"Oh, my God! MJ! What are you feeding her?!" Peter lifted the putrid diaper away from the squirming bundle on the changing table.

"Give me a break, Peter," Mary Jane chided her husband as she brought a fresh diaper for little May. "I know you've dealt with much worse."

Peter held it gingerly from the tips of sticky fingers. "This could seriously be used as a weapon..." His eyes suddenly lit upon a copy of the Daily Bugle, with its expected slanderous headline. A sly smile crept across his face.

"I've got an idea of how to use these..."

Yeah, I kind of wish we'd seen this stage in the comics... they jumped right to May as a teenager, and the baby brother is the second child, so we missed all the "firsts" of parenting. :)

Well, this comes from the comic Spider-Girl which is in an alternate universe from the main comics. (In the main titles, Peter and MJ are married, and lost baby May in the mid-90s to mysterious circumstances). I much prefer this happier version of the Parker family.

I do have a Spider-Girl fic which you might like - and a lot of people without comics knowledge have read and enjoyed it! - Dissonance.

LOL!! Very well done. Only Peter would consider to use a dirty diaper as a weapon. I have a feeling that I know who he'll use it on. He he he he.

Oh, I don't doubt you know. The trick is to make it unclear who delivered the "surprise"... :D

Hee. Heeeeee. Heeeeeeeeeeeee.

Of course, I'd always pictured little May being spider-powered from the beginning, so there would little things like:

MJ: "Peter! She's climbing the walls again!"
Peter: "So, just pull her down."
MJ: "I can't! She won't let go!"
Peter: "Hey, that's good! Means she won't fall..."
MJ: "If you don't get in here right now, I'll give your spider-sense something to tingle about..."

Boy, wouldn't that have been a trainwreck! I can only imagine.

Maybe it is for the best that she developed the powers at 15... :D

Her first words would be "no-no-may". :)
