Our Second Blessed Event Is Gonna Kick My Ass

by doodaddy on June 27, 2008

I posted over at GNM today about our forthcoming baby, and what that means to me as a stay-at-home dad:

Working Mom and I are expecting our second baby girl in November! By New Year’s Eve, I’ll be a stay-at-home dad to two girls under 3.

I’m so screwed.

I feel completely competent as a stay-at-home parent, sometimes. (Some rare and brief times, but some times all the same.) Last Wednesday, for example, I was lifting a tribe of toddlers, my two-year old Boobaby included, up to the playground high bar intended for teenagers, then letting them fall and catching them just before they landed in a heap of broken legs and collarbones. Scream, giggle, repeat. And — no injuries! After two years, I told myself, I’ve got this dad thing down

It gets bad from there. To read the rest of the post at GNM Parents, click here!

Congrats on another girl!

You will be just fine – Mine are 3.5 and 1.5 now and I’m so over that tearing your hair out stage lol! It’s all good :)

Ooooh… I can hardly wait.

Of course, that means you’ll have two teenagers for 7 years or something. Ha!

But then, so will I. Ach!

You will be fine – after the brief adjustment of realizing that there is no more “you time” to get things done!!!!
So excited for you! Hope mom is feeling great!
