Chapter 20
Chapter 20 (Father & Son Tales – Sweet Treats And Sports)


Chapter Description: Bonds between me and my daddy are stronger after the doctor’s visit and now we’re going to do lots more together. ICE CREAM! ICE CREAM! ICE CREAM! and something more…I just don’t know what yet.


Date: Monday 27-Dec-21 10:26 (Monday, December 27, 2021, 10:26 AM)
Location: Cold Stone Creamery, St. Louis, Missouri, United States of America
       I giggle as Brendan pulls into the parking lot of Cold Stone Creamery, “I can’t wait!” I swing my legs and my Pampers crinkle with my happy movements.
       Brendan nods as he pulls into a spot a few feet to the left of the door, “I’m glad you’re excited, Stacey. You earned this ice cream. You can have anything you want.”
       “Yay!” I kick my legs faster and my giggles echo around the car as I watch Daddy walk toward the passenger’s side. I smile toward him and boop his nose as he unbuckles my car seat. I jump out of his car while he swings my diaper bag over his shoulder. I waddle toward the front door of the ice cream shop and when I open it, a chill runs down my spine at the sudden drop in temperature.
       I waddle up to the counter and lick my lips at the different flavors of ice cream. I turn to Daddy when he stops to my left, “What flavor do you want, Daddy?”
       Brendan ruffles my hair, “I’m going to get vanilla.” and turns to the server. “One large vanilla cup please?”
       I smile toward the server, “Large vanilla cup and…and…yeah that’s all for now.”
       Brendan smiles as he pays the server $20 for the two ice creams and walks toward a table resting against the window to the right of the door. “We can sit here, Stacey.”
       I take the cupholder containing our ice cream and turn to see Daddy waving at me, “Okay, Daddy! I coming!” I waddle toward the table and smile when I reach it a few minutes later.
       Brendan takes his ice cream and spoon and sets mine across from him. He chuckles when he sees me struggling to get into the higher height chair, “Need some help, Little Buddy?”
       I turn to Daddy when I land on my diapered bottom, “Yush!” I raise my arms and flex my hands, “Uppies! Uppies!”
       Brendan lifts me into his arms and kisses my forehead, “Uppies you can have.” He sets me in my chair and pokes my ice cream with my spoon, “There ya go.”
       I lick my lips, “Thankies, Daddy!” and drive my spoon through my ice cream.
       Brendan smiles as he watches me slowly enjoy my ice cream, “Glad you’re enjoying yourself, Stacey.”

