Diapergate - Jenny is not pleased with my latest Ebeneezer Scrooge imitation. When Russell wet his diaper slightly yesterday (but no poop in sight), I decided against changing his diaper completely. Instead, I popped in a clean, dry tissue between the diaper and his private parts, thinking that I might extend the brief, useful life of his current diaper by about an hour.

This money-saving behavior (diaper=$0.20, tissue=$0.005) got me in hot water when Jenny changed Russell’s diaper later that evening and found a soggy, wet tissue against his sensitive groin. An petty episode that might have escalated into an international incident was averted when I agreed never to pull this stunt again.
