A guy got on the elevator with me and he was practically grinning from ear to ear. It was just us on the ride up and he blurted, "I just got to see my unborn baby for the first time and it was incredible!"
I congratulated him on his impended fatherhood and he went on and on about how amazing it was to see the heart beat, etc. Now call me jaded but here was what I wanted to tell him:
- Prepare for lots of sleepless nights
- Find a good babysitter now and schedule your date nights a year in advance. And have date nights.
- I'm two years in and the toddler stage is way more exhausting than the infant stage. Just so you have something to look forward to.
Perhaps I'm settling more into the idea of one and done? I'm not sure but either way that parent-to-be glow did not rub off on me. Anything else you would have said inside your head to this guy?
