The Thought Process of the First-Time Father


Me:  How do you think the baby will know who we are when he’s born?

Chris:  He’s gonna know who I am ’cause I’m gonna catch him.

Me:  Catch him?

Chris:  Yeah, catch him.  When he shoots out.

Me:  We should probably talk a little bit about the delivery process…

    He makes it sound so much more exciting than it actually will be. Oh, to live in the head of a man for a day.

    Chris – WARNING! There very well may be things “shooting out”, but it won’t be the baby, and you won’t want to catch. I say stand aside and let the guys that earn the big bucks do the catching. 🙂

  4. My husband won’t be in the delivery room for the grand finale either. I am going to get a “doula” it is a person who specializes in making your labor easier and helps out when the husband can’t! I think our marriage would struggle if I required Troy to be in there for the final push. Tell Chris to Youtube live birth and then ask him what he think:)

  5. Well, look at it this way…My husband just told me he’s not “catching” anything….he says I’ll be lucky if he’s even in the room 🙂

  6. lol.

    that’s hilarious. that’s something my boyfriend would have thought. only, now that we have a child together, he sorta (only sorta, mind you) knows better.
