Some “new dad” thoughts

Some “new dad” thoughts

If they call it a “Diaper Genie,” how come it doesn’t make the diapers disappear? What we really need is a “Diaper Incinerator 3000, now with nuclear power!” Actually, what I’d really like is for one of those flashing-red warning lights and a siren that goes off when I open it and it intones, “Warning: Hazardous Waste exposure.” Although I suppose at 3 am, it wouldn’t be quite so fun.

And for such a little girl, how does she produce so many dirty diapers. Is she retaining any of that milk for herself or is passing through like you-know-what through a goose?

Of course, I shouldn’t complain. My brother has been changing diapers for nearly the past 14 years, with only a brief couple of months between the potty training of one and the arrival of the next. (Was that between JohnPaul and Domenic or Domenic and Catherine? I can’t keep track.)

  • Pardon me for heading down this road…

    Babies and diapers come in handy for covering up plenty of smells. I used the babies as covers on many occassions.

    Wife: “what’s that smell? I just changed the diaper.”

    Self:“Ummm…maybe…errr…the diaper needs changing again.”

  • As the father of a son born Sunday and home since Tuesday, I can give a limited endorsement of the Diaper Champ.

    Of course, the boy is so new I haven’t had to empty it yet. Must be getting pretty full by now … yikes.
