12:04

before they mess it up like why don't

12:05

you just have your own son if you w win

12:07

so bad it's not the same and if it's a

12:09

girl everybody who voted for a girl is

12:11

getting pushed in the pool including

12:13

you I aamer your reaction was the camera

12:16

12:19

the camera would not be what would you

12:22

12:26

12:28

to see you into this new season of Life

12:30

as a mom and a dad you guys are going to

12:32

be amazing parents

12:35

did because I've never been a parent

12:37

before I don't have a lot of

12:38

advice I'm just very excited to be an

12:41

uncle I'm very excited to have another

12:43

nephew or niece my advice would be that

12:48

you are really good at influencing

12:50

others to be a light and teach them

12:53

positivity and be a mentor so don't lose

12:56

that keep that up as y all become

12:58

parents to like take that and bring it

13:00

to the next Generation Scott will

13:02

probably be the best dad key you'll be a

13:05

good mom thank you guys so

13:07

much A lot of people don't know this but

13:10

if you use a detergent pods you're

13:11

missing out on half of your wash cycle

13:14

uh actually the first cycle that

13:17

requires a little bit of deter what I

13:19

think this is supposed to be advice on

13:21

parenting oh I got nothing then the

13:23

Simplicity that I give is continuously

13:26

trust in God that's good advice stay in

13:29

your baby's world don't get so in a rush

13:33

as parents with your own agenda that you

13:35

forget how important to get into their

13:37

world and where they are sit with them

13:40

and be interested in what they're

13:41

interested in at every single step of

13:43

the way so that you you're creating

13:46

agency don't forget that's really

13:48
