June 15, 1986 | RUSTY KENNEDY, Rusty Kennedy is the executive director of the Orange County Human Relations Commission--and a new father.

She enjoyed having her diapers changed so much that I never thought of it as a chore, it seemed more like a joint project that brought us closer together. Her anxious fussing that signaled her nap time was easily distinguished from her frantic fussing when she was hungry. I learned quickly that recognizing these little things was less a result of the gender of the parent than a product of hours spent together.
