Baby Blessings

There are obvious joys of being a parent to a young bundle of joy, but there are also things you likely never considered:

The More Obscure Great Things About Having a Newborn in your home:

Homeless people quickly learn not to sift through your trash anymore. All your problems disappear as you come to the realization that there’s no time to deal with them, nor a soul anywhere in the world who cares. Erases all shame from hanging up swiftly in the face of annoying telemarketers. Takes all the wonder out of “What’s for Dinner?”. Nothing. In time you’ll have no clean shirts to worry about getting dirty. No reason to calculate how well you’re making ends meet when you’re absolutely, beyond any shadow of a doubt NOT. Tolerance develops for loud, piercing shrills. No longer is your life run by the clock. Night is day, day is night and you’re not sleeping anyway. Social Obligations no longer obligatory. Baby = Get Out of Anything Free card. Whether it’s Trivial Pursuit, arm wrestling, or guzzling a beer, there’s always someone in the crib down the hall you can beat every single time. I count these blessings every day. Do the same and I suspect you’ll find parenting more rewarding than you’d ever imagined. Because it’s the little things. Isn’t it?
