    Ha! What did Lacan say about the corps en morcelait (?) – the body in pieces? The boundaries take a good long time to get secure, but eventually they do. Pepito now wakes up at night with soaking wet diapers, and stares up at you with the most pathetic expression, moaning “Popo!” and beating limply at his diaper. Of course, it’s rarely popo, but the message gets across: I’m really uncomfortable!!!!

    Oh you poor thing!

    Missy lives in spit-up covered shirts and onesies. I used to change them all the time but now it has to be really nasty before I change her. Slacker mom.

    That’s quite a variety of bodily fluids!

    Oh, how I remember. I’d forget to change and before I knew it, the spit up would be dried and I’d just let it go.
