“I’m sure it’s just a phase”


IHF, a late twenties Mom, steps out of the baby’s room holding a diaper. She is looking for MOON, her 1 year old daughter.

IHF: (forced enthusiasm) Moon! Come on! It’s Diaper-Changing Time!

We hear the thuds of toddler footsteps through the house, followed by the slam of a door.

IHF: Moon?!

IHF steps further into the house, and the camera pans back to reveal what is obviously a bathroom door. Moon has shut her self inside.

IHF: (knocking on the door) Moon, sweetie. We have to change your diaper.

There is no sound from within the bathroom. THE HUSBAND enters frame, bemused and holding a cup of coffee. He pats his wife on the shoulder.

HUSBAND: I’m sure it’s just a phase.



  1. Ugh! I remember that phase well with my first daughter. Diaper changing turned into wrestle mania!

  2. “And in this corner, weighing in at 20 lbs, give or take a few..”

    Thanks for the image, and the knowledge that I’m not alone on this one.
