  • My wife is having a baby this summer

  • we don't know if..we are having a boy or a g..but we assume the one or the other.

  • but you never know

  • I have two older kids. My kids are in their forties now. One of them is older than I am.

  • So it's been a long time since I took care of baby. Forget almost everything.

  • or at least I forgot almost everything.

  • so to brush up and to get some advice on how to raise a child

  • I went right to the source.

  • I asked a child to help me figure some things out.

  • a six-year-old girl named Aila and

  • well, we had a very enlightening conversation.

  • Aila, how old are you?

  • Six

  • So you've been a kid for a while now.

  • How long?

  • I have no idea.

  • But you were a baby once?

  • yeah everyone is a baby once.

  • that's true

  • What am I hoping for is that you can give me some information and teach me how to be a good dad.

  • Cause my wife is having a baby. Ok?

  • okay..

  • And I just wondering what you think like what to you is a good dad.

  • What does a good dad do.

  • Well, I suggest you start changing the diaper

  • Myself?

  • yeah!

  • yuck... I don't want to do that.

  • Well, you are not gonna really like eat the poop.

  • Yeah I am.

  • No you're not! Yes I am. No you're not.

  • Well,what am I supposed to do with it? Throw it against the wall?

  • You are supposed to wipe the butt!

  • Ewwww.

  • I'm not gonna do that. Who's butt

  • The baby's butt. With the wipe.

  • Oh no..no way the baby doesn't want that.

  • The baby should learn to wipe its own butt.

  • But they don't know how because

  • they don't have a smart brain. They don't?

  • Does baby comes with brain? or do you have to have that put in.

  • They do come with brains. It's just like they don't know better and they're just like squirming around like

  • Are they dumb?

  • heheh no! They are not dumb!

  • Well they can't even wipe themselves. That's doesn't sound very smart to me.

  • So you're gonna have to do it yourself

  • That's what grown ups do.

  • Oh no. I don't want to do that.

  • So first you have to open the diaper. Ahh.

  • and then you're gonna get a wipe then wipe the butt. Hold on.

  • Will you show me how to do that with the baby doll. Will you show me how to do it?

  • Ok but just where's the baby doll.

  • Here's the baby doll. Now is this the right way to hold a baby?

  • Nope.

  • Well how should I do it

  • So you should do it like that. Okay.

  • If they are like one-year-old you can do it like this. Hold it by the butt and like that.

  • That's..ok..so here we go.

  • No! Not like...What I'm holding by the butt.

  • No. no no no no no..

  • Flip it over and hold it like that.

  • Ohhh the other way. Ok ok

  • Now this butt I'm holding by, this is where the poops come out so this I don't want to touch.

  • You're not gonna touch the butt. You're just gonna touch it with wipe.

  • So like your hands are gonna be clean but you are gonna have to wash them

  • Okay. So here we put the baby right here.

  • Yeah and then some..good just diaper on. (Jimmy: the baby has the diaper on)

  • So like you're gonna pull the side then open it up

  • right..eww there's poop.

  • What? It's chocolate!

  • It is?!

  • Yep we just pretend...well but I don't know if it is chocolate

  • You're eating the poop

  • I'm still not sure if it's chocolate or not.

  • Ok just...you're eating the poop.

  • So I should not do that to the real baby.

  • No! Because it's real poop.

  • You don't want to eat poop and get all sick.

  • Right. You are right. Okay

  • Now, now what do I do?

  • So you're gonna get a wipe and then wipe it like that

  • and then you're gonna lift the baby up. Ok, then you gonna wipe this part. With your hand?

  • No! With the wipe

  • Well why don't you using a wipe. I saw you using your hand.

  • Well there's no wipes here.

  • Oh so what do I do if there's..oh look it out wipes just came in

  • Thanks dad!

  • Yeah thanks dad.

  • So you wipe the butt. Oh! I have a good idea. what if there's extra poop

  • You should put it in the baby's hat right?

  • No no no! What?

  • You should put it...it's...so..(Jimmy:sorry..here you go.)

  • Put it in here. Okay.

  • And then we're gonna roll it up and throw it in the trash but where are the trash.

  • Oh here I'll take it.

  • Umm let's see. Oh! I know we will throw it at the wall.

  • No! The trash! The trash. Remember I told you earlier? The trash!

  • But then the trash guy gotta come pick it up and then he doesn't want this.

  • No!

  • It's such a hard thing to figure out.

  • Ma ma mia...

  • Here's this how it gotta go

  • I'm gonna tell my wife Aila taught me how to change the baby when it has a poopy diaper

  • and what you do is you take a diaper off the baby, you get some wipes, you eat the poop

  • then wipe the baby's butt

  • and then you throw it at the garbage man as he drives you by

  • Yes?

  • Yes.

  • I think that's what we do.

  • N O. No!

  • I'm gonna be a very bad parent.

  • AHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  • So were you. hehehe.
