The Exploding Onesie

Before I get to the main point of this entry, I think I need to define what a onesie is for my readers who may have never heard of such a thing. A onesie is quite simply the most wonderful piece of clothing a baby can ever wear. They come in several different styles and as many designs as t-shirts. In fact, it's essentially a t-shirt for babies. What's cool about them is that they have snaps for in between baby's legs so that mom, dad, grandparent, or babysitter (remember, no sitting on babies!!) can easily change baby's diaper.

Okay. Now we can really begin...

Aidan has a light blue onesie with yellow text on it reading, "For a good time, call 1-800-GRANDMA." It's clever and used to be quite cute on him. However, both times he's worn it—once to each grandmother's house—he has managed to soil it. For whatever reason, his poo becomes explosive when he wears this onesie. And I can't help but laugh...and then reach for a handful of wipes.

No other onesie has the record that this one does. I don't believe in hocus pocus or cursed items but this shirt-with-snaps is beginning to make me wonder. Is there someone somewhere with a needle and light blue thread laughing hysterically at me and Marissa? Is Aidan allergic to yellow monogramming? Or perhaps he's just so excited about a good time with Gram or Granna that he pushes just a bit harder than normal? I may have to call 1-800-GRANDPA to figure this one out before Aidan wears soils this onesie once again.
