Timing (in regards to diaper changing)

Ideally, one would like to change a diaper after a transaction has occurred.

Occasionally, a subsequent transaction occurs immediately after the application of the fresh diaper.

A rarer incidence is a transaction occurring at the same time as the changing of the diaper.

It is at a time very much like this when one wishes they somewhat resembled the Hindu god Kali, (the wife of Shiva).

I guess I should have heeded the warning signs: a slight reddening of the face, crossing of the eyes, a few low grunts/growls.

It was at this moment that time slowed down. I knew what was about to happen, but felt like I was but a spectator. The transaction started to…well, transact I guess.

I remember thinking, “Wow, how much longer can this go on?”. Amusingly, with my technical background (I’m sure Old School has an opinion on that…) I quickly ran some ratios through my head…estimated length of “transaction” compared to length of subject’s leg…apply ratio to the average length of an adult leg…carry the 2….divide by Π…OH MY GOD!

Luckily the Haz-Mat team was quick to respond (Mom) and we had the situation well under control.

Hopefully, next time we will be better prepared.
