Shane left for his football match this morning and I figured it was high time Elijah's nappy was changed, so in I went to the nursery and lo and behold it's pooey for the second time in a row this morning. Must be to make up for the fact that there had been nothing for three days. It was so explosive that it had seeped through the top of the nappy and the cover and wet his singlet slightly. Nice.
Meanwhile, Elijah decides that it's time to do chunky spews that run down underneath his head and get into his hair. Super.
Anyway, I finally got him (both ends) cleaned up, with not much help either, as he spent most of the time squirming and whinging that his nappy rash hurt, and I was letting him have a bit of a kick as I grabbed a cloth to put him dry and suddenly there was wee everywhere. So then I had THAT to clean up. Luckily I saw it in time and was able to prevent his other clothes from getting wet, though by this time the singlet was pretty much drenched. Lovely.
Of course, Elijah is not complaining anymore. In fact, he thinks this is the funniest thing ever.
I reached for the nappy to put it on him and then realised that poo was running across the change table and heading for the edge! Just fabulous!
So I grabbed some more cloth wipes and managed to save our carpet and his clothes from the poo and then had to clean him up AGAIN!
And Elijah is happily lying there, kicking his legs and smiling, because of course, this is the FUNNIEST THING EVER!! *shakes head*
Then I had to get all the poo out of the crevices and underneath the change mat attached to the table.
At least it was third time lucky - after that, I managed to get the nappy on and change his clothes without further incident.
