I furrow my brows as I push DOOM guy through the Mars installation in search of the key I need to progress. I kick my legs in frustration causing my purple T-shirt to flutter and the Pampers Cruisers diaper hugging my waist to crinkle. “DARN IT!” I inhale and exhale as I open the pause menu, then voices reach my ears.
I jump to my feet and waddle toward my door to poke my head into the hall. I can see Brian walking toward the door and another man a few inches shorter than him. This other man Brian just called Dad has straight, gray hair and blue eyes, is wearing a blue T-shirt, blue jeans, and white tennis shoes, “Dad?” I blink twice when the older man turns to spot me and I duck back into my bedroom. “Brian’s Daddy came over.”
I slide onto my padded bottom and hissing echoes around me when I hear the screech of a demon behind me. I jump to my feet and turn toward my gaming laptop to close out the game, “Darn it! I thought I closed you out.”
Brendan smiles as he inches toward my doorway and watches me scan my computer’s Start Menu for another game to start, “So this is Stacey. He became such a cute toddler.” Brendan taps my shoulder, “Stacey?”
I tense up at the sudden shoulder tap and hissing echoes around me as my fear ramps up. I turn to Brendan whilst the hissing continues and my Pampers Cruisers diaper’s wetness indicator fades from green to yellow-green, “He…hello. Daddy…right?”
Brendan ruffles my hair, “Yep, Stacey. I’m your daddy. You never had a daddy before huh?” He darts his eyes around my gaming setup and chuckles at all the empty baby bottles and the lone empty bowl that once contained my chocolate granola bites. Brendan returns his focus on me.
I bow my head and press my index fingers together, “In my old life not really. Real dad was a meaniehead and tried to pit me against my mom. Mom didn’t like him because he was immature, and they divorced when I was 3.” I train my eyes on Brendan and giggle when he pokes my belly, “You’re my new daddy? Daddy…” I smile and giggle when Brendan lifts me into the air and spins me around, “WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!”
Brendan chuckles as he stops spinning me and hugs me close whilst patting my diapered bottom, “Yep, I’m your Daddy now, Stacey.” Brendan walks over to my changing table and lays me down, “And first task as Daddy is to get my little boy in fresh Pampers.”
I smile toward Brendan as he unfastens my soaked Pampers, “Daddy?” My right thumb finds my mouth and I smile around my thumb as I suck. I scan Brendan’s loving eyes as he lifts my legs and slides the soaked diaper away.
Brendan holds my legs with his left hand and works on getting me dry with his right hand, “Yes, Little Boy? What’s on your mind?”
I turn toward my toy chest and slide my thumb out of my mouth, “Where’d Brian go?”
Brendan swallows as he lowers my legs so he can roll my soaked diaper into a ball, “Brian had to work.” Brendan winces at the potential tantrum, but it doesn’t come. Brendan sighs mentally as he tosses the old diaper into my diaper pail and grabs the baby powder, “You’re not upset?”
I shake my head as Brendan lifts my legs with his left hand and powders my uplifted bottom with his right hand, “Nah…Brian has to work and has to in order to keep providing me with all the delicious foods and stuffs I like. Plus, I get to spend time with Mommy and Daddy so it’s a win-win.”
Brendan smiles at my maturity as he slides a fresh Pampers Cruisers diaper under my bottom, “That’s very mature for a toddler, Stacey.” Brendan brings the green circle decorated shell up to my belly and secures the right tape, “I had some plans for today.”
I smile when Daddy finishes taping the new diaper snug around my waist, “Yay! Fresh diapey!” I stand up on the table and shake my freshly diapered bottom, “Heee…fresh diapey! Fresh diapey!” I giggle and continue shaking my bottom until I hear a click. I turn to see Brendan holding his iPhone, “HEY!”
Brendan slides his iPhone back into his right jeans pocket and boops my nose, “I couldn’t resist. You were so cute.” Brendan lifts me into his strong arms and hugs me close whilst patting my diapered bottom.
I giggle and smile as I rest my head over Brendan’s shoulder, “Daddy?” I dart my eyes around my bedroom as Brendan slowly carries me around whilst patting my diapered bottom, “Daddy what were you planning for today since Brian’s at work?”
Brendan walks over to my changing table and stands me up on it so he can kneel to grab my diaper bag, “Well…” Brendan rises to his full five foot height and ruffles my hair whilst resting my diaper bag over his shoulder, “Brian told me you had a doctor’s appointment today and then after that we could do whatever.”
I whimper as those words echo in my mind, “Doctor’s appointment?”
Brendan ruffles my hair and walks over to grab my white tennis shoes, “Yep, just a yearly check up to make sure you’re a healthy and happy toddler.” Brendan sets my shoes down by my feet and pats my bottom, “Once you put your shoes on we can go.”
