Sarah hugged her grandmother nervously. She was well aware of her present state.
" hello Sarah, my how you have grown. " grandma said. It was at that moment that the smell hit everyone’s nose.
" smells like I have to change someone. " Sandy spoke up.
" you mean she is actually in diapers? " grandmother inquired. " yes mother. I told you all about it on the phone. Sarah is a baby for the summer. " " i thought you were kidding " " well i wasn’t " Grandma stood and looked at her daughter and grand daughter for a moment. She had the feeling of someone trying to grasp a difficult concept and not getting it.
" well, " she said after moment. " The guest room is yours. "
" Thank you mom " Sandy responded as she whisked Sarah inside for a much needed diaper change.
Soon a diaper was changed and Sarah sat up on the bed. Sandy sat down on the bed and looked at her daughter. " I want you to stay here for a few minutes. Your grandmother and I need to talk in private. OK. " " OK mom. " With that Sandy placed a pacifier in Sarah’s lips and left. Sarah laid back down and began to think about what the weekend held. She was not sure about anything anymore. She had wanted to be in diapers and be a baby for so long and now some of it was starting to rub her the wrong way. She saw the strange look in Grandmother’s eyes and new that tomorrow she would see the same look in everyone’s eyes. It began to make her feel very uncomfortable. Sarah started to cry a little at the thought of what was coming. Part of her tears were for sadness and surprising part of them were for joy. She wanted to be a baby and from the looks of it got exactly what she wanted. Sarah wondered what they were talking about in the other room. Sarah strained her ears to try and pick up the conversation. But all she could here was mumbles. There voices were not loud enough to pick up and distinct words. It was then she heard her mother plain as day scream. " I want my daughter to get over the idea of being a baby and if this is the best way to do it I will. "
Sarah was shocked. She thought her mother was doing this out of love. Instead she was doing this out of something else all together. Sarah Lay back in the bed and cried herself to sleep.
A while later Sarah woke up and looked around her. Her mother was looking at her and smiling. " Are you OK honey?" Sandy asked. Sarah wanted so badly to tell her mother off. After all she had just learned that her mother was punishing her with baby treatment not loving her with it. But looking into her mothers eyes at that moment all she could think to say was " I’m fine. " " good everyone is downstairs waiting for you." " Everyone? " Sarah said apprehensively. " Yes everyone now lets get you changed and downstairs. " It was then that Sarah realized she was soaking wet. Soon she was in dry diapers and her mother was helping her to her feat. " Mom " " yes dear" " what about pants? " "Honey its to hot for pant and besides babies often run around in just diapers and a tea shirt and you are a baby for the summer. "
Sarah looked at her mother in shock. She actually was gonna let her wear just diapers. Sarah was not sure about this. She had hoped to hide her baby state a little bit. Now it was gonna be on display for everyone to see. Sarah slowly left the guestroom and headed down the hall to the main living room. She could hear everyone talking as she approached the room and felt a quiet when she entered into the room. Everyone looked up and saw her enter the room. It seemed like forever with everyone staring at her. But in reality it was only a second. Soon a strong man stood up from his comfy chair and walked over to Sarah. He reached out and gave her a big bear hug. " I thought you were gonna sleep the whole weekend away Sarah. " " Not a chance uncle Jack. " Sarah answered. That seemed to release the tension in the room. Soon everyone was hugging her and talking about stuff. The fact the she was standing there wearing nothing but a diaper and a tea shirt was not even brought up. Soon everyone settled back down in their chairs and Sarah looked around the room for a place to sit. " Over hear " Her mother called her. Sarah looked over and was surprised to see a playpen set up. OH course she thought as she walked over and climbed in. The conversations that were happening before Sarah walked into the room resumed and Sarah just sat in her playpen and listened. Sarah would learn later that Grandma with her mothers help had explained to everyone what was going on and that everyone had agreed to keep things as normal as possable. Otherwise Sarah and Sandy would have left and that would have been sad.
