It’s hard to type with one hand, but I’m holding about ten pounds of baby boy in my left arm. While I’m sure it’s nothing like what Def Leppard’s drummer goes through each time he takes the stage, it’s still proving to be quite the daunting task.
Learning to do things while holding a baby is one of the many life changes I’ve had to make since my son was born. I’m learning to get by on less sleep. I’m also coming to grips with the fact that I’m going to be subjected to countless TV shows, movies, and music that I’m going to hate.
Fortunately, there are options out there for us parents that don’t want to listen to the Wiggles and Barney. I never really thought about it, because frankly, until about four weeks ago, it just wasn’t the issue for me that it is now.
