Brown Gold

Since today's Photo Friday theme is rainbows (oopsy, did I forget to mention that?), here is a picture that I took some years ago. I like it not only because it has two rainbows (that's right two!), but because it looks like one of the rainbows divides the sky into two sections. One side is dark and ominous and the other side is bright and sunshiny...interesting.

Anyway, you know they say that you can find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? Well, let's just say that Christian found some "gold" inside his diaper this week. Yes, my darling son has discovered his family jewels (and I don't mean the shiny kind) and always reaches down to cop a feel when we change his diaper. Fortunately and unfortunately, he only does this when he feels that they are smeared with something...yes, you know where this is headed. Well, yesterday the new nanny was changing his poopy diaper, and my mom hadn't warned her about his tendency to grab his nards. The lady proceeded to change his poopy diaper and as she reached over for the wipes, she failed to notice that Christian's hand reached right into his diaper. Yum. Wait, it gets better, then he rubbed his face. The nanny was freaking out cause she couldn't call my mom to help her because she was out in the backyard and she couldn't leave the baby unattended because he would fall off the couch. She quickly propped some pillows around him and ran to the sink to get some wet paper towels to wipe him off. Wow, what an initiation! hee hee. I'm amazed that she did it alone because that's a two man job. One to clean and hold his hands and another to clean his butt! Ah fun times.

Anyway, speaking of nannies, we were supposed to try out different nannies this week, but since my mom liked the first one that came, that theory went out the window. Let's see how long this one lasts. Her hubby makes good money so she doesn't really HAVE to work, so I would imagine that if any little thing pisses her off, she'll leave. The good thing about her though is that she has all the daycare/childcare certifications, so she is more knowledgeable than the average bear about children and their developmental stages and such. She seems nice. Cross your fingers!

Hey I was reading about the jumperoo, how does he like it, I am considering buying one for Ava, (of course not just yet) but would like to know someone who has used one.
