5. At 3 a.m., your kids’ diapers all look the same.


I hope I’m not the only one who has done this.

About the Author ()

I am a lifelong (award-winning!) cartoonist and mother of two delightful boys, aged 7 and 5. I like to view today's adventures in parenting as material for tomorrow's cartoon. Looking at family life through "cartoon-coloured glasses" helps me keep the all-important sense of humour required for raising kids... even for the events that don't seem so funny at the time.

  1. When our 2nd was a couple of months old, I walked into the living room to find my oldest (he was about 1.5) wearing a very tight diaper..turns out hubby had put a size 1 diaper on a size 3 bum 😛

  2. Ha! That’s quite the mental image. I guess your son didn’t mind! I am reassured to know it wasn’t just me.

    Loving this series – it’s perfect timing for me as we’re 3 weeks into our own adventure! A size 5 bum is very large after you have changed the size 1 bum all day!

    my two (7 mo and just 2) now wear the same size diapers, which works out pretty well. the toddler is about 5 lb heavier than his younger brother… (size 4). Ive really been enjoying this series, really speaks to me 🙂

    I loved the cartoon, you’re very talented 🙂 I never actually did that, probably because I was using cloth diapers and the old kind where one size fits all sort of thing.

    Guess a bigger diaper is better than a smaller one….until it falls off! LOL
