Diaper Rash+Guilty Mama=Fun Times at Chuck E. Cheese

This morning around 2 Holden started crying. I let him cry it out since he wasn't crying very hard. He settled back down after just a few minutes.

This morning when I went to check on him a horrible smell hit my nose. I'm pretty sure he had gone to the bathroom at 2 when he was crying. Lately he's been "pooping acid" eats through his skin so bad.

I had to send Daddy to the store because I was out of wipes. I knew it was going to be hard to change him because when I mentioned that Daddy had gone to get wipes so we could change his diaper, he went ballistic.

I hate when my baby is in pain. We had to hold him down. He was crying his eyes out. It broke my heart.

I lathered his little butt with lots and lots of diaper rash cream.

I felt horrible because I should of tended to him this morning at 2 when he woke up. He never poops in the middle of the night.. I thought he had just woken up for some other reason.

So to make him happy (and me) we went to Chuck E. Cheese. He has only been there one other time (for his 2nd birthday).

We had a lot of fun. We found out Holden is terrified of Chuck E. Cheese. He was cautiously weary of him at his 2nd birthday party. However today he screamed bloody murder when Chuck E. Cheese came near him.

His little butt is doing better. It's still somewhat chaffed, but I've been putting lots of ointment and baby powder on it. Poor Baby.:-(

oh my...motherhood is surely riddled with guilt isn't it. many hugs for you and Holden. We aren't perfect, and if he never poops at were you to know?
I am glad you ended up having a fun day though.

Oh, I hate when things like that happen! Happens to the best of us, mama - don't sweat it too much. Hope his little diaper area is on the mend.

D would be TERRIFIED of Chuck, too, I feel quite sure!!
