Anyway, the boys are getting toilet trained, their babysitter is much better at this than I am. I keep forgetting to remind them to go to the toilet, and they are not so good a reminding themselves, often deciding it is a good idea to go to the potty after they have gone in their pants.
Sooo, anyway, here we are drinking
Add to this, the boys have developed a sudden, crippling, rigid body screaming fear of Dawn's beagle who is more interested in sniffing out what is in their pants than eating them. So amid the screaming, I look for a place to change them, I know it's going to be messy so I don't use the kitchen countertop like I usually do (slipping the diaper underneath to protect the food surface...I'm not a total barbarian...)
I decide to use the dog bed, it's on the floor, soft and cushy and already has a lingering aroma that matches the one in the boys pants. (I flip it over for reasons of hygiene...)
So I'm changing Marcus and I'm just about to throw the diaper on him when I hear Dawn yelling, "the scrotum, you missed the scrotum!"
Now people, I do not profess to be really good at the boy diaper thing... I started out with a girl, no wrinkly, saggy skin to wipe (no that will be me, when fate pays her back and I'm 93 and it's HER TURN to wipe my...ahem...I digress) anyway, I say "It's fine...I'll just put him in the tub later" She scoffs at me and proceeds to muscle me out of the way and takes her turn at the dog bed.
She says, "You have to SPREAD and WIPE" and proceeds to stretch the poopy, wrinkly body part (with her bare fingers..I shudder.) in question and expertly cleaned it up. She has two boys, poopy scrotums is what she knows.
I said to her, "Oh, the internet is sooo going to hear about this tomorrow!"
So now for the feeling old,
I just emailed a younger colleague (I'm 36 she's in her 20's) with a some website changes to make to market a research project I'm working on.
When she suggested some changes to make I wrote, "Make it so, #1" and then begged forgiveness for the geeky star trek reference.
She emailed me back and said, "Ha Ha, I'm confused, do you mean you want your info to be #1 on the scrolling menu?"
Sigh,..... maybe scrotums aren't the only thing wrinkly around here....
