John Sheppard's How to Change a Diaper 101


"Are you ready John?" asked Teyla.

"I think I am," Sheppard replied.

"Then let's get on with the lesson," Teyla said with a smile on her face.

"So what do I do now?" he asked.

"Pull this flap up like that, and you just throw the old diaper away."

"OK! I think I can do this."

"And your going to have to," she said.

"You just go have a good time on the mainland and have a good time doing whatever your doing, and just leave me here with little Toran."

"Are you sure you're going to be alright?"

"Of course we will; and if I need any help then I will call Rodney, we'll be just fine. Right Toran?" and at that very moment when Teyla left the room Toran spit up right in Sheppard's face.

"Rodney! Towel, burp-cloth; now! That's not quick enough Rodney!" John said.

"Here you go!" said Rodney he was hurrying (apparently not fast enough).

"That's not big enough Rodney! Here take the kid and wipe all the spit-up off his face, and the sleeve! And his face, your not doing it right! " he shouted.

"I am sorry! I don't know how to do it!"

"How can you not know how to wipe a face? Just give him to me!" and at this time Toran was crying.

"Stop crying!" And then Sheppard heard a ominous sound escape from the baby's rear.

"I thought Teyla just changed him." said Rodney nervously.

"She did... Let's just leave it."

"Can we do that?"

"Well just once and we don't have to tell Teyla..."

"What don't we have to tell Teyla?" asked Ronon.

"Nothing. You can go we 're fine right here." said Sheppard.

"Whaaaaaa!!" Toran cried.

"Just give him to me," said Ronon.

"Yeah you should probably take him," Sheppard said, passing Toran to Ronon. Thirty minutes later Toran was peacefully asleep in Ronon's arms.

"I cant believe he's asleep!" said Rodney.

"I'm back," said Teyla.

"Ronon wanted to hold Toran so I let him," said Sheppard.

"Did he cry at all?" asked Teyla.

"Why would he be crying?" said Sheppard.

"Because I heard something while I was on the Mainland," Teyla said with a smile.

"Well I have to go read some War & Peace; I am behind in my reading schedule," said Sheppard.

"And I have to go eat some blue jello!" said Rodney; and after Rodney and Sheppard left the room Teyla asked Ronon a question.

"Ronon, what happend while I was gone?" she asked.

"Toran was crying, I fixed it," he answered.

"Yes, you did," and she smiled.
