Changing a bulb is hard. You have to get a ladder and then you reach way out further than what is probably considered safe, and you twist this tiny glass bulb out and then stick a new bulb in but you want to be careful because the lights are turned on so that you can tell if the new bulb works or not, and you don't want to stick a finger or thumb in the socket by accident and kill yourself. It is a process.
Also, I'm afraid of heights.
I wonder if changing diapers is also really hard. It seems like a lot goes into it.
We took a class where you learned all of the things parents need to know. One of the things is how to change a baby's diaper. We are having a girl, so I was reminded several times that I need to wipe front to back. I wouldn't have known that otherwise, so the class was worth the money.
$120 well spent.
There was also a swaddling contest and I got 3rd out of 5 guys, and in the end I held the plastic baby doll upside down like a Blizzard to prove it was a tight swaddle. I was pretty proud of that and to be honest, time doesn't matter in a contest like that and my baby will probably be patient and not care that I wasn't the fastest swaddler out of a group of 5 complete strangers.
I can't imagine that you can screw a kid up by not changing the diaper properly. Over Thanksgiving we visited Nick and Shannon and their baby Lily and as we were there her grandma changed her diaper and forgot to use the little tape tabs to hold the diaper together. So the kid was walking around with a loose diaper under her pants, but she was still drooling and farting like any other infant you have ever met. I don't even think she noticed.
So maybe diapers are a lot like Christmas lights. Just as one bad bulb doesn't shut down the whole strand, one bad diaper change doesn't mess up her whole life. But if every bulb, or diaper change, is broken, you will have serious problems.
