Ever since Beyonce birthed the gorgeous, majestic child that goes by the name of Blue Ivy, the haters have been out there in droves, hating hard. Be it because she and husband Jay-Z built an entire wing for themselves at Lenox Hill (okay, that was kind of ridiculous); because she's no longer breastfeeding; or because she says both she and her hubby enjoy changing Blue's diapers, they're hating.
People posted an article on an interview Beyonce did with Anderson Cooper recently; and they reprinted a quote from her, which said: "Actually, [Jay-Z] is very good. We both [change diapers]. I love changing diapers, I love it. I love every moment of it, it’s so beautiful. I love it all.” And the comments? Dammnn. Apparently, nobody thinks Bey or Jay changes their child's poopie diapers -- and if they do, neither likes it.
I love my daughter more than anything, but I'm certainly not one to be all, "Every moment is so, so beautiful. I cherish every second. I've actually bottled her breath and bring it with me to work each day just so I can manage." In the beginning when she was waking up all the time in the middle of the night? Not fun. I mean, it was sweet, cuddling with her and all, but I wouldn't have hated, you know, sleeping. However, when people say they like changing their babies diapers -- yes, even celebrities -- I tend to believe it. Because, well, it is kind of nice.
I'm not talking about explosive diarrhea here or anything -- yes, that can get dicey -- but I've never seen much of a big deal with changing diapies. The way I see it, it's a sign your baby's getting the nourishment they need/aren't dehydrated; and it's sort of a time to "play" with your little one. Don't most babies coo and smile when they're up on their changing table, closer to eye-level with you?
I fully believe that Beyonce (and Jay-Z) change Blue Ivy's diapers -- and enjoy it. Maybe they aren't the ones to do it every single time, but is it that hard to buy that some of the time, they do? It really doesn't take very long. If Bey would have said something like: "Oh, I just love running late and trying to rush out of the house with Blue Ivy with no help at all," I would have rolled my eyes. But diaper changing? Come on.
Do you think Beyonce likes changing Blue's diapers? Do you like changing your babe's diapers?
