I was at a parents group the other day and I can't remember how the conversation started, but a dad with a 2 month old bub stated that their baby would be fitting into their lifestyle/ schedule, not the other way round.
What I said was: 'really? that's nice'
What I thought was: 'you poor unsuspecting fool, wait until you try to go and have a meal at your local pub and you have to scoff down your dinner while your partner walks your 12 month old around outside because he refuses to sit in a highchair for more than five minutes, then you hightail it out of there before the baby has a complete meltdown'
And yes, my thoughts were based directly on personal experience!
So I'm curious, what were your expectations of how life would be when your first bub arrived? Were you able to carry on life relatively unchanged or did they turn you life upside down?
