Any other moms out there in Internet-land feel like their lives are beginning to revolve around diaper changes? Our schedule looks something like this: wake up, diaper change, breakfast, play, diaper change, lunch, play, diaper change, nap, diaper change, snack, play, diaper change, dinner, play, bath, diaper change, bedtime, wake up, diaper change and do it all over again. With the days flying by so fast right now, I feel like we measure time by diaper changes: How long since the last diaper change? How long can we go before the next one? Rock paper scissors who has to change the stinky one! NOT IT.
And diaper changes have never been all that easy with Mac. He's always been a very "active" child, so diaper changes are a wrestling match between the two of us, which despite being bigger and stronger, I never seem to win. He starts rolling and it's 360 degrees of flying poop everywhere! Not fun. Mac is also now very interested in what I'm doing down there and wants to help, which usually ends up with at least one of us covered in poop or getting peed on (I'm sure you can figure out which one it usually is). Why is it that diaper commercials always show a sweet and happy baby lying on the table so calm and still, while the mom sings and the baby coos? Does that really happen? Mac screams and kicks and spins like a tornado. I need a diaper changing table with shackles, belts and straps and I still don't think that would work.
I also live in constant terrifying fear of running out of diapers. Is this normal? This makes me feel like such a...mom, I guess. Now I tend to stockpile diapers and wipes. We have a whole shelf in a closet dedicated to diapers and wipes and I get really fidgety when we start getting low. I figure these are things you just can't ever have too many of, right? I usually stop by CVS on my way home from work and grab a couple packs of diapers and wipes to add to the stockpile. They always have our favorite brand (and they sell wine too, so it's really win-win for everyone). I really do not want to get caught anywhere at anytime without diapers on hand - it makes me break out into a sweat just thinking about it. Oh, the horrors.
(this is what I wish my stockpile looked like)
