE!..
