Many of you have wondered how we are managing are son’s diapering needs–a legitimate question. First, we stick a sanitary napkin to a size 1 diaper and then jam it in along the edges of the cut-out in his cast. Then we cover the entire thing with a size 4 or 5 diaper. Ideally, we would do this every 2 hrs. around-the-clock to prevent the forbidden leakage. Don’t get me started on how many wipes it takes to change a poopy diaper in this situation. Yes, we are single-handedly supporting the Huggies diaper industry. Endorsement deal forthcoming. However, we have been incredibly blessed by the generosity of a couple friends who have shared diapers, pads and wipes. The exceptional generosity of my friend, T.S., will surely cover us for the duration of sanitary napkin needs (see photo)–thank you!! I never thought I would be concerned with providing sanitary napkins for my son. In fact, this photo was largely taken to embarrass him in the future–yes, he will hate me years down the road when he learns that I shared his peculiar predicament with the blogosphere. In any case, true story: I was packing us up for our follow-up appt. at Dupont yesterday (it went well and one week down, praise God!) when I started getting those pre-period cramps you ladies are all-too-familiar with. I thought, “should I pack some pads?” Then I thought, “No, I CAN JUST BORROW SOME FROM MY SON IF NEED BE” Seriously?!?! You can’t make this stuff up…how many moms have ever had such a thought running through their minds?!
