Illustration: Fatherhood

A young couple brought home their first child. The mother was changing the diaper and suggested her husband give it a try. He said, "I'm busy. I'll do the next one." Later in the day it came time to change the diaper again. The mother asked, and again the father declined. "You promised to do the next one," she said. The father replied, "Oh, I didn't mean the next diaper. I meant the next baby."
