They had pizza delivered many times and the delivery girl knew to come up the back stairs. She knocked on the door.
Kim was back sitting on the couch watching Jody colour. When she heard the knock on the door, she quickly stood and went to Jody. “Pizza is here.”
Jody set her black marker down and got to her knees. Kim bent down and picked her up, setting her on her hip. “You’re doing a great job honey.” she said, before walking out to the kitchen.
Jody looked down at all the work she had done. She didn’t have to much more to go and she would be finished. She let Kim pick her up and when her diapered bum rested on Kim’s hip, Jody felt the wet diaper push up against her bottom.
Susan was paying the young delivery girl when Kim walked into the kitchen with Jody on her hip. The delivery girl looked up. She was not expecting to see a little girl. “Ohh.Hello.” she said.
Kim walked right up to her. When Jody saw the young girl, she became very aware of the diaper around her waist. “Hello. Here let me take the pizza.” Kim said, extending her arm.
The young girl handed the pizza to Kim. She had babysat many times and had never seen a diaper like the one that Jody was wearing. It was not Pampers or Huggies that was for sure. Kim took the pizza and placed it on the kitchen counter. Then took Jody to her chair. Jody had buried her head into Kim’s shoulder after seeing the young girl. She let Kim place her in the chair. Jody kept her head down, looking at the animals on her diaper.
Susan paid and the young girl went to walk out. Just before she got to the the first step, she turned back around. Susan was holding the door and was about to close it, when the delivery girl said, “If you happen to need a babysitter, I would be available.”
Susan stepped a little closer. “You babysit?”
“Yes. When I’m not delivering pizza. I’m trying to save money for college next year.”
Susan thought for a few seconds. “We may need one in the future. Could I get your name and number?”
Susan stepped back and held the door open. The young girl came back in. Susan went and grabbed a pen and pad of paper. She handed it to her. The young girl wrote out her name and phone number. She handed it back to Susan.
“Mary Monroe.” Susan read off the pad. “Thank you Mary. I’m not sure how soon it will be, but I will give you a call.”
“Okay, thanks.” Mary said, turning and walking down the stairs.
Susan closed the door and set the pad and pen back on the counter. She walked over to the kitchen table. “How is your project coming Jody?”
Jody slowing looked up. The delivery girl was gone. Thank god. “Uhmm. Good. I’m almost finished.”
“That’s great. You sure are a hard worker! You can finish it, after supper.” Susan said, as she ruffled Jody’s hair.
Jody smiled at that. She had worked hard. Maybe this was just a little test that Dr. Wells was giving her. Maybe, she just wanted to see how she worked. That made sense. She was going to be working for Dr. Wells, starting tomorrow. “Thanks.” she said, proudly.
Susan sat down and Kim brought the pizza and garlic bread over, sitting it in the middle of the table. Kim opened both boxes. She took out a piece of garlic bread and placed it on Jody’s plate. Jody picked up the bread and was just about to take a bite. Something happened and Jody became worried and her hand shock a little. She looked down at her t-shirt. She was afraid of spilling something on it. She set the bread back down. She looked at Kim. She didn’t know what to say, so she just pointed at her t-shirt.
“Ohhh. I’m sorry honey. I forgot.” Kim went and grabbed the pink bib. She returned and tied it around Jody’s neck. “Scared you might spill? Thank you for reminding me.”
Once the bib covered Jody’s shirt, she relaxed. “Yes.” The fear of spilling seemed to disappear. She picked up her bread and took a bite. Jody on her knees, resting her diapered bum on her heels enjoyed the garlic bread. Taking a drink of water, after finishing her bread, making sure to use both hands to pick up the plastic cup, her bladder released. Jody set her cup down and looked down at her diaper. No thought of using the potty entered her mind this time. She looked up at Kim, then Dr. Wells. Should she say something about being wet? Maybe, but how? Should she just come out and say it? As she was having this argument with herself, Kim placed a piece of pizza on her plate. It was not like her diaper was uncomfortable, so was there really any reason to bring attention to the fact she was wet? Maybe, after she was done eating, she would say something. She picked up her pizza and continued to eat.