I scan my shoes, then focus on my bare feet. I wiggle my toes and train my worried eyes on Brendan, “Daddy…” I slide onto my crinkling bottom while my eyes never leave him, “you’re not gonna leave me alone are you?”
Brendan grabs the socks from with the left shoe and slides the socks onto my feet, “Of course not. It’s a Daddy’s job to make sure everything is alright and that’s why I’m going to be there with you throughout the whole ordeal.”
“O…okay.” I blink twice as I watch Daddy slide my tennis shoes onto my feet and tie them both with double knots, just like Brian does. I clap my tennis shoe covered feet together then glance down to the Pampers Cruisers diaper hugging my waist. I trace the colorful circles and giggle as the diaper crinkles, “Do I hafta wear pants, Daddy?”
Brendan lifts me into his arms and sets me on his shoulders, “You’re okay, Stacey.” Brendan slides my diaper bag over his shoulder and chuckles, “Only time I’d recommend you wear pants is at a restaurant.” Brendan holds onto my legs and heads toward the front door of the apartment, “Off we go.”
I rub my eyes and rest my head atop Brendan’s as he heads toward the elevators, “Daddy? What kinda car do you have?”
Brendan pokes my nose and smiles when I giggle while he exits the apartment complex, “You’ll see.”
My eyes widen when Brendan stops in front of a blue Nissan Skyline GT-R V-spec (1999), “Wow! That’s so cool!”
Brendan nods as he opens the passenger’s side door and pushes the seat forward to reveal the backseat sporting a purple car seat, “Yep, I told you it would be a surprise.” Brendan sets me in the car seat and secures the five-point harness with its single buckle resting in the middle end of the seat. Brendan sets my diaper bag down to my left and ruffles my hair, “Ready?”
I turn to my diaper bag and flip it open to grab an ice-cold baby bottle of Fruit Punch. I drive the bottle toward my mouth and smile at Daddy as I suckle the delicious juice. I pop the half-drained bottle from my lips and swing my legs, “I’m ready, Daddy!”
Brendan ruffles my hair and shuts the passenger side door, “Alrighty.” He hops into the driver’s seat and after the car’s twin-turbo inline six roars to life, he cruises out of the parking lot.
I giggle and swing my legs whilst crinkles echo around me. I drop my empty bottle on the floor and smile toward Daddy in the rear-view mirror, “This is so cool! I finally get to ride in my dream car, even if it is as a toddler in my parallel world, I still gets to do it!”
Brendan smiles back at me as he stops at the stoplight, “I’m glad, Stacey. Daddy’s happy that you’re enjoying this.”

Location: Office of Dr. Alexi Vladimir, Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, St. Louis, Missouri, United States of America
I dart my eyes around the waiting room containing chairs on both sides of the door I’m standing in front of. My eyes widen when I see a toy of miniature balls that can travel along several different loop tracks, “OOOOH!” I waddle-run toward the toy resting to the left of the doctor’s office waiting room while Daddy walks over to the check-in counter to the right of the door.
The receptionist smiles as she watches me giggle and play, then she turns her attention to Brendan, “He’s your little boy? He’s a cutiepie.”
Brendan smiles, “Yep. I’m here for a yearly checkup with Dr. Alexi Vladimir, Little Stacey’s pediatrician.”
The receptionist nods and types my name into the computer, “Yep, just take him through the door at the end of the room. Dr. Vladimir will be waiting for you in exam room 2 on your left.”
Brendan nods, “Thank you.” and walks over to the play area to see me sending all the square blocks through the loops. “Stacey?”
I turn to Daddy and smile, showing off my mouthful of baby teeth, “Yes, Daddy?”
Brendan offers his right hand, “Come on, Stace…the doctor’s waiting for us.”
I jump up from the play area and waddle over to take Brendan’s hand, “Okay, Daddy!” I swing his arm as he walks toward the giant double doors at the end of the doctor’s office waiting room. My eyes widen at the long hallway with doors on the left and right of me. I turn to my left and spot Exam Room 2, “There it is!”
I wiggle free of Daddy’s hold and waddle-run toward the door. I push at the door and grunt as I put my full force into the door causing it to open. “Whoa…” I wobble when I enter the exam room and before I can reach the white tiled floor, I feel hairy hands resting under my armpits. Once I’m standing on my feet, I spot a circular bearded, glasses wearing, pale skinned man in a white lab coat standing before me.
Dr. Alexi Vladimir chuckles as he sits on the exam table in the center of the exam room while holding me out at arm’s length, “Someone is a hyper little tot this morning.”
I dart my eyes around the exam room and spot a computer resting against the wall to the left. In the center of the left-hand wall rests twin cabinets hovering above a sink. I turn to my right and spot three chairs. To the left of the chairs is a changing table with a monitor above it. I turn toward Daddy and wave at him as he sits down in the middle chair.
