Professional photo shoots of babies are cute. Leaving them naked for the shoot gives the images a natural ambience. That's probably what Al Ferguson was looking for when Kirsty Grant photographed him with his newborn son Ted.
But once you become a parent, black and white images of naked babies aren't charming. They're alarming. A baby without a diaper is a time bomb. Which is precisely what Ferguson learned:
And Ted detonated just as the photographer snapped her shutter. His father wrote:
During the shoot I felt his tummy muscles tense up and in that moment I knew what was about to happen. Unfortunately, it was just a moment and before I could do anything Ted exploded from his bum.
A warning to Mr. Ferguson: you have seen only the beginning of it. There will many, many more poop explosions in your life.
Look at the satisfied grin on that baby's face!
