After reading this list of Top 10 Things Not to Say to New Mothers, I’ve come to the conclusion that either I’m a terrible father, most new mothers are a lot more sensitive than my wife, or my wife is extremely tolerant. Probably a bit of each. Actually, most of the list doesn’t resonate with me. Still, when Violet was born, I did get some flack from a woman completely unknown to me for writing “Apparently most women aren’t able to recover as quickly as my amazing Vietnamese cupcake” … I did what any sane person would do: deleted the email. If someone is gonna chew me out for the ridiculous amounts of pride, I’m sure responding to their email won’t be effective. So there’s that. And I love “barefoot and pregnant” jokes. I guess I’m just sick.
