When we make the decision to bring a child into the world, our lives are irrevocably changed from that moment forward. And we discover that we are pregnant, we start making lifestyle changes to accommodate our new bundle (or bundles in the case of twins) of joy.
At that point, we might begin creating our nursery, and we start putting together the baby’s wardrobe. Some folks put together their newborn’s wardrobe for the entire year!
One thing we all have to discuss during this time is who’s going to handle specific “responsibilities.”
After all, having a baby isn’t all fun and games. It also involves lots of sleepless nights, headaches (usually from the screaming baby), and burping (which can leave a messy surprise on your shirt).
It wasn’t too long ago that the mother had to bare all of the primary responsibilities for taking care of a baby. They would be the ones get up in the middle of the night to tend to their needs and continue to do so throughout the day.
For most women back then, caring for a baby was a 24/7 365 day job with very few breaks.
Thankfully, today, more men have gotten involved in the earliest child-rearing stages in their children’s lives.
For many families, gone are the days when the fathers just kicked back and let his wife do all the work while he just did the fun stuff such as playing with the baby.
Today more men are stepping up and taking on the challenge of doing all the dirty jobs once left exclusively to women.
And in many cases, such as this one, they do a fantastic job!
Every once in a while, however, there is one particular job that puts parents in a rather tricky spot.
By now, you’ve probably guessed that the job we’re referring to is changing diapers.
If you’ve never had the pleasure of changing a full diaper before, let me tell you it’s really something you need to experience at least once in your lifetime.
Of course, I’m being cheeky, but the reality is that it is an experience that’s unlike anything else you’ve had before.
Some folks are able to do it without much difficulty, while others struggle.
Take this dad, for example, who had a very low gag reflex and obviously was having a spot of trouble accomplishing his smelly mission.
His reactions to his daughter’s dirty diaper had both parents cracking up with laughter.
Even funnier was the baby’s reaction as she giggled with delight at her daddy’s responses.
Give this video a look, and you’re not laughing until your gut hurts, you may need a new funny bone.