Susan thought about the study she had read. She could tell that Jody become scared to eat without her bib. She could tell by her actions. Susan wondered if she was giving Jody too much medication. Jody had wet her diaper earlier and had not said a word about it. She would love to find out, how Jody’s thought process was working. It seemed that the fear of the potty or spilling was over taking over. Was she just doing what ever she could to stop the fears from entering her mind? Susan figured she should start writing down her observations. It might come in handy later on.
Kim noticed Jody looking down at her diaper when she placed the pizza on her plate. She smiled, knowing a diaper change would be coming soon and she could hardly wait.
Jody ended up eating three pieces of pizza and another piece of garlic bread. She had drank two cups of water and was feeling very full.
“Would you like ice cream for dessert?” Susan asked.
Jody placed her hand on her belly. “I’m full. I don’t think I could eat anymore.”
Susan smiled as Jody rubbed her belly. She looked so cute wearing her Dora bib and diaper. “After then. You want to go back to your project?”
“Yes.” Jody said, really wanting to get back to finishing up her work.
“Okay.” Susan stood and walked behind Jody. She untied her bib, placing it on the table. She took Jody’s hand and helped her off her chair. Once Jody was standing on the floor, Susan did not need to check her diaper, as she could see that it was very wet now. “Let’s wash your face and hands before you go back to your project. We wouldn’t want it to get ruined.”
Jody let Dr. Wells led her to the kitchen sink. Susan wet a cloth and cleaned Jody’s face and hands. “Okay. We will be out there shortly. Have fun.”
Jody waddled towards the family room. Her wet diaper moved back and forth more then before. She stopped after a few steps. She turned and was going to say something about her wet diaper, but she couldn’t find the words. She became nervous and quickly put her head down. She turned back around and waddled quickly towards the family room.
Kim and Susan watched as Jody waddled away. Her diaper noticeably wet. They looked at each other. Susan waited for Jody to get into the family room before saying, “I think our little girl needs a diaper change.”
“Should I go change her?”
“She is going to need a bath after that poppy pull-up earlier. Let her finish colouring.”
“She is going to be upset about going into the bathroom and seeing the potty.”
Susan giggled, “Okay, I will tell you why I got her to colour on that box. I figured if we put that up around the potty, then she would have no problem going in for a bath.”
Kim looked stunned. “Oh my god! What a great idea Susan!”
“I thought so.” Susan said, still giggling a little. “Every once in a while, I believe it might get moved, just to remind her of the big scary potty.”
“That’s such a good idea. When did you come up with that?” Kim asked.
“I just thought about it when you went to wake her up from her nap.”
“Well, you’re brilliant.” Kim said, moving towards Susan and giving her a big hug and kiss. “I think I will go back out and watch over our little girl.” Kim turned and walked towards the family room.
Jody was colouring away when Kim returned to the couch. Jody never heard Kim come in. She was too busy working on her project, trying to get in finished. After all that has happened, she at the least could show Dr. Wells, she was a good worker.
Susan cleaned up the kitchen and went back out with Kim. It was not long after that that Jody pushed herself to her knees and looked over her picture. The red farm house and red barn looked good. The many cows in the green field might be a little oversized, but Jody thought it looked great. After looking it over one last time she turned around and with excitement in her voice she said, “I’m finished.”
Kim and Susan stood and walked over. They both looked down at the picture. It wasn’t to bad. Not sure if anyone would ever thing a adult had done it, but that was okay. After the delivery girl asked if they needed a babysitter, they were not to worried about anyone thinking Jody was a adult anyway.
Susan was the first to speak. “That is really, really good Jody.”
“It is really good.” Kim added.
Jody was happy. She grinned and felt very proud. “Thank you. It was fun.”
Susan knelt down and picked Jody up onto her feet. Her diaper sagged. “You stay here with Kim and wait for me to call you, Okay.”
