Boys stink

My baby stinks. I am beginning to be embarrassed to be near him in public. He has gas something awful. I'm talking really bad, really stinky. It lingers. He is only 7 months! I don't know what to do about it. He is eating regularly and everything else is still baby smelling, if you catch my drift, but this is just awful. We went to the science center on Sunday and kept smelling something. We knew someone had gas but kept blaming it on the other kids that were there. Then I noticed it was following us around, this bad odor. I checked his diaper and it was fine but he was just so smelly. Like a cat that passes gas and then goes to the other room where the air is fresher. I have never smelled something like that come out of such a sweet baby! I had to put him in another room for awhile before I passed out or started having hallucinations. I just don't want people to think it is me! I don't want to be blamed for his foulness!

Anyway, enough gross talk.

I have read the best book recently! The author is Ted Dekker and he is a Christian author who writes thriller novels. The book that I read is called Showdown. It is about a battle between good and evil, as are many of his novels. It is about a town called Paradise and evil walks down main street one day and turns their lives upside down. I am reading another of his novels now, called Skin. So far, it is really good. It is pretty creepy and I can't put it down. If you have never read one of his books, I would suggest picking it up. It is good to finally read a Christian novel that has some really good edgy writing in it. The only problem with his books are the same as I have with all good books, I read them too fast.

When I was growing up, one of the missionaries my church supported was the Dekkers in Papua New Guinea (or was it Irian Jaya - or are they the same thing?). Ted Dekker is there son - it seems so strange to me to hear about his books, as if worlds are colliding.
