After they had brought their first baby home from hospital, a young wife suggested to her husband that he try his hand at changing diapers, “I’m busy,’ he said. “I’ll do the next one.’

The next time the baby was wet, she asked if he was now ready to learn how to change diapers. He looked puzzled. “Oh,” he replied finally. “I didn’t mean the next diaper. I meant the next baby!’
