      I probably should have done better with six kids, but I've never really thought about the number of diapers changed. I guess I'm not quite ready to have a baby. Might be a problem. Ha.

      Heh, despite having kids, I drastically underestimated how many diapers I've changed!

      Before we had our first one, my wife and I did quite a bit of research but nothing will prepare you for the real thing. It's a learning experience every day but well worth it.
