Comment of the Week

“It’s your last time really alone (until baby moves out of the house) so enjoy these moments with your wife. Your days are about to get a lot busier and noisier. You won’t have time to yourself in the same way. Your priorities are about to shift to a new human so get as much of the “you time” banked now as you can. So watch all the movies, and read all the books on your list, take baths together, go for hikes, do a road trip, and anything else you alone love and that the two of you enjoy together. Build on the strength of your marriage. Create a haven for the 2 of you at home, go on dates when the baby is old enough for a sitter, etc.

I’m 53 and my youngest is 23 and all of our 4 kids live far away at the moment. My regrets are the moments I might have missed when the kids were around and I was busy or working or whatever. Try to really be there as much as you emotionally can for the magic of kids that happens in the mundane moments.”

-Well said, Julian. Really, the whole comment section is a treasure trove of parenting advice.
