What does that mean? Well, you can't leave kids in the car by themselves. Like, if you need to run in to pay for the gas you just pumped, there is no choking hazards near the child, and there is no one in the store, you STILL have to get the baby out, and take them with you. Otherwise you can, literally, be arrested and have your child taken away from you. It isn't hard (and a seasoned parent can get their kids outta a carseat in a minute), but its just terribly inconvienent. Especially if you want to pour yourself a cup of coffee.
That leads to my next point. Learn how to do EVERYTHING one-handed. Picking up things, etc... Want practice? Hold a sack of potatoes in one arm and do stuff. And keep in mind that the sack may be a bit light. It isn't too hard until they learn to squirm. Then its impossible.
In other news, Joey took his first steps friday evening to ME, not to my wife. He says "Mama", he pulled up for her while I was at work, so this is the first thing he did just for me, and I get to hold it over my wife's head for a good 20+ years now
Another thing. If you are planning to have kids, give yourself an idea of when its gonna happen. My wedding aniversary is 4/28, wife's b-day is 5/5, joey's b-day is 5/10, and mothers day is 5/11. I'm going to be poor for the month of may....
