Smell test

At lunchtime, Kris was playing with our baby and smelled him to see if he needed a diaper change.

"Does he need one?" I asked.

"I don't know ..." Kris said, handing him over to me to test.

"He definitely needs one," I said. "How can you not know he needs one - you normally have such a good sense of smell! Of course, you smell manure all day long. Not human."

"Yeah," Kris said. "I was pulling a calf this morning, and I slipped on the wet grass and landed with my hand right in the middle of a cow patty. I thought, well, at least I didn't fall on my butt."

"No wonder you can't smell his diaper," I said.

"I might be immune," he agreed.

150 calves born ... 150 more to go!
