My 2-year-old did not want her diaper changed, but it was necessary!
She forcefully resisted me as I tried to lie her down on her changing pad. Then I caught a glance of myself in the mirror and noticed I had a smudge on my face.
With a twinkle in my eye I said, “Oh, no! I have a smudge on my face and I don’t want anyone to wipe it off!” I gave her the wipe that was in my hand and as I bent over her to change her diaper, she dabbed the wipe at my face.
I cringed and said in a high-pitched voice, “Yuck! I don’t like that! It’s too cold! Ewww!” She laughed and laughed and had no problem with me changing her diaper. She just wanted to keep on playing the game!
