My neck, my neck
We went out to dinner last night. For the most part, Casey did pretty well. Toward the end, he did get a little restless while confined to his high chair, so I took him out and walked around with him while Mommy finished up. He got a little tired of walking, so I thought I’d hoist him on my shoulders and let him ride around. So, I lifted him up over my head, his legs straddling my head, and rested him on my neck and shoulders… and all of a sudden, my neck felt really warm… and moist. Hmmm, I wonder when was the last time we changed his diaper? Oh well, too late now. He starts fussing, so instinctively, I start bouncing him up and down on my neck. All the while picturing the squishing, smooshing and sponging of whatever is oozing out of/ through his diaper onto my neck. Of course, he enjoys the bouncing, so I have no choice to keep going. All I could think of was getting home and taking a shower, and scrubbing my neck… Ah, the joys of parenting.
