Gotta Re-Examine The Ol' Lifestyle Now, I Guess!

So it's only been a few days since this whole Baby Blog idea got rolling, but already I'm beginning to realize the huge impact a commitment like this is going to have on my life. How many things are there that I may have to look at now, that may have to be re-examined? Not being in the process of being about to have a baby, wow. It really throws your whole life into perspective. Somebody once used the word "epiphany"...that person was not far wrong.

I mean, even just take your everyday lifestyle things. And you might say, me being the man and all, I don't actually need to cut down on drinking alcohol, or eliminate cigarettes for instance. But maybe I should anyway, you know? I should at least think about it! Right?



Nah, I'm probably fine there. I think I'm good on the alcohol/tobacco front. Firearms, I'm kind of up in the air on. But since the government groups all three together, I'd say I'm probably good on all three.  

But those are just random examples. You could name off just about anything else, too, with equal validity. There's just so much that needs to be re-examined, that I've sort of taken for granted about my life, and almost all of those things are probably going to have to be either looked at or changed.

Most of them, probably I'm leaning toward the "looked at" side of that equation.


  1. Surely there are some breathing exercises you can learn too, to alleviate the pain during your non-labor? I know it's months away yet but one can never too be prepared!

  2. That's a good point. Even though as I said, I'm the guy, still - I should be learning and doing and practicing those all those same breathing exercises right there with you - you, who after all will also not be in labor. So it just makes sense, or at least, it makes just as much sense.

    Man oh man. Not having a baby makes having a baby blog so complicated! I think sometimes, people with baby blogs who are having a baby, maybe they take some things for granted a little bit.

    Anyway, breathing exercises can be very good for you, if done right.
