I know it can be hard to get the baby squirrel out of the diaper.
It’s like the most embarrassing thing you can imagine, and even though you might have a cute baby squirrel in your bag, it’s hard to take it back out.
When I was a kid, I would always try to put it in the diaper for one reason or another.
I would put it down, then put it on my knees, and I would try to hold it with my hands.
The baby squirrel would be like, “No, Mommy.
I can’t do that.
I don’t want to put that in the poopy bag.”
And I’d cry.
I think that’s what led to my mother, who is Jewish, and my father to give me the first baby squirrel.
And when I saw the babies, I thought, That’s adorable.
But when I got older, it became harder and harder.
At that point, I decided that I would rather see them grow up and see the world, than to have them poop out in the trash.
I was very lucky that my mom would bring them to me, because my mom was a nurse and I was the only one in the house.
And that’s why my mom took care of them.
Now that I have children, I’m looking forward to my children being able to poop out, too.
So I would really love to see more kids like me having babies.
And I hope that my children grow up to become successful professionals.
I’ve got two daughters, and one of them is going to become a lawyer.
And she’s got an MBA.
So if she’s lucky, she’ll be the first Jewish girl to get a lawyer job.
And so I would love for her to become one of those first Jewish attorneys, too, because I think she’s going to make a big difference.
And if I have to raise two daughters in the same house, I’d like to have two of them as well.
I know that’s going too far, but I’m not going to put them in the environment where they’ll have to do this.
I want them to grow up in a family where they will do what they love, not just what they have to.
I hope my children will be like my mother.
I’m going to try to do everything I can to help them succeed in this world.
I really do.
And they’re my babies.
You know, the babies are my family, and if I can help them become successful people, I feel like they’re all of a piece, not a single one of us is the same.
[Applause] So I’m very grateful that my family helped me to become what I am today. Thank you.
