#20 & #21 occurred when C was changing Noah’s diapers.
C: Hey, how come the Desitin on his bum is gone?
C: There’s no Desitin on his bum! Where did it go?
Me: *stares at C in disbelief*
C: Oh, is it gone because he peed and it got washed away?
Me: *still speechless*
C: Orh-hor. You forgot to put Desitin just now, right?
Me: Wait, wait. Let me think of a sarcastic enough answer for you. *pause* Nope, sorry. I’m too tired to come up with something now.
C: Wah, his diaper is super full of pee.
Me: Yeah it’s usually very full in the morning. He’s been in it since last night you know.
C: I think it’s so full, it can’t absorb any more pee.
C: Really! His front was wet when I took his diaper off.
Me: That’s because he just peed, not because the diaper is too full.
C: Really? How do you know?
Me: *rolls eyes* I’m mummy. I know these things.
C was watching me change Noah’s diaper.
C: Wah, how did you get so fast at changing his diaper?
Me: You’re kidding, right? I change his diaper a lot more times than you do, you know. You want to do it instead? I think you need the practice.
C: No no, you go ahead. I’ll pass. You’re better at it anyway.
Me: That’s why you should do it! You must practise, then you’ll be good at it too.
C: No no, he wants you to do it. He told me.*
Me: No, he told me he wants YOU to change his diapers from now on.
C: No he didn’t. You heard wrongly.
