I'm Smart (note the capital "S")

One thing I think a lot of people don’t realize is that in order to be a good parent you have to be smart. When your baby cries, you have to be smart enough to realize she hasn’t eaten in four hours. If she cries more you have to realize you haven’t changed her diaper in two or three days. And the thing with changing diapers is you have to be smart about it. A lesser parent would have been pooped or peed on more than the 5 times I have. If your baby cries more you have to be smart enough to realize they want to be held.

Being a good dad basically takes a genius. Luckily for Kenslee I’m the smartest person she knows. Except for her mom. And probably the doctor that delivered her. And most of the nurses. And probably all four of her grandparents. And just about all of her aunts and uncles. But, yeah, my daughter is lucky I’m one of the smartest people she knows.

She is very lucky. Good thing she's not a link—your's is broken.

it works for me. It's not a site, its a sound clip.

Tim said...

firefox opens it. In IE I had to right click and save before listening.

TinaPoPo said...

Only five times, Tim? I'd dust off that tuxedo, you're well on your way to being nominated for a MacArthur Grant. What will you do with the money?

Tim said...

probably buy an ipod.

HappyKap said...

I don't think I could ever be that smart. Glad there's you and Titso to further the species. :-)

Tim:
Is that clip from Death of a Salesman or The Waterfront or something? That 70's show? Curious.

You're a GENIUS I say.

Tim said...

hk - yep, it takes a specail kind of smart.

vof - it's from the Godfather 2.

I know it's audio. I'm running Firefox on a mac. When I click it all I get is this message:

Error 403: ACCESS IS PROHIBITED

I am sorry but remotely linking to ,pdf, .tar, .zip, .gz, image and sound files on this server is prohibited. Please browse for the file yourself by visiting the site that is being linked to.

I got that a few times too. I don't understand.

If you're really desperate to hear it, it's the "stepped over" clip here

awesome. Thanks for accomodating me.

Tim:
I hope you and Titso are going to have a kid every nine months until Titso hits MENTOS-paws because you really shouldn't be denying the planet the children created from your super-dooper superior DNA.

TinaPoPo said...

Seriously. It's like a SUPER RACE.

By the way, I got the same error message as Pixie the first couple times.

And that'll be one hell of an iPod. What will you do with the other $499,700.00?

Tim said...

vof - Titso is 3 weeks and 3 days pregnan now, but we're waiting until she's 4 weeks along to announce it.

tpp - probably buy ringtones.

I have been peed on more than that, which is just a testament to your vastly superior intellect. My daughter (Addison) used to get up a lot in the middle of the night. While I sleepily changed her diaper, she'd send forth a little golden fountain of pee. They say girls can't project, but I got pee on my shirt once. Also soaked a lot of PJ's. Just wait until you accidentally touch the poo while changing the diaper. It's great!

Beebers said...

mmm, yummy. all this talk of poo & pee is making me ready to mount my husband and make me a baby. not.

i can't believe i just said "not." tim, you are so lucky that you got that in your comments.

fuzzymuffin said...

Beebers, is he not lucky that you said "mount my husband" or do you say that all the time?!

Funqi said...

lol - Tim is so smart S-M-R-T Tim is so smart.

Geeezz you and Britney Spears are in running for greatest parent? No? Well at least dont drop her and you shall win. Ok you can drop her but has to be less than 3 times, or you will tie.
