We're now 6 days into this whole being a parent thing, and Brandy and I have discovered that we inhabit a completely different world than we did a week ago. Some changes we've noticed:
- There are germs everywhere. I guess they were there before, but we didn't bother them and they didn't bother us. Now we wash our hands 4,327 times a day. Not to mention giving out 'germ-fighting' mohawks during bathtime.
- Sleeping and eating are now extremely complicated acts. It used to be that we could sit down and enjoy a nice meal together and go to bed at a decent hour. Now I'm lucky if I only spill part of my macaroni and cheese on my infant daughter at 3am. Of course it doesn't matter how exhausted you look in a picture because everyone is looking at the baby.
- Bodily functions have never been more fun. Gas from the mouth and rear quarters are cheered and celebrated as major accomplishments, and we're always on the lookout for the ever-elusive poo. And gas faces are so much fun.
