You’re lying on the change table. You only realized your diaper was wet when daddy came and gave you a check. As you lie on the change table, you sense the squishiness of the diaper beneath you and have a flutter in your tummy as you realize how soaked you are and that daddy is there to change you.
As you hear the snaps of your onesie come undone, a little wave of feeling overcomes you. It’s a warm feeling. Daddy is taking care of you.
The scent of your wet diapers reaches you as Daddy untapes them and then, without thinking, you move your hand towards your mouth and place your thumb inside.
What Daddy’s Thinking
As daddy changes you he’s focused on getting you out of your wet diaper. He’s noticing how soaked you are and is thinking that he should probably check you more often but that boys will be boys and soaked diapers are to be expected.
He’s thinking that the diapers he chose for you seem to do the trick – their cute pattern and thickness both suit his little boy and give him the protection he needs.
He’s wondering what type of diaper to put you in – whether a cute babyish pattern is suitable, and whether he should put you in a thicker diaper or not.
As he sees you slip your thumb in your mouth, daddy feels a special warmth in his heart. Seeing his little boy very naturally slide his thumb into his mouth is an incredibly special feeling for daddy.
It tells him that you feel a sense of trust and safety in his care. It shows him that you’re truly a baby boy who appreciates and responds to being daddy’s special little boy, and it shows that more and more, the feelings of being a baby are coming naturally.
As daddy realizes that you are expressing the special feelings you have inside and sees that you are able to be who you are — to suck your thumb, to wear your diapers happily, to be the little boy you’ve always been inside.
So the next time that side of you instinctively leads you to suck your thumb, don’t resist – let those feelings come naturally, because they’re a very special expression of trust to your daddy.
