20 Pounds of Diaper

In Pensacola, there is a wonderful fountain at the foot of Palofox, at the turnaround, and it is the perfect place for a toddler on a steamy day. They have all kinds of spurts of water coming up. The water changes height and force, so it is full of surprises for the young ones.

Scandalous, I know, that we just let him wear the diaper, but they get SOAKING wet!

There are also big fat pigeons and swift little sparrows to chase, and even a big egret out coaching the fishermen and women, hoping for a handout.

At the end, as we were getting ready to go, we changed the diaper and it weighed about 20 pounds, all water.

  2. LLOOOLLL! Actually, I could have used a swimming diaper, Dutchie, I didn’t think of it. We used them when we did the Mother (Grandmother) – Tot classes at the Y. I suppose I also really should have put a swim suit on him, but we just wanted to keep life simple. Swim diaper! Why didn’t I think of that??

    I was just thinking about you this morning and wondering how you are doing?

  3. Funny! I always thought the weight designations on diapers related to the baby’s weight, not to the diaper’s capacity! LOL! Happy Baby obviously deserves his name and is a real cutie! I’m glad you are enjoying him so much!
