Diapers have been around since poop has been around, so forever. I did a little research of the disposible diaper...and found this:

So how is all of this relevant to my life? I have here 122 years of people who have dedicated their lives to research/discover ways to improve the diaper. I wonder how all these people would feel to know that thier efforts have been in vain when it comes to this little stinker's (literally) sweet little tushy! Poor Maria Allen would be devastated!
Kerrigan Rose can blow out of any diaper known to man...it doesn't matter if it is a super cheap no name brand diaper, or a super expensive pamper swaddler. To her, they are all the same. This is how we spend a majority of the day:
I am constantly changing her soiled clothes, and our bathroom sink is always full of said soiled clothes soaking in soapy water! I never know such a tiny being could produce so much waste. Please tell me it gets better when I introduce solids to her diet.
P.S. How angry will she be in 10 years when she reads this...I will probably never be nominated for Mother of the Year after this post! : )
