It had been a long, rainy day of shopping. Little Mister needed a new bath chair (we had been using his new-born bath seat still, but as he was able to launch out of it by himself it had to go…), and we had been in and out of shops all day. Something easy for dinner loomed; something hot and chicken-y. So as we were sat in KFC, my baby boy lunged from my lap to make a snatch at my fries. I took it as a sign that he was ready to begin the long, messy process of weaning (even if I wasn’t ready…, naively I thought it would be a choice to wait until 6 months before we would start). Before this point we had tried a couple of tastes; baby rice and avocado. Both didn’t go down well, so it was with a little trepidation we started with real food.
Let’s face it, we’ve all had that moment where we’ve desperately panicked in the baby changing room, not knowing what to do with our poop covered little ones. Can I salvage the situation with baby wipes? Do I do a rush job and dash straight home? Is it an OK thing to hose down your baby in the KFC sink? Without a doubt, there are factors that increase the “Sod’s Law” chances of being faced with a code brown; read more below (and let us know your own guaranteed ways in the comments below).
They’ve always said that a picture speaks a thousand words. With the photos I’ve been taking since the arrival of Little Mister I could probably out-do a library. I’ve always dabbled in photography in my spare time, and often on outings out I’ll slowly peel away from a group because I’ve spotted a butterfly on a leaf, or because the way the light filters through the trees looks interesting.
