Minor Level Destruction


Wikipedia
Samuel stared through the bars of the playpen as he groaned at just another incarceration.  What had he done?  Just the usual stuff, but this time?  

First, he had coughed up a ball of green-yellow phlegm, and spit it on a really old carpet beyond the bars, one that had been in great-grandma's house.  Heh, heh, heh. Then, Samuel had been charged with screaming loudly, marking graffiti on public walls in a diaper medium, and randomly destroying stuff. Good times.

But last one? It was epic.  With just a plastic knife, Samuel had repeatedly stabbed the arm of the couch, tossing foam and stuffing wherever they fell.  It did not end well. 

It was a reach for him, Samuel realized.  "Keep it simple" he reminded himself. Next time.

Samuel then realized that his diaper was beyond damp, and had begun  dripping.  With strong lungs only a two year-old toddler possesses, Samuel cried and sobbed. Mommy, mommy!  Sometimes being one who is not-yet-potty-trained is a blessing.  

A lot is forgiven when a diaper is full. 

This a post from 2014, using words from Wednesday Words. As always, great fun was had by all.

  2. I miss your chronicles of Samuel - though I am grateful not to have a Samuel in my life.

  5. That was a crafty way to escape from the pen, but not a method that can be used by all recidivists.

  6. Samuel likes to amuse himself doesn't he?

  7. Samuel is going to be an interesting child as he grows older, I do hope he doesn't continue destroying furniture though.

  8. You certainly have a way with words. Descriptive, imaginative words. I can visualize this scenario, even though I've never changed a diaper in my life (nor do I ever intend to, either). I have enough poop in my life with two cats.

    1. Cats produce lots of poop for sure. Glad the images appear in your brain.

    1. Oh, what you missed! Diapers are a challenge at first.

      My older brother was born in January and I was born in December, 10 months apart. Lots of diapers.

  11. Potty training was a long time ago for my kid. I was sure glad when it was over though.
