Being Dad/ IED’s
This blog is not only about working out, the TV show, my opinion on life but also being about a new father and husband. I have a lot of funny stories already about my baby girl, with that said I will share one.
In Afghanistan we are trained how to spot and handle IED’s (Improvised Explosive Devices). They are very dangerous and a favorite weapon of the insurgents to implement and use against coalition forces and cause devastating injuries. I did walk by an IED once but thankfully the rains a few days prior exposed it so nothing came of it. I was one of the fortunate ones that made it home 100% unscathed.
So I come home and I thought I had heard the last of IED’s. Well I have, the explosive bomb ones. I can now say that I have been hit by an IED compliments of my daughter. (I.E.D) in daddy terms is Infant Explosive Diarrhea <- that is now trademarked by the way. Yes, infant’s have explosive diarrhea and upon one of my first days having her home she got me. I have seen some nasty stuff being a corpsman but a butt explosion like that is not something you want coming your way.
A tip of advice for you new parents. Once you remove a diaper, have a new diaper or baby wipe covering their butt ready to deflect the explosive down into the old diaper or into a chux pad. This has worked so far, and since I have implemented this new strategy have only received minor shrapnel from these explosions. I hope this helps you avoid the wrath of the Infant Explosive Diarrhea and if you have a special technique you use please post comments because another method of avoiding these poop bombs would be greatly taken to heart.
