Trump



I once read how Donald Trump's son had said he wouldn't change his babies nappies cause "Trumps don't do diapers".

He thought it made him seem powerful. All I could think was what a complete moron. Changing diapers is one of life's highlights. I mean it. I've changed thousands.

Not every diaper change is memorable, but so many are. Helping that tiny little person, blowing air over his or her tummy, tickling a little, laughing together, lavishing the child with encouragement and love. Getting intense wordless love back, first giggles, sensing the heartfelt relief of getting rid of that old diaper. It's about connecting.

Trumps don't do diapers. How much else have you not understood about life?
I LOVE MY BABIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And the people they've grown up to be!
look at that loose skin, that shadow of hair, that toothless grin, the arms that can't contain their joy! can't take it!

Truthiness. When else do you get so much eye contact with your child? +1 on the baby changing bandwagon. Sad those days are over here.
