Gross Dirty Diaper – Read on if you dare…

So at 5:30 this morning Will is up and about and standing up in the crib. Daniela is like change his diaper you lazy bastard so I went and gone done it. Now Will likes to shake shake and kick his legs when you pick him up. So as I’m getting him over to the the changing table I hear these splat sounds on the floor and I go what the hell is that? Is he puking? and Dani’s like– so what just change the freaking diaper. then I feel splat splat on my foot and its dark so i can’t make out what it was but it looked white and maggot-like,. Now Will is happily kicking about and every time he kicks this splat happens. So my wife turns on the lights and it was the freaking absorbent chemical shit flying our of the diaper and it got all over the place these tiny pee absorbed things of like couscous consistency.

So what the hell is this stuff? Well let’s ask the handy dandy Google machine to find out…

“Google machine. I have a question – ‘what’s the bead like stuff in diapers'”

and the #1 answer…

So there you have it a little gross, and I learned something. I’ll just never look at couscous the same. Sorry if I ruined couscous for you as well.
