Oh dear...the odor.

The Halls have been over indulging in the wonderful fresh fruits and vegetables that summer time bring to our tables. My kids have been chowing down on peaches, berries, tomatoes, green beans and especially CORN ON THE COB. Yummy! However there is a downside to all that healthy good food. The downside is usually found in Madison's diaper. It starts first thing in the morning when I go to get her up. I stand outside her door and take a few deep breaths because I know what will greet my nose when I open her door. Sure enough an odor strong enough to drive terrorists out of their fox holes hits me as soon as I enter the room. Ugh!!! There's Maddie standing in her crib grinning from ear to ear. From the minute that door opens it is almost an Olympic event to get her up, changed, and the diaper out the back door before the smell takes over the house. Then it's back to her room to open her window so her room can air out before nap time. Of course I won't even go into the contents of the diaper but I will say Kendall commented once that it looked like Maddie's diaper had been sprinkled with the hamster's food. I think we might have to lay off the extra helpings of fruits and veggies for a little while or I'm going to need to invest in a ventilation system for the nursery.
