Two Week Update – Holy Crap

Two weeks down.  Two blurred, sleepy, fussy weeks. And I wouldn’t change a thing. So…babies are a lot of work.  I’m fully aware that we were told that for the past 9 months, but I’m not entirely sure there is any advice that can be given that can truly prepare you for having a baby. […]

Seriously…why DON’T they tell you these things?!

You know the one thing I never thought I’d say, writing this blog? “I should have listened to my wife.” Throughout the majority of MOMFC’s pregnancy, my inner-cheapskate really become one with itself when it came to buying stuff for this kid.  Did we really need another box of diapers?  Is he really going to poop […]
