Honestly if baby and parents are both that difficult, I would be looking to replace. And no, you shouldn't deal with blowouts. Bodily fluids need to be contained in a diaper. Period.

I deduct all the same business expenses now as I did when I owned. I can't deduct the mortgage interest now though, because I don't pay it. That is the biggest thing I have noticed.
