    Didn't Get Far Off the Ground.

    Okay I might have gotten the idea from a song, but I changed the words to better suit this posting. Clutch...clutch....now give yourself a yank upwards and see how that works out for ya. It's might be awkward at first, but you'll see what I mean soon enough.

    Most people who like diapers like them big and bulky, but personally I like pull ups more than other diapers. They're so cute and a major turn on. Pullups are my favorite :3
