Y3 - 338/365: Hambone...and The Poo
Meet our hambone...
...and his poo?
From time to time as a parent, if you use disposable nappies, there is a chance you will come across a case of nappy rash. For Ryan it was as simple as him not showing his usual signs and we didn't smell anything to indicate he would need to be changed. So when we discovered his painful rash last night before his bath, we tried to give him as many opportunities as possible without a nappy to "air things out" down below.
After he had gone up to bed tonight, I noticed Matt over by the bay window sniffing around and swearing he could smell something. Then he says, "Oh my, hon...I think he's done a poo in his castle!"
Immediately I grabbed my camera because I couldn't believe this and while I was snapping photos, Matt grabbed some wipes and a nappy sack to clean up the mess.
After examining the pictures from the viewfinder I questioned if it "really was poo" and Matt insisted it was...until he opened the wipe that was meant to be containing the excrement, only to reveal one of Ryan's Thomas the Tank Engine magnets.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
