Wrestling Alligators

     You must be thinking, "What in the world is she talking about?!?!"  But, it's true, I wrestle a tiny, adorable, 19 lb. alligator numerous times a day!  Or at least, that is what it seems like.  Ever since Gwen has become "mobile," I can't get her to sit still!  She just wants to be "on the go" 24/7... and it is EXHAUSTING!  It has made changing diapers, clothes, putting on shoes, clipping nails, sometimes even feeding, a RODEO!  It IS, however, improving my speed and technique :)  Sadly, using the changing table (I was really holding on to that, but only for poopie diapers) is no longer an option.  She is so quick that sometimes I just say, "whatever" and let her play for a few minutes without a diaper (I know, I am really pressing my luck, but if it gets some energy out, then so be it!).  Let's just say, I am thankful that she doesn't bite too!
She's so lucky she is cute! :)
  At least, I get a workout out of it, right?!?!

HAHA!!! Oh my - this is SO funny - I was just telling a co-worker this morning that has a 4 month old how hard it is to change diapers on what seems like a whale out of water - than I saw your post and I like your analogy better - SO TRUE!!! These kids are WILD:) That picture of her is SSSOOO cute:)
