My non-mom friend, thank god I still have a few of your kind. You recently asked me the pros and cons of having a baby. I do love approaching things practically as you may know and so Is thought it would make perfect sense to actually make a list. You’ve been married for a while after all and a baby should be the natural progression, no? That’s what everyone says anyway.
Like a good mother I could only think of the pros, so here you go.
#1 You can make sweatpants look cool! It’s easy to be en vogue as a mum, you can literally throw on anything you want and know that you will be better dressed than three other moms who barely make it to school on time. Yes 11.30am is not early but try convincing a toddler that bath time is necessary, that you can’t go out without clothes and no strangling the cat will not make him like you…it takes some doing.
#2 You will never eat dinner alone, ever! To a toddler you eating your meal will be the most exciting thing in the day. A time for conversations, questions, play requests and urgent needs will pop up right about then. By the end of it you will forget what you were eating. I say it’s a great way to get back in shape.
#3 You will only eat candy in hiding and boy will yo u do a good job because a toddler on sugar high is the last thing you want to tackle in your already busy day. I got so good at it, that the other day I finished an entire bar of Kit Kat while my daughter was playing in the same room. It teaches you to appreciate the good things in life and also helps you cut down on sugar. See?
#4 You always have a ready excuse when you want to get out of a situation. If you want to NOT accompany your friends to a fun night of bar crawling or just wake up and decide to eat a breakfast buffet because argh who like those, or simply get out to grab a bite at a moment’s notice then having a child is such a perfect alibi, every time. Infact rest assured, soon your friends without kids will even stop inviting you to these boring affairs.
#5 And finally, you will have someone who loves you despite the stained pyjamas, unwashed hair, chipped nails and foul temperament. They may even go so far as to call you the “Best cook in the whole world,” when all you can do is make shapeless rotis or say things like, “Mama you look so beautiful in that dress,” and that just overrides everything else said above.
There is not one good, logical, sane reason to have a baby but when this retarded human instinct kicks in, it changes your life forever in the worst of ways and you couldn’t love it more. Promise.
