Something stinks in my house. It smells a little bit like rotted food, a little bit like human gas, and a little bit like a dirty diaper. I cannot find the source and it's driving me crazy and now making me wonder if I really smell it or if I'm just imagining it.

We have this routine where Ruthie disposes of her own diapers. After we change her diaper and we take her off the changing table and put her on the floor, she starts pointing at the discarded diaper and whining and grunting. If it's only #1, she will carry it to the trash can and toss it in. If it's #2, she gets a grocery bag, hands it to David or I, and then we hold it open while she puts the diaper in. We tie it, hand it to her, and then she walks it to the front door. We hang it on the front door knob (outside) until we go outside the next time and toss it in the outside trashcan. (I should try to get a video of this!)

So, I'm thinking that perhaps something may have happened in the middle of the routine the past couple days and there's a dirty diaper sitting around here somewhere.

If it's any consolation, you didn't smell bad tonight at all, so I'm guessing it's not you ;)

Somehow I missed this! :-) I hope you found it!! This happens in my car every now and then, and after a few times, I realized that the plastic bags from the grocery that I keep in the back (for recycling or emergencies) - if there's any milk in there? After a week or so, smells JUST LIKE a dirty diaper!