Susan picked up the big box and took it away. Jody watched closely as Dr. Wells and her picture disappeared, wondering what was going on. Jody looked up at Kim. Kim knew where Susan was going and figured this was a good time to see how Jody would react to a diaper check. Kim bent down and placed her hand on the front of Jody’s diaper.
“I think you need a diaper change sweetie.”
Jody lowered her head and said nothing.
“That’s okay sweetie. It’s much better then using that big scary potty, isn’t?
Jody nodded her head slowly. It was hard to admit, but some how, some where in her thoughts, it was much better.
“I know. You just let Dr. Wells or myself look after your diaper. You have been such a good girl all day. You never once, asked for anything. We like that.”
Jody was a little worried Kim might be upset. After all she was wearing a very wet diaper. Jody lifted her head up. “I…didn’t know what to say.”
Kim brought Jody in for a hug. She patted her diapered bum. “That’s okay honey. Don’t you worry about it.” Kim let go of Jody then stood. She recached over Jody and pulled the back of her diaper out. “You’re not stinky are you?”
Quickly, Jody said, “Noooo.”
Kim placed her hands on Jody’s shoulders and looked her in the eyes. “But it would be okay if you were. Right?” I just needed to check. Is that okay?”
Jody closed her eyes, not wanting to look at Kim. “I guess.”
“Would you rather use the big scary potty or have me or Dr. Wells look after your diaper?”
It was no contest for Jody. She had hardly thought about that stupid scary potty all afternoon. Now thinking about it made her upset. She wanted to say something more but all she said was, “Diaper.”
“That’s a good girl. The diapers are soft and comfortable aren’t they?
Jody did think at the moment that they were soft or comfortable, but a new one would be better. “There okay.”
Susan came back into the family room. “Okay. Everything is ready.”
Kim took Jody’s hand and they followed Susan. Susan stopped in front of the bathroom door. “Close your eye’s Jody.”
Jody got a little nervous and moved right beside Kim. She didn’t want to have anything to do with the bathroom.
“It’s going to be okay Jody. I promise.” Susan said, holding her hand on the bathroom door knob.
Jody closed her eyes, but not so tight that she could not see. She felt Kim place her hand on her back. Susan opened the bathroom door and Kim gave Jody a little push towards it. Jody’s eyes closed tight at this point.
“Okay sweetie. You can open your eyes.”
Jody opened only one eye and when she saw her picture she quickly opened the other.
“Isn’t this great Jody. You covered up, that big, scary potty with your excellent picture.” Susan said.
Jody took a step closer. Her picture went from the far wall and bent around. It blocked the potty completely. Jody was so excited she could no longer see the big, scary potty that she jumped up and yelled, “Thank you.” She tuned and gave Susan a big hug. Susan picked up Jody and placed her on her hip.
“I told you, you would like it.” Susan said, giving Jody a few bounces on her hip.
“I do. I really do.” Jody screamed out.
Kim made her way past Susan and Jody. She plugged the tub and turned the water on. Kim added some bubble bath. “How about a nice bath?”
“I think that is a good idea. Don’t you Jody?”
Jody was so excited she could no longer she the potty, she would have agreed to anything. “Okay.”
Susan stood Jody on the floor. Jody toddled over to Kim, not taking her eyes off her picture.
Kim took Jody’s t-shirt from the bottom and pulled it up over her head. She let Jody stand there in nothing but her sagging diaper. Jody was still looking at her picture, so happy that she no longer could see the big, scary potty. Kim let her stand there, waiting for the tub to fill. Kim finally bent down and turned Jody so that she was facing her. She pulled the top two tapes, then the bottom two. She then pulled the very wet diaper out from between Jody’s legs and rolled it up. She picked Jody up and lifted her over the side of the tub. Jody stood in the tub getting a look look at her picture. “Sit on your bum, sweetie.” Kim said.
Jody slowly sat down in the water. Bubbles came up to her neck. The water felt great and Jody never stopped smiling, looking at her picture.
“You really like your picture?” Kim asked like she was taking to a three year old, as she washed Jody’s back.
