Being first time parents to be, we’ve literally been inundated with advice, hints and tips from both experienced and brand new parents. Everyone has an opinion, a way of doing something and a list of stuff that they could not have done without.
Don’t get me wrong, we welcome the advice. Well, most of it. There’s only so many times you can be told “you have no idea” with that look of despair in their eye. Or is that the look of someone who hasn’t slept more than 3 hours at a time for the past 6 months? I mean, no shit! Right? You mean to tell me that, us, with our lazy weekend mornings, our impromptu weekends away, our 8 hours of sleep a night have no idea what it’s going to be like when we have a baby? That we’re going to be ever so tired. That it’s going to test our relationship like nothing else? That life will never be the same again? Yeah, we get it!
