Any Port in a Storm

The Boy is really fun to hang out with now. He's become quite interactive and loves to play with us. He particularly likes getting a Raspberry on his belly. He cackles, giggles and sports a big shit-eatin' grin. One of the best times to surprise him with a Raspberry attack is on the change table, where is belly is exposed and just asking for it. Yesterday P took it too far.

She was changing him on the change table. The Boy was having a blast; flapping his arms, snickering and writhing in delight - perfect time for a Raspberry attack. But he was holding his legs up, so what was a mother to do? Undaunted, P did the only thing she could and gave him a Raspberry on his ass cheek, his left cheek to be exact.

The Boy didn't care, he starting laughing harder. On the other hand I was appalled, but maybe deep down I was just jealous.