I giggle when I look up to the person holding me, “Dr. Alexi!” I smile wide and kick my legs whilst my Pampers crinkle, “How are you?”
Dr. Alexi Vladimir smiles as he watches me kick my legs. Once my leg kicking stops, he sets me on my feet and kneels to me while he adjusts his glasses, “I’ve been well. We’re here for your checkup, yes?”
I nod and poke Dr. Vladimir’s nose, “Uh huh!”
Dr. Alexi Vladimir walks over to the computer and logs into the hospital records system. Within seconds Dr. Alexi Vladimir turns to me and pulls his stethoscope from around his neck, “First up, let’s check your breathing.”
“Okay.” I waddle over to my pediatrician and smile toward him whilst resting my hands on his leg.
Dr. Alexi Vladimir chuckles at my happy demeanor and lifts my T-shirt, “My first patient of the day, a happy go-lucky tot. You always manage to make me smile in the morning, Stace.”
I giggle when the ice-cold stethoscope’s metal reader contacts my skin, “COLD!”
Dr. Alexi Vladimir nods as he ruffles my hair with his free right hand, “Yep, just breathe for me.”
I inhale and exhale slowly while the cold metal reader darts across my belly and chest. I smile toward my pediatrician when he returns the stethoscope around his neck and begins typing at the computer, “So how’d I do?”
Dr. Alexi Vladimir smiles as he finishes typing in the first portion of the report and turns to ruffle my hair, “Your breathing is fine from what I hear. No obstructions or anything.” Dr. Alexi Vladimir turns toward the door and waves at the nurse approaching with a cart of different vials and needles, “Now we just need some blood work.”
I jump back from Dr. Alexi Vladimir, “DADDY!” and waddle-run toward Brendan whilst my fears rise and hissing echoes around me. “DADDY! DADDY!” I whimper and bury my head in Brendan’s chest while my tears soak his shirt.
Brendan rubs my back and pats my bottom, “Shhh…shhh…it’s gonna be okay.”
“NUUUUUU! I HATE NEEDLES!” I train my teary eyes on Brendan and hiccup as my Pampers Cruisers diaper’s wetness indicator glows yellow-green, “Dun make me get the shot.”
Brendan ruffles my hair and kisses my forehead, “It’s okay, just calm down. Daddy’s right here.” Brendan rises with me cradled in his arms and rocks me gently while wiping my tears with his thumb, “Daddy’s right here. I’m not gonna let the doctor hurt you. He’s here to make you feel better.”
I sniff as Brendan continues rocking me and my thumb finds my mouth, “Pwomise?” I suck my thumb and dart my eyes around the exam room. I sigh when I don’t see the nurse and find myself being lowered onto my feet, “Thankies, Daddy.”
Brendan smiles as he kneels in front of me and raspberries my belly, “No problem!”
I giggle and squeal as the tickling energy rushes through my body, “DADDY! HA! HA! HA! HAAAAAAAAAA!”
Brendan cradles me in his arms and lays me down on the exam table, “I’ve gotcha.” He turns to the doctor and winks. He turns back to me and begins tickling my feet, “TICKLE! TICKLE!”
My giggles echo across the doctor’s office exam room and I squirm on the exam table while Daddy continues tickling me, rendering me oblivious to Dr. Alexi Vladimir approaching with the needle and vial setup.
Dr. Alexi Vladimir smiles as he pokes my right arm and draws two vials of blood while my giggles echo across the room. After he pulls the needle, he places a SpongeBob Band-Aid on my arm and ruffles my hair, “All done.”
I turn from Daddy’s poking my belly and sit up on the exam table, “Done with what?” I glance down to my right arm and notice the SpongeBob bandage, “When did that happen?”
Dr. Alexi Vladimir chuckles as he sets the vials of blood on the cart and knocks on the door for the nurse to retrieve them, “Your Daddy protected you with tickles and giggles while I drew some blood for tests.”
Dr. Alexi Vladimir ruffles my hair as he lifts me off the exam table, “Now we just need to finish up with your height and weight, but…” Dr. Alexi Vladimir sets me on my feet and pats my diapered bottom, “I think you need a diaper change first.”
“I do?” I glance down to my Pampers Cruisers diaper hugging my waist and giggle at the yellow wetness indicator. I turn to Daddy who’s laying out a fresh diaper, wipes, and powder on the changing table with the monitor above it.
Brendan nods as he walks over to me and kneels, “You do.” He lifts me into the air and lays me down on the changing table, “You did good with the blood draw.” Brendan unfastens my soaked Pampers and lifts my legs to slide it away, “Didn’t he, Doctor?”
Dr. Alexi Vladimir nods while Brendan works on getting me clean and dry, “Yes he did. You were very brave, Stacey.”
