Lying in bed and immediately knowing the hard object that’s poking you in the butt is a toy.
Understanding the reason for your (stay-at-home) partner’s fatigue even though it may seem staying at home is a holiday.
Discovering your honed reflexes is useful for something besides catching food before it hits the ground.
Building your upper body muscles without going to the gym. Babies aren’t featherlight.
Never eating a meal alone as long as Baby’s awake.
Speaking in tongues. Babyese.
Perfecting the acrobatics and finesse needed to use a smartphone or game console pad while holding Baby.
Praising every attempt and accomplishment – clapping hands, first steps, first words, ‘no tears-poo’.
Excuding immeasurable happiness whenever Baby falls asleep. And stays asleep all night.