Location: Cold Stone Creamery, St. Louis, Missouri, United States of America
       I belch and giggle as I push my cup toward the center of the table, “Daddy?”
       Brendan withholds a chuckle at my ice cream decorated face, “Yes?” He grabs a baby wipe from my diaper bag and reaches over to clean my face, “Silly Tot is Messy Tot.”
       I giggle as the baby wipe sails across my face and I swing my legs allowing my Pampers to crinkle, “DADDY! THAT’S COLD! Heee…”
       Brendan smiles as he removes the wipe and kisses my forehead, “Yes, but now my baby boy’s face is all clean.”
       I giggle and jump down from my chair, “Daddy?” I waddle over to him and tug on his pants leg, “Daddy whatcha wanna do now? Can we do something together?”
       Brendan rises from the table and kneels to boop my nose, “Sure. How about baseball?”
       I tilt my head, “I dunno how to play. Can you teach me, Daddy?”
       Brendan ruffles my hair, “Of course. There’s a baseball field a few yards down from where we are. I also packed a baseball and couple bats in the car just for the occasion.” Brendan pulls me into a hug and pats my diapered bottom as he rises to his full height, “Come on, let’s go.”
       “Yay!” I rest my head over Brendan’s shoulder and smile as he carries me out of the ice cream shop toward his car. Seconds after I’m set me on my feet, my eyes widen at seeing Daddy pull out a purple stroller along with a couple bats and baseballs. I giggle as I watch him open the stroller and put the bats and baseballs in the rear compartment. “Wow, Daddy! Do you always have all this stuff?”
       Brendan turns to me while pushing the stroller toward me, “Only when I’m babysitting my littlest boy.” Brendan pats the stroller seat, “Come on and sit down, Stacey.”
       I waddle over to the stroller and sit down. I smile at the soft comfy pillow-like feel of the stroller and swing my legs as Daddy pushes me along the sidewalk, “This is nice.”
       Brendan smiles down at me, “I’m glad you like it. Daddy’s always ready to get his baby boy anywhere in style.”
       I giggle as I dart my eyes across the stroller and notice the cup holder and tray to my left, while a pouch containing two baby bottles of lemonade and two containers of snacks rest to my right, “Wow, gots snackies and babas in here.” I pull one of the bottles and suckle the sweet lemonade while swinging my legs, “Thankies, Daddy!”
       Brendan nods as he turns down the sidewalk to our right, “You’re welcome, Stacey.”
       ……
Date: Monday 27-Dec-21 11:10 (Monday, December 27, 2021, 11:10 AM)
Location: Little League Baseball Field, St. Louis, Missouri, United States of America
       My eyes widen as I’m pushed through the open gate, and I find a huge baseball diamond to my left while bleachers rise around the left and right sides of the baseball diamond. To my right rests a covered bench seating area, “Is that what they call a dugout, Daddy?” I blink twice as Daddy pushes me toward it.
       Brendan nods, “Yep, that’s what it’s called, Stacey.” He stops the stroller in the middle of the dugout and takes out the bats and baseballs which he sets on the bench to my right. He turns to me and walks over to unbuckle me from my stroller, “Ready?”
       I jump out of my stroller and nod with wide eyes, “Yeah!” I waddle-run toward the baseball swinger position and turn to Daddy with a smile as he approaches with a baseball, catcher’s mitt, and a baseball bat, “So Imma try hitting it first, Daddy!”
       Brendan nods as he sets the ball at my feet and stands behind me while handing me the bat. “Got it?”
       I grip the bat and nod, “Uh huhs!”
       Brendan lightly moves my arms with the bat, “You swing from left to right when you see the ball. When you hit it, you run toward the next base.” After guiding my arms ten times, he walks toward the pitcher’s mound a few feet in front of me and claps the baseball with his catcher mitt, “Let’s see if you can hit it.”
       I squat and scan the ball as Daddy bounces it in his glove, “Otay!” My eyes narrow when he lightly throws it and I track it. I swing the bat and the ball flies past me while I inadvertently throw the bat, “Darn it!” I waddle over to pick up the bat and return to the batter’s position.
       Brendan smiles as he returns to the pitcher’s mound, “It’s alright, you can do it, Stacey. You just gotta keep your eye on the ball. Let’s try again.”
       I sniff and nod, “Otay, Daddy.”
       ……
Date: Monday 27-Dec-21 11:23 (Monday, December 27, 2021, 11:23 AM)
Location: Little League Baseball Field, St. Louis, Missouri, United States of America
       My eyes narrow when Daddy tosses the ball and I swing resulting in me losing the bat while the ball hits my chest, “AWWWWWWWWWWWW…” I stomp my foot and tears swim in my eyes, “I CAN’T DO IT!” I stomp my feet and cross my arms as I glare at the bat sitting on the ground next to me, “I CAN’T! I HATE THIS!” I’ve been at this for what seems like an hour and I still can’t get it. Stoopid! It’s stoopid! I hate baseball! I hate it! I hate it! I hate it!
       Brendan walks over to me and kneels, “It’s alright. It takes a while to get the hang of it. Stacey really has the mannerisms and mindset of a toddler. We’ve only been trying for about 13 minutes and he’s already wanting to give in. Still, I’m gonna help him overcome this and we’re still gonna have fun.”
       Brendan wipes my tears with his gentle thumb and pulls me into a warm hug. He rubs my back and pats my diapered bottom, “How about we just play catch and hone your eye tracking?”
       I sniffle as Daddy brings me out of the hug, “Otay.” I waddle after him as he heads over to the dug out to fit me with a catcher’s mitt. I giggle at the giant brown glove covering my right hand, “It’s big!”
       Brendan nods, “Yep, it has to cover your whole hand, so you don’t get hurt.” Brendan walks over to the pitcher’s mound. “Alright, I’m gonna throw soft and I want you to track the ball like you’ve been doing, okay?”
       I nod and squat while Daddy bounces the ball in his mitt, “I’m ready, Daddy!”
       Brendan smiles and tosses the ball.
       I smile as I raise my mitt-covered right hand and catch the ball, “Yay! I did it!”
       Brendan smiles at my accomplishment, “Good job, Stacey.”
       I shake my diapered bottom as I toss the ball back to Daddy, “Hee…this is a little better. I think I can get the hang of this.” Seconds after catching my fifth ball, I slide my mitt off and waddle over to the dugout to grab a baby bottle of lemonade, “Lemonade break!”
       Brendan smiles as he watches me approach the batter’s position while suckling down my bottle, “Thirsty huh?”
       “Uh huh!” I pull the empty bottle from my mouth and drop it on the ground, “That was delicious, let’s finish!”
       Brendan nods as he goes to grab a bottle of water and drains it, “Yeah! This is fun.” He returns to the pitcher’s mound and claps the ball with his mitt, “We might not be hitting baseballs today, but at least his eye tracking is getting better.”
       ……

