Diaper changing gets a bad rap. Before you stop reading this post, stay with me for a minute. I'm not suffering from parental sleep deprivation. Yes, sometimes changing diapers requires a hazmat suit, and you would rather pay someone to do it for you, but there are also the other times. Those other times are when you get to spend a few minutes with just you and your baby, focused on each other. It's when time stops, you lock eyes with your child, and the rest of the world falls away. Here are three times when changing your kid's diapers is your favorite part of the day.
1. When you are literally the funniest person alive.
There are those times when it's been a long day and you look down at your child, make an inadvertent funny face, and they think it's the most hilarious thing they've ever seen. So you do it again. Same reaction. Pretty soon it's 20 minutes later and you are still changing the diaper because you both are laughing out loud and don't want the moment to end.
2. When someone actually listens to how your day is going.
Have you ever tried telling your baby everything that has been happening during the day? They sit there, stare at you, and give you a knowing look because they have been there alongside you every step of the way. It's almost as though they can relate. Granted you are speaking completely in baby talk, but you both have connected on a deep level over a seemingly routine diaper change.
3. When your singing is American Idol worthy.
When your kids are older, they are brutally honest about everything from your hair, to your clothes, to your voice. However, when they are babies your singing voice sounds like you just hit #1 on the charts. You change that diaper, sing to your child in that gravely, screechy, yet angelic voice, and they become the president of your fan club. You could sing that same exact verse all day, especially since it is really the only verse you know from that song anyway.
