Reverse Bad Influence

Recently, I bemoaned the difficulty of raising a two year old when said two year old is influenced by her older nephew. To wit, The Toddler started turning on the dishwasher and playing in the shower.

I am now told by MHDIL that bad influences work two ways.

According to MHDIL, after a visit to our home, Shmuel started pulling off his diaper, a trick he could only have learned from his aunt, the Toddler.

In that vein, a story.

A couple of Shabboses ago, we were eating lunch when TT, who was running around the living room, blurted out, "Big Doody".

Since TT generally only says this when it's true, I left the table to check her. I picked her up and smelled her tushy through her dress. I didn't smell anything but I figured it was probably time to change her anyway. I took her to the den, placed her on the changing mat, picked up her dress and discovered....Nothing!! No diaper, no nothing.

I cleaned her up and put on a new diaper.

Then came the search.

Where was the diaper and what was in it?

A moment later, the discovery. TT had pulled off the diaper and left it in the living room with, you guessed it, a Big Doody.

We now make sure TT is wearing a onesy whenever we put on a dress.

    I just went below 130 lbs. (129.8 to be exact). The least I could do was help a brother rider stay thin.


    YOU get back to work! If you're so busy how come you time to read my narishkeit?

    Half the posts on my blog seem to be about poop. It sort of comes with the territory. Blog on, please.
