Today's Forecast: Humid and Wet

When you have a newborn, everything in your environment becomes mysteriously DAMP.

There's a wet stain on the blanket.  There's a small puddle on the floor.   Nobody knows why the baby's left sock is wet.  Dad's t-shirt suddenly becomes cold.

This leaks, that runs, another thing spills, something else dribbles.

It's a combination of accidental milk drops, accidental pee, accidental spit-up, and accidental runny poop. 

It's splashed bath water, smeared Vaseline, spilled rubbing alcohol, and vitamin D liquid that is leaking from the syringe.

Life here in the Goddard Household is...humid.

And I wouldn't trade it for the world.
