Even though I’m a relatively new Dad, I was aware that babies existed…even before I had one. This was mainly due to films and TV.
I’ve now been a Dad for 2 whole months and feel qualified to say that everything on TV and in films is a naughty NAUGHTY lie.
This is the first in a series, delving into the expectations and realities of parenting.
First up…changing a nappy.
Oh. Before we get into it, this post contains the most horrific GIF you will ever see. Be warned.
Changing a Nappy – Expectation
You take off the nappy, use a single wipe to slightly caress your babies anus then pop on a new nappy. There is a teeny speck of poo on the wipe. During the change, your baby is contentedly gurgling away to themselves.
Changing a Nappy – Reality
OH GOD! WHY IS THERE A VAT OF CHICKEN TIKKA MASALA IN YOUR NAPPY??
There aren’t enough wipes in the world to contend with this aberration.
