Diapers. Diaper chaninges and ‘wipey’s’ are going to be a big part of your life. If you have already have more than one child – – skip to the bottom.. If not stay here.

See having a new baby isnt like having a cat – – because these things cannot fend for themselves until they can fully start walking and eventually talking (two years in or so). 

When you have of these new things – – its essentially like having two fulltime jobs. You see you need to understand your wife/girlfriend/partner essentially duplicated here self (a version of you two) and that takes a tole on a human body (they do say women are stronger for  reason). 

During this time the pregnany women will be taking care of herself and the new baby – – while you’re responsible for everytghing else. If you can keep up things run smoothly if not you might need help. These times will try your patients and its a exciting road ahead – since again you are MAKING and RAISING a HUMAN BEING.

Its not a stroll in the park (yet) by any means but once you overcome the hurdle and jarring nature of making one you’ll know what its like to do so. As they say – if it was easy everyone would be doing it (many do not).

A few pointers from a father of now soon to be FOUR!:

  1. Be Patient
  2. Think long term.
  3. Know that this is FOREVER.. but gets easier
  4. Just roll with it.