I giggle and smile at my pediatrician while Daddy powders my uplifted bottom, “Really?”
Dr. Alexi Vladimir nods as Daddy slides a fresh diaper under my bottom, “Yes you were very brave, Stacey. I think your daddy should reward you for your bravery. You endured both the blood testing and the Tickle Monster.”
I smile toward Brendan as he secures the fresh Pampers Cruisers diaper snug around my waist, “I did. Daddy?” I sit up on the changing table and swing my legs over the edge whilst my fresh Pampers crinkle, “Daddy can we go get ice cream now?”
Brendan smiles as he returns the baby powder and wipes to my diaper bag, “We can,” He shuts my diaper bag and swings it over his shoulders, “after your checkup is done. Dr. Alexi still has to get your temperature, height, and weight.” Brendan turns to Dr. Alexi Vladimir, “Right?”
Dr. Alexi Vladimir gives Daddy a thumbs up and walks over to the changing table, “That’s right. What’s wonderful about this changing table is that it gives you weight measurements too.” Dr. Alexi Vladimir turns on the monitor and watches as a giant hourglass appears. Seconds later, he smiles at the readout:
Glennonvale Medical Technology – Infant and Toddler Weight and Changing Station
Child Name: Stacey Ayodele
Age Range: Toddler (2-6)
Weight: 40 pounds (18.1437 Kilograms)
Height: Undefined. Use height measurement utility.
Body Temperature: 98.6°F
Dr. Alexi Vladimir ruffles my hair and lifts me off the changing table, “You’re a healthy forty pound, four-year-old toddler.” He sets me on my feet in front of Daddy and pats my diapered bottom, “So Brendan, is Stacey looking at potty training at all?”
Brendan chuckles as he watches me waddle toward the chair that he put my diaper bag in, “I don’t think so. He wants to stay in Pampers. Stacey notices when he goes potty now, but by then he needs a diaper change.” Brendan smiles as he watches me sit down beside my diaper bag and swing my legs, “He’s a cute toddler, he loves his Pampers, and he doesn’t have any feeling before he goes potty. So, I don’t think potty training is going to happen.”
“Right, so his bladder is still too weak to exhibit control.” Dr. Alexi Vladimir enters the information into his computer and turns back to Brendan and me, “That being the case, he should stay in Pampers. Just make sure to check him often. Don’t want him getting diaper rash.”
Brendan chuckles while I waddle over to him, “That’s why we opted for the diapers with the wetness indicators and fading designs so we can tell. That, and Stacey comes to us when he needs a new diaper.” Brendan pats my diapered bottom, “Right, Stacey?”
I giggle at Daddy patting my diapered bottom, “Uh huh! I can tell when I need diapey changies.” I smile toward Brendan and my pediatrician, “And then either Brian or Mommy or Daddy give me changies. I’ve never gotten diaper rash. No worries about that.”
“That’s good to hear.” Dr. Alexi Vladimir enters the information into his computer and turns back to us, “What about schooling?”
Brendan rubs the back of his head, “His big brother homeschools him; we haven’t thought of getting him in a public school due to his diaper dependance.”
“That’s understandable.” Dr. Alexi Vladimir rises and walks over to me, “Ready for the last stage of your checkup, Stacey?”
I turn from Daddy to my pediatrician and nod, “Uh huh!” When he opens the door, I waddle into the hallway where I spot a tall metal thing device resting between the doors of exam rooms 4 and 6. This tall metal device sports a t-bar at the top and a giant plate that I can stand on at the bottom. I turn to my pediatrician with a raised eyebrow, “What this?”
“It measures how tall you are.” Dr. Alexi Vladimir playfully swats my diapered bottom in the direction of the device, “Hop on.”
I waddle over to the device and giggle when I hear the t-bar inching down toward me. I glance toward it and notice a black screen in the middle of the t-bar. I turn to my pediatrician with a smile, “What’s it say?”
Dr. Alexi Vladimir presses the red button on the t-bar which sends the data to his computer, “You’re three feet tall, Stacey. That’s normal for most toddlers.” Once the machine returns to its neutral position, Dr. Alexi Vladimir turns me toward Daddy, “Now you’re all done, Stacey.” Dr. Alexi Vladimir pats my diapered bottom twice and smiles, “Your Daddy has your summary papers in your diaper bag. I printed them for him at the printer by the computer.”
I smile toward my pediatrician and poke his belly, “Poke. Thankies!”
Dr. Alexi Vladimir smiles at my belly poke, “You’re welcome, Stacey. Have a good day.”
“Yay!” I waddle over to Daddy and wrap my arms around his waist, “Daddy! Daddy! Let’s go get ice cream!”
Brendan kneels to return my hug and pat my diapered bottom, “Alrighty, let’s head out.”