Location: Little League Baseball Field, St. Louis, Missouri, United States of America
       I wobble when I catch the ball. I yawn and rub my eyes with my free left hand, “Daaady…”
       Brendan removes his catcher’s mitt and walks over to lift me into his arms. He boops my nose as I rest my head in the crook of his arm, “Did you have fun today?” Brendan walks over to the dugout and sets me on one of the benches so he can pack up my stroller.
       I yawn and rub my eyes as Daddy takes my catcher’s mitt off my right hand, “Uh huh! Lotsa fun.” I swing my legs whilst hissing echoes as the five bottles I had during our game of catch leaves my body and turns my Pampers Cruisers diaper’s wetness indicator to yellow. I glance down to my diaper when I hear the hissing noise. I giggle when the noise fades and I notice the yellow wetness indicator, “Daddy?”
       I jump up from the bench and waddle over to him as he finishes packing up my stroller, “Daddy?”
       Brendan turns to me and kneels to ruffle my hair, “What’s up?”
       I grab a fresh diaper from my diaper bag and turn to Daddy, “Daddy, I think I need changies.”
       Brendan ruffles my hair and kneels to see my diaper’s yellow wetness indicator, “Yep you’re wet, but your diaper can hold until we get home.”
       I press my index fingers together as I waddle alongside Daddy as he pushes the stroller toward the car, “Bu…bu Daddy I dun like wet diapees. When I sit down they squish and it doesn’t feel goods.”
       Brendan stops at the car and sets the supplies in the trunk, “Which diapers do that?”
       I whimper and press my index fingers together while bowing my head, “Cruisers when the indicator is blue. It’s…it’s rare to see that one, but…but still…”
       Brendan ruffles my hair and lifts me into his arms, “Green means dry, Yellow-Green is Wet, Yellow is Wet, Blue is soaked. As long as your diaper isn’t in the blue you won’t leak.” Brendan sets me in my car seat and kisses my forehead, “Just hold off on drinking another bottle until we get home.”
       “Bu…” I press my index fingers together, “I like the taste.”
       Brendan pulls a purple pacifier from my diaper bag and pushes it into my mouth, “How’s that?”
       I suckle the pacifier and smile around it as the grape juice flavor caresses my tastebuds, “Fankies, Daddy!”
       Brendan kisses my forehead and shuts the passenger door. He hums as he hops in the driver’s seat and cruises home.

       I smile toward Daddy as he enters my bedroom and lays me on my changing table, “Thankies, Daddy.” I spit out the pacifier and poke Daddy’s nose, “Thankies for the paci too.”
       Brendan unfastens my wet Pampers and lifts my legs to slide it away, “No problem, Stacey. Daddy’s always here to make you happy and make sure you’re in dry Pampers.”
       I giggle as the cold wipes contact my skin and I kick my legs, “Yush, Daddy! Heee…Thankies for babysitting me.”
       Brendan nods as he tosses the last wipe into my wet diaper and lowers my legs so he can ball the old diaper up, “You’re welcome, Stacey.”
       I yawn and rub my eyes as Daddy lifts my legs with his left hand so he can powder my uplifted bottom with his right hand, “Daddy?”
       Brendan sets the baby powder down and grabs a fresh Pampers Cruisers diaper to flick unfolded, “Yes, Little Boy?”
       I giggle as Daddy slides the fresh diaper under my bottom and brings the green circle decorated shell up to my belly, “I love you, Daddy. Will you nappy bye with me?”
       Brendan secures the left tape of my new diaper, “Sure Daddy can nap with you. Daddy’s pretty tired himself.” Brendan secures the right tape of my new diaper and lifts me into his arms. He hugs me close and pats my freshly diapered bottom as he heads toward the bathroom, “All dry, Baby Boy.”
       I giggle as Daddy carries me into the bathroom and sets me on my feet. I yawn while watching Daddy wash his hands, “Daddy…” I waddle toward him and wrap my arms around his waist, “Nappy bye…”
       Brendan chuckles as he dries off his hands and peels my hands from around his waist. He kneels and internally dawws at me sleepily rubbing my eyes, “Sleepy baby. Daddy has a sleepy baby boy on his hands.” Brendan scoops me into his arms and hugs me close whilst patting my diapered bottom as he heads for the living room.
       Brendan yawns as he lies down on the couch, “Daddy loves you, Stacey.”
       I smile toward Daddy as his loving smile radiates toward me, “I love you too, Daddy.” I yawn and rest my head on Daddy’s chest. I giggle as Daddy’s strong arms wrap around me. I’ve got a mommy in Brian’s Mom. I’ve got Brian and Denis as my big brothers. Now, I’ve got a daddy in Brian’s Dad. I’m the happiest toddler in the world.
       I yawn and grab hold of Daddy’s shirt while my smile widens and my eyes droop closed, “I love you, Daddy…bestest…daddy…ever.”
       Brendan pats my diapered bottom as he watches me fall into a deep, peaceful sleep. “I love you too, Stacey. You’re the best little boy a Daddy could ever ask for.” Brendan yawns as he watches his new little boy nap on his chest, and soon he follows the little tot into sleep.
