So, I took my dishwashing gloves off, went into the bedroom, where she was tossing and turning on the bed next to Art. She’s almost 11 months old. I pulled off her pants and cloth diaper, then held her over a little potty I have by the side of the bed. She complained a little, semi-cry, like, ‘man, this really stinks, I’m so tired and I want to be sleeping, but damn it, I have to pee!’.

I wiped her off, plopped her back on the bed, put her dry diaper back on, laid down, gave her a few minutes of boobies, then pulled away.
