Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

lol yea, i know that much

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

Get rid of some of your dogs man.

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

develop a new social hobby that you can enjoy without having to leave the house. babysitters are expensive. you'll still have plenty of time, during your baby's naps, to work on your 'ped, but even now (and my son's 10) it's hard to justify being away from the family too much for rides and rallies. i started homebrewing when my son was born- all my friends who didn't have kids would come over to my place to brew with me and "sample" the product instead of going out. it allowed me to keep my social life alive without finding new friends.

other than that, i suggest you bank as much time sleeping between now and the due date as you possibly can. you'll need to get ahead of the game.... finish any outstanding home improvement projects before the baby's born. brace yourself for an exciting, but complete life change starting now!

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

start getting the baby's room ready. Good thing you just bought a house.

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

thanks aaron,i guess this means that i will be working on my peds alot more when i'm not at work,

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

we got to wait for dixe to get done w/ her puppies, befor we get the room together.

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

It will be great dude, Now worries you are already home alot you have a good hobby working on your peds, and I will alway's hang with ya

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

take lots of pictures, they grow like weeds! also, I usually give my one and a half year old daughter a rubber mallet to play with when im working on peds, otherwise nuts and bolts turn up missing.

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

Don't sweat it! I've done a year and a half of stay at home dad and it's been great! Aaron's right nap time=wrench time. Also check out baby carriers, some of the wrap style ones are really comfy. I've also saved a lot of money with cloth diapers. You can get really nice ones that Velcro on and are super absorbent, you just chuck 'em in the wash when you're done.

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

yeah, and before you know it (seriously, they do grow like weeds) you'll have an extra set of (useful) hands in the shop. my son absolutely loves wrenching on mopeds. together we broke down a 'ped i was parting out in less than an hour- he was so proud of himself. he's already got plans for turning his chopper bicycle into a moped...even if he's five years from being legal! kids are awesome. they'll make you fall in love with toys and with playing in general all over again (and we all need to play more, seriously). i've probably played with legos as much in the past five years as i did when i was a kid!

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

you should expect a baby.

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

Cloth diapers, bro. Go with the BumGenius 3.0 I am not even kidding.

and don't let him watch Dora the Explorer. That shit teaches kids Spanglish.

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

my wife is spanish

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

hey I'm not against Spanish, I'm against _Spanglish_. Dora may be teaching kids Spanish words, but they're just peppered in mindlessly. If you start a sentence in English, finish it in English. Same for Spanish or French or Mandarin. Teach your kids languages, but teach them the importance of _communication_ too. You don't want your kids to go around rambling incoherently like Ricky Ricardo.

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

Good point

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

What are you hablandoing about? Spanglish is increible. Me parece muy useful. Spanglish is palabras en dos languages, all mezclado together. Que awesome!

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

LOL 'zactly.

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

Tie wraps can be used to attatch baby's car seat to back of ped.

Re: OT:what to expect when your expecting?

expect the best and prepare for the worst.

the following info is from a teenager who has an asshole of a dad.

never choose something over your child... at an early age they preseve it as the activity (work, football, solitare, baseball ect.) is more important.

always pay attention when they talk. nothing pisses me off when i say something and i get a blank ok or oh isnt that nice without even a look at me or the object i am talking about

eat dinner at the table at a certain time.

when they are at sleep overs bang the shit out of wifey

communicate. dont agrue in from of the kid... especially infront of the kids friends.

ok... good luck

hope its a cute girl so i can get her number as soon as she has a cell phone
