Next time you’re lifting the 2-year-old into his booster seat and you notice that his diaper is a little, you know, cockeyed?

CHANGE IT. RIGHT THEN AND THERE.

Don’t wait until he’s eaten two tacos and a pile of chips and has disappeared upstairs for a while.

Because then? Then you’ll smell him, still forgetting about the diaper situation. And you’ll take off his shorts, be grossed out by the poo smeared on his thigh, clean it off, put clean pants on him and put him down.

And you’ll find him, minutes later, stepping on what at first appears to be one of the many shiny rocks laying around your upstairs.

The smell will hit you just as you notice his toes are SQUISHING that rock.
