of an 18 year old boy who had the mentality of a toddler, needed
to be changed and fed, and whose bad habits (Masturbating in
public) should be ignored. When the sitter arrived, the giant
baby was Dr Diaper himself. On another occasion, a prospective
baby sitter said Dr Diaper had come to her door once carrying his
own 3 year old son because he could not find a real baby sitter
for the boy while he went out on his escapade.

before pitching to him.

car got in a few minutes later, started it up, and ran over
