Daddy Diaries – I Have Charred Nipples
As most of you have heard, I am a first time Dad now. My 3-month-old is the light of my life and I feel like I’m learning the ropes pretty good. I’m gagging less with each dirty diaper, and I’ve learned the difference between a onesie, a sleeper, and a romper after a few insults from my wife. Who knew there was a difference? Well, this morning I had my first “Bad Daddy” experience as I was trying to be a “Good Daddy.” I put the dirty bottles in the dish washer and got it started. I put the nipples and collars on the stove to boil. I went outside to cut the grass. An hour later, my sister-in-law, who was babysitting ran outside with a smoking pot in one hand and the baby in the other. Oops! I forgot something. So, off I go to Babies R Us for more nipples and collars (there’s a corrupt priest joke there somewhere). I will also be stopping by Bed, Bath, and Beyond to see if I can find a new soup pot somewhere in the Beyond! Oh well, I’m sure it won’t be the last mistake I make as a Dad, but I’ll be sure to let you know when I do.
