Yesterday, we attended a 3 hour class entitled “Becoming Parents”. We learned some things we didn’t know therefore the class was successful.
At the beginning the instructor took us through an exercise designed to demonstrate what sort of impact a new child would have on our daily routine. We listed the various activities we did on a daily basis, then she added on the tasks a newborn requires for proper care and feeding and invited us to think about what we might have to alter or cut out to make the time work. It was an exercise only intended to foster discussion between partners, and as Jenn and I are already past the obvious discussions (such as this one) I became bored.
I was staring at the whiteboard when I realized it would make a wonderful word cloud, and I imagined what the impact a baby would have on that word cloud. Here’s a typical day in the life of our generic workshop attendee.
Now let’s add a baby.
Sums it up, I think.
