By the storytellers of The Huntington
Once upon a time...
He’s at the pediatrician’s.
He’s in the doctor’s suitcase.
He’s being delivered.
He’s a very happy baby.
He’s also mischievous – you can tell by the glint in his eyes.
He forgot to get dressed – he’s got at least a diaper on.
Charlie – he’s 1 year old.
He’s looking at us – he’s thinking things to look forward to. He thinks we’re nuts.
He’s looking at the person who took the picture.
Hazel took the picture and thought “this baby is so cute, where’s the camera?”
The window curtains are behind him.
Charlie saw the bag and thought that it looked like fun and he climbed in.
He thinks it looks nice there.
He has a mommy and daddy – Mama, mother and father.
Charlie’s father’s a doctor – he better have a mother.
Mary and George.
Mary’s a nurse but she spends her day cleaning up the mess after Charlie.
He seems to be missing a finger on his hand.
Charlie doesn’t have any siblings yet, but, boy, they’re comin’!
Charlie likes to explore.
Whenever he wants something he cries.
He wants milk, a bottle, and a diaper change – poor baby!
He wet his pants!
Before this, he threw up, wet his pants.
They are looking at the mess he’s made, tryin’ to figure out how to take samples.
Next, they form a women’s army!
Charlie’s parents have to figure out which side of the army they’re on.
They want him outta the bag – they carry him in their arms (with a diaper, of course).
He better have a diaper on.
Mary and George bring Charlie back to the doctor’s office and Mommy takes him home.
He went to his piggy bank to see if he had enough money to buy him a shirt.
He lived happily ever after.
