Having two babies, naturally I have a lot of time to hone my diaper changing skills.

This is delightful!

 I mean, it's gross and stinky and sometimes fills up an entire diaper so that wrapped up it's like a soft, odorous  bomb.  Along with this, there's the obligatory struggling of a baby anxious to be moving around.  And getting away from the cold wet cloth on their tender little bum.

So it usually ends up looking like this:

That is fine.  I hardly notice the struggling.  It's all part of the unpleasant process.

What's infuriating is when the baby decides to be cute.

There they are, with rotten, sulphurous poo in a sticky film all over their butt, and they are cooing and smiling and gurgling happily.  They are so cute it is impossible to be irritated.

 It's like they know what they are putting you through and they are filled with delight at the idea.  It is positively rude.

I am going to bed now.  But here is the latest portrait I've done.  It's so much fun!
