I can't stop laughing at this!

Being a parent is a lot of work, especially if you’ve never done it before. I think it’s fair to say that no one is quite prepared for what the experience will bring until it happens. It’s not bad a thing; we all need practice to become pros— like Jamie Morse, who definitely needed practice when it came to changing his daughter’s diapers!

In a roughly 3-minute video uploaded to YouTube by Morse in 2015, viewers witness his hilarious reactions to your average, everyday diaper-change. He begins by laying his daughter on the floor.

“Alright, let’s do this. You ready? I’m gonna change your bum,” he tells the baby.

As Morse begins, he takes a quick peek into the diaper to see what he’s getting into. From the get-go, he is immediately distressed.

You hear him gasping as he tries to hold his breath and keep his lunch down, wiping his daughter’s behind with a trail of never-ending baby wipes.

“We have the best fun,” Morse assures the baby, still heaving and retching.

By the end of the 3-minute clip, Morse has successfully managed to change his daughter, who, throughout the video, has remained seemingly oblivious to his plight.

“Let’s try to keep this one clean ’till Mum gets home, yeah?”

Although Morse’s reactions make it hard not to laugh, I’ve got to give today’s generation of fathers a genuine round of applause.

According to research conducted by the National Center of Health Statistics (via Fox News Health), 9 out of 10 dads change diapers while most report being hands-on parents.

One stay-at home, Robert Luftus of Yonkers, New York, quit his 6-figure job to stay at home and take care of his two young children while his wife worked full-time. “Times have changed,” he tells Fox News Health. “We’re trying to rethink our priorities and family seems to be the No. 1 priority whereas in the past maybe people were more focused on career.”

This survey supports “volumes” of research showing the American family has experienced quite a few changes since the baby boom era where, universally, men were the breadwinners and women were the stay-at-home moms. When these gender roles shifted, so did the idea that women were the only gender that could excel in nurturing and raising a child.

During his interview with Fox News Health, Loftus, the stay-at-home dad, said it best: “I’m doing the most important job in the world.”
