I woke up this morning and saw two disposable diapers lying in the baby’s room. Surprised, I wondered why hubby hadn’t put them away in the nappy bag. A few minutes later, the stench that emanated from the bag almost knocked me out. LO (Little One) only does a big poo once every week. Nothing to get alarmed about apparently as some babies do this.
Anyway back to why my hubby dreads putting away dirty diapers in the garbage bag after LO has done a big poo – the smell and the look! He escapes cleaning LO each time on some excuse or another. Although my hubby is fantastic at fixing stuff around the house and coming up with great ideas on any topic in this world, things which he cannot tolerate are; loud noises and now pooey nappies! Yesterday, when he opened the garbage bag,he almost keeled over with the smell and went round the house making all sorts of disgusted noises.
Therefore, I’m now resigned to the fact that pooey nappies are my destiny until LO is able to clean himself. Any other fathers out there who also faint at the smell of poo?
Immunisation – just the word is enough to send chills running down my spine!
Since hubby is at work, this dreadful task has fallen on my shoulders during the last 2,4 and now at 6 months. I wake up on the day dreading those awful words – please hold his legs down tightly! To be perfectly honest, I am a perfect wuss when it comes to having jabs, I cannot look at the needle going into baby’s legs. I don’t even look at the needle when it’s going into my own veins. I’m usually shivering slightly with my eyes tightly closed, muttering prayers underneath my breath much to the amusement of the person taking my blood.
So you can guess how much I dreaded blood tests during pregnancy. Here I fully supported my hubby’s phobia of not letting any Doctor take even a ml of blood from your body if not necessary. Luckily, I only had to endure one blood test to confirm the pregnancy.
It seems I’m not the only one who dreads immunisations; my friends had this to say:
My husband takes the kids to the clinic, even after 3 kids I’m still scared
I think this is a good task to delegate to Dads
One of my personal fears when taking my little one to the clinic, is that he will accidentally get an injection not meant for him. So there I am watching the nurse like a hawk while she’s going back and forth between different patients and practically breathing down her neck as she enters the details in his blue book .
6 month immunisation coming up – wonder if I can rope hubby into taking the little one to the clinic this time?….
