So I changed my first nappy yesterday, yes Lisa has been very patient with me this first two weeks. I thought I’d seen some bad user interface decisions in computer software but that’s nothing compared to the design (“intelligent design”? huh!) of babies.
I got the dirty nappy off without too much of a bother and whilst there was a bit of crying and complaining (all from Jasmine up to this point) I managed to get her cleaned up nicely as well. It all went down hill from there though. She wee’d on the first new nappy before I could get it done up. Then she pooed on the next one (what sort of process turns breast milk into that foul green muck?). Then she wee’d on another one. All of this was accompanied by furious kicking of the legs making it almost impossible to do anything and a high pitched screaming and wailing which made it impossible to think. Clean nappy number four was successfully applied (these things are worse than a Microsoft service pack) and it was discovered that wee number one or two had soaked the singlet. So I had to remove three or four layers of clothes to change the wet singlet none of which was appreciated by our little angel. By the end of it all I’m not sure who was more distressed, Jasmine or me.
Lisa thought the whole thing was hilarious. But she’s been doing this for a couple of weeks now so she’s probably just a bit hysterical and not laughing at me at all.
Afterwoods I seriously considered installing Windows on my desktop just for a bit of light relief… nah just kidding still 100% Linux here nothing could be that bad :)
