Tomorrow is May

Today is Monday, the start of a new week. Tomorrow is May, and I know I won’t see the end of May without seeing my new baby. That thought is quite daunting.

Today I’ve been catching up with a colleague at work who’d just had a daughter and has been sharing their thoughts from the first two weeks.

Things I’ve learnt:

  1. Birth plans really should be birth daydreams. You really don’t know / can’t prepare for what’s going to happen on the day.
  2. Getting visitors after the birth is great, but can be overwhelming when you’re knackered and coming to terms with the massive shift in your world.
  3. But mostly, nothing prepares you for how awesome being a Dad is. This part I’m really looking forward to.
  4. Following closely though, the euphoria doesn’t last forever. Give it 4-6 weeks and the sleep deprivation and relentless demands wear down the best of men.
  5. Lastly, be careful what pictures you post online. I have now seen far more of the new mum than I’d usually be comfortable. But it appears as new parents new nudity rules apply.
