You know what I’m talking about. Here’s why we do it.
1- Baby-talk in public
Well mainly because our kids are too irresistible to us. It’s like an urge to baby talk when things are that cute.
2- Post pictures on social media:
I, honestly, thought I will never ever post a single picture on a social media. All of my friends know that. I thought that since they’re not old enough to decide wether or not they want to publish their picture, I’m not allowed to do it on their behalf. But then the temptation was too important. I posted pictures. I realized that I already post things about my life and well, now they’re my life. It’s as simple as that.
3- Talk about babies, a lot:
We go back to the same idea. Our kids are our lives. Talking about who went out with who isn’t as important for us now.
I’m not even ashamed.
4- Stop going out:
It’s not because I can’t, since I’ve already went with my kids on road trips and hiking trips. It’s because I don’t want to go out without my kids anymore. It’s not fun to party when all you can think about is your kids.
5- Forget the couple:
We actually still haven’t. And hopefully we never will. But before having our twins, we used to take some dating romantic time to ourselves. This year to celebrate our first wedding anniversary we went to the Havre with our twins and changed diapers the whole weekend in a hotel room. We still made efforts for some romantic moments but yes, it was hard.
6- Use weird expressions:
It has the same explanation as baby talking. Cuteness.
7- Talk about baby poop and vomit:
Because it’s not a big deal for us anymore. And we’re extremely concerned about their health and poop and vomit give us signs about their digestion etc. So it’s kind of a big deal!
8- Be overprotective:
They are the most precious people in our lives. Girlfriends are jealous, parents are protective.
9- Get excited about meeting up with other parents:
Mainly because we feel kind of excluded with single-and-ready-to-mingle friends and with other parents we can freely talk about our kids without the guilt.
10- Be proud:
I am proud, for the only reason that I have kids. It’s weird, but I feel like I have the coolest most awesome thing ever and I kind of want to flaunt it all around. #SorryImNotSorry.
