the thumb test

we were all sitting around the table, just finishing our dinner. Zander had pulled his chair around the table to sit beside his daddy.

hubby: ooh, Zander…you stink! did you poop?

Zander: hmmm. not sure. a better check! [reaching his arm behind him] nope! no poop!

hubby: [laughing his ass off] he just shoved his thumb down the back of his diaper!

damn! all this time i’ve just been peeking down the back of the boys’ diapers, when i could have been doing the evermore accurate thumb test.  of course, the peek-method doesn’t require a good thumb scrubbing afterward.

    LOL! Too cute :) So true,..unless the diaper is one of those that has poo that creeps all the way up the back….ewwww! The peeking method may be superior in that case 😉

    My husband used to do the finger test until once (it may have been twice) when he learned the hard way that the peek method was definitely a better test!

    I think there’s a reason that we don’t use our thumbs. Scary shit can come out!

    Oh goodness, that is funny! I remember when one of my cousins was young and my grandmother wanted to see if she was wet. She stuck her thumb in and it came out green. Eww. She swore never to do that again. 😉