Jody paid no attention to the fact that Kim was bathing her or talking to her like she was a little child. “Yes I do.”
“How many cows did you draw baby?”
Jody started to count the cows. “Six.” she said like it was the best thing ever.
“Wow. Six. That’s great. How many horses did you draw?”
Jody counted the horses. “Four.”
Kim kept using the wash clothe on Jody and asking questions that would be more suit if Jody was starting daycare in the morning. “So how many is that total?”
“Wow. Ten. You’re so smart.”
“I saw that farm house on my way here on the bus.” Jody stated.
Kim took Jody by the arm and lifted her up. She placed the wash cloth between Jody’s legs. “You did. You’re so glad you came, aren’t you baby.”
Jody had to think about that question. She had mixed feelings. She was excited to start a new job, but somethings were just not right. She finally took her eyes off of the picture and looked down at Kim’s hand that was between her legs. “I can do that.” she said, recaching for the wash cloth.
Kim stopped washing Jody as they both held onto the cloth. “You can do what baby?”
“I….I can take a bath by myself.”
“Ohh. I’m sure you can, but I thought you wanted to look at your picture, so I was just helping you.”
“I do, but…..” Jody’s emotions were all over. Upset she was being bathed. Excited about her picture and what it was covering. “….I’m a adult.”
Kim let go of the wash cloth, letting Jody take it. She made the sadist face she could muster. “I’m sorry Jody. I didn’t mean to upset you. I’m so sorry.” Kim tried to make some tears, but she couldn’t.
Jody could tell right away that Kim was upset. She wasn’t intending to upset her. Jody was just trying to say, she wasn’t some little kid. Jody now felt bad. “I’m sorry Kim. I didn’t mean to upset you.”
Kim keeping up the act. “It’s okay. Even though I changed your poppy pants and don’t tell Dr. Wells that you peed in the bed.” She stopped and got up from her knees. “I will leave.”
Hearing Kim say those things made Jody feel, less adult. She had done those things. Things a child would do. Jody brought the wash cloth up to her face and started to cry. No wonder Kim thought she should have to give her a bath. It’s not Kim’s fault. It’s hers. Before Kim got to the doorway, Jody yelled, “It’s okay. Come back.”
Kim held back her smile and turned around. “Are you sure? I don’t want you to be mad at me.”
“I’m not. I’m not mad at you. I’m sorry, its just…..” Jody was stuck for words. She wiped her face with the cloth and held it up.
Kim knelt back down and took the cloth. She set in on the side of the tub. Kim place one hand on the front of Jody and the other on her back. “Let’s wash that pretty hair.” She pushed Jody forward and then leaned her back. Keeping her hand on Jody’s back, she dunked Jody’s hair in the water. Sitting her back up, Kim took the Johnston’s baby shampoo and squeezed a good amount on her hair. Kim lathered up Jody’s hair with the shampoo. Repeating the process, Kim rinsed the shampoo out of Jody’s hair.
Jody let Kim do what ever she wanted. She was trying to think of ways to convey to Kim that she was not a child, without making her upset. The more she thought about it, the more confused she became. How could she say she wasn’t a child after what she has done.
“All done sweetie.” Kim said, as she pushed the plug in the tub. ” Kim picked Jody up, lifting her over the side of the tub. Jody stood on the bath mat, letting Kim use a big fluffy towel to dry her off. It wasn’t long and Kim wrapped the towel around her. Kim picked her up. “You don’t want to try and use the potty, do you?”
Jody buried her head into Kim shoulder. “Noooo.”
“Okay. Let’s go get you ready for bed then. Maybe get some ice cream after.” Kim said, with a smile.
Jody kept her head up against Kim shoulder as Kim walked out of the bathroom and into her bedroom. Kim took Jody to the change table and laid her down. She went to the closest and took out a diaper and a bottle of baby powder. Jody laid on the table wrapped in the towel. She picked her head up, so that she could she what Kim was doing. When she saw the diaper in Kim’s hand she let her head back down and closed her eyes.
