Six Sentence Sunday


In this excerpt from A New Dream my hero Matt is babysitting for the first time. Chris is Matt's brother, and Violet is Matt's fiancee. A New Dream is available at http://www.astraeapress.com/#ecwid:category=662249&mode=product&product=2676585

Violet watched with interest as Matt laid Tyler on the sofa
and removed his diaper. He reached for a clean one, but Tyler,
stimulated by the cold air on his bottom, started to wet all over
Matt, the sofa, and himself. The child screamed as the hot wetness
struck him in the face. Matt, hurriedly capped his hand over the
stream. He looked around for something to wipe Tyler’s face with,
but when he didn’t see anything he used his shirt sleeve.

Chris cracked up. “You’re getting all wet, Matt.”

I know we didn't have Six Sentence Sunday last week, but I'm a creature of habit and did it anyway. If you'd care to read it, it's available.

Maybe next time he'll have the clean diaper ready. Or at least a towel. Love the six
