DIAPERING IS LIKE BASEBALL


Communication is necessary for all mothers. A young couple had just had a newborn baby, and the time came when the baby needed a change, and the mother was not able to change the baby so she asked her husband, who was a minor league ball player if she would change the baby. He told her he did not know how. A couple of hours later a situation arose, again she asked if her husband would change the baby. Again, he told her – All I know is baseball, I cannot change the baby. The young mother thought – How can I communicate this in a way that he will understand?



Sure enough, it was time to change the baby again. She made the request he gave the same reply. However, this time she had the answer.


CHANGING A BABY IS MUCH LIKE BASEBALL; YOU LAY THE DIAPER OUT LIKE A DIAMOND, PLACE THE BABY ON IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DIAPER. THIS IS THE PITCHER’S MOUND, YOU TAKE FIRST BASE PULL IT OVER TO THIRD BASE, YOU PIN THAT TOGETHER. YOU TAKE SECOND BASE AND SLIDE THAT INTO HOME PLATE AND THE BABY IS CHANGED. IN CASE OF RAIN – THE GAME IS NOT CALLED YOU SIMPLY START ALL OVER AGAIN.


This mother knew how to communicate to meet her child’s needs.
