A Great Deed… With Motive

On Thursday evening I babysat young Gwyn (1 1/2 years old) and Penn (4 years old).  I got to change my first poopy diaper, which turned out not to be an ordeal at all.  I suppose the steady exposure to various animal accidents had to pay off sometime.  The only bump in the road came when little Gwyn needed to go to bed.  She was a bit unhappy with the notion and a lot of crying was to be had.

"I know!" Penn said and disappeared to his room.  He emerged carrying one of his precious teddy bears– the ones he never shares.  It was a very big move for the boy.

I couldn't help but be touched by Penn's generosity.  As he reached over crib and put it  into his sister's suddenly calm and content arms, Penn looked at me and said:

"It has pee pee on it, but Gwynie won't care."

Suddenly his philanthropy made sense.

    You haven’t changed a poopy diaper before now? I find that hard to believe. Even I’ve changed plenty of poopy diapers in my lifetime.

    I’m pretty sure that was my first. I didn’t recall ever doing it before and I asked Mom and she didn’t think I did it ever before either. I don’t think we ever changed Jesse and Rachel when we babysat.
