Saralyn has revealed her silly baby trick: she can take her pants off while swaddled.
If you don’t know how to swaddle a baby, imagine making a blanket burrito with the baby as the meaty filling. The key to a good and useful swaddle is making sure the baby is tucked up in such a way at to keep the limbs from flapping around. The baby is warm, tight and secure.
So, color me so surprised to find that Saralyn can get her pants OFF while swaddled. I think it has to do with her bottom, or lack there of. She has a condition sometimes referred to as noassatall, and symptoms include sagging britches, and losing coins out of one’s pockets. Yep, a total lack of caboose.
It’s like when you want to go to bed in the sweatshirt you are wearing, but don’t want to undress and remove your bra and then redress. So you pull one arm in to your top, wiggle around, think a magic thought and the pull the bra out of the other sleeve. THAT’s simple enough to do and understand, but, Saralyn does it with her pants. And she’s 4 days old. Wow.
Her diapers, however, are still cooperating within the swaddles. Perhaps the diapers stay put, while the pant migrate, because Saralyn makes her own Gorilla Glue to keep ’em stuck solid.
Nevertheless, it’s now the running joke: Are her pants off or on? Unwrap and see.
