lol the gloves are off at my place.. throughout 3 full kitchen garbage bags full of junk food yesterday.. my 3 year old is completely addicted to the carbs/sugar.. literally asks for a fucking bun to eat instead of dinner.. Not forcing him to go full keto, I'm not either at this point (mainly cuz da beer), but going to try to keep only REAL food in the house when possible.

These kids stand no fucking chance against this food industry and our sell out govt.. sugar amounts significantly increased over the last couple decades let alone pinpointing additional specific compounds targeting dat reward system in the brain.

Take all the gear you can - diapers, formula, dry wipes, nipples, swaddle cloths. You will not be able to find dry wipes like the ones at the hospital. Load up.

when we had the twins, the nurses were forcing more stuff on us. with the single, not so much.

also, even if you(wifey) plan to breast feed, take the formula(premixed stuff) they give you, shit is expensive if she does not or stops producing.

also helps for middle of the night feedings when your half asleep. pop on the nipple cap and feed away, no measuring needed.

our hospital, the mom could order 2 meals, but the dad wasn't "allowed to order", nurses told me, when ever you order, order two meals, say both are for her, and you eat one. if you say 1 is for you, they bill you extra.

but i guess that depends on the hospital.

My only add to this thread is to enjoy this time. Yes it’s harder than when you were without kids, but time flies and they grow up so fast.

My oldest daughter is 4, son is 3, and youngest daughter is 6 months.

Just today I met the wife and kiddos for lunch at chick-Fil-a. I sat and just remembered when my 4 and 3 year old were babies. Again, they grew up so fast!

my 2 year old has become heavier than my 3 year old twins twins have her in height though by a good 4 inches. at just over 30lbs each, playing around with them can become a workout.

Maybe Iím not there yet, but fuck the first two months It was a nightmare. Constant anxiety, no sleep, pumping, cleaning bottles (before we bought the racket accessories) eating Trader Joeís frozen meals twice a day. Pure survival mode. IĎll vomit if I eat another pork potsticker. 7-8 months have been really damn enjoyable. Crawling, saying da da, scamming TV time, smiles and developing a full-on personality, even if it is bossy as shit.

The first 2 months is exactly what was said pure survival mode! No sleep, malnourishment and pushed a foot past the end of your limits but somehow you hang on. I was gobbling up those $.99 frozen pot pies 3 or 4 at a time, eating entire frozen pizzas in like 3 minutes and maybe getting 3-4 hours of sleep a night and never in a row. The only thing that kept me going at work was Monster energy drinks and luckily a few rain days where I fell asleep in the truck. Apparently Iím not the only person that thought of playing hooky from work and life and getting a hotel room just so I could sleep. Then we hit the 3 month mark and it settled down and life started getting back to as close to normal as it could get.

Pretty awesome feeling when a family friend thatís known me since I was a fetus takes me aside and tells me that Iím a great father.

Why didnít anyone warn me that daylight savings with an infant is hell? Guess whose schedule is all fuckered up. Total crank-butt, giving me attitude and generally just not having it.

^^^^^THIS
Go drop a paycheck on things that take less than 5 minutes to cook or make at least a weeks worth of food and freeze it. Also make sure itís stuff you can eat with one hand or while moving and foods that donít taste horrible when theyíre cold.

Being a dad gives you the magical ability to do almost anything in the house like a ninja walking on cotton balls while everyone is sleeping.

Being a mom gives them the ability to clomp around the house like a drunk armored rhinoceros with cymbals on their toes.

Yep! My only advice for that is just ignore it. People are fucking dumb and for some reason they feel the need to say anything about everything if they have an opinion on it.

I think these types of conversations are way worse for women. Middle aged hags feel the need to blame everything bad about their body on children, rather than their sedentary lifestyle or shitty diet. My wife's in pretty good shape and would nonstop hear how she'll never look the same, the foot swelling is permanent, kiss that body goodbye, blahblahblah.

Can't wait until she goes back to work looking just like she did before getting pregnant..the hags are going to get upset and bury their faces in to a box of munchkins to feel better
