New Dads Are Cool Dads

I love talking to new Dads.

To see their eyes light up when they talk about the baby is like watching a flower bloom. They are so full of pride and embrace their new role with ease. However, because this is all new and babies come without instructions; learning the ropes can be full of humor. Here are some of my favorite things from the mouths of new dads.

You Know You’re A New Dad When….

  • You ask your wife what a nipple brush is.
  • You want to know what the breast pump feels like, so you try it on.
  • You go to the grocery store to get milk and come home with everything but the milk.
  • You tell Grandma and Grandma they can come over whenever they want without asking your wife…Oops.
  • When the baby cries in the middle of the night, you don’t hear a thing.
  • You agree to take the baby night shift, but don’t tell you’re wife you’re a little nervous.
  • You get excited when the baby lets out a loud burp.
  • You wear gloves and start to gag when you change the baby’s poopy diaper.
  • You don’t cover your baby’s privates when changing his diaper and he pees on your face.
  • You remember all the words to the nursery rhymes your mother used to sing to you and sing them to your baby.
  • You get cranky because your wife isn’t giving you enough attention.
  • And lastly, you can’t stop looking at your wife and baby without getting the biggest grin you’ve ever had.
