Yes! It’s like a Never Sleep Again Shirt of saying we made a mistake! And it’s so weird, coming from other parents. Like I can understand the occasional comment from childless friends, and when they say anything like that I just shrug and say “eh, yeah but we’re stoked to have a kid.” But I don’t know why fellow parents would want to tear down expectant parents. As if we’re not already full of our own fears and anxieties.
Best Never Sleep Again Shirt
I think Never Sleep Again Shirt has to do with the amount of parents who either had kids too young (too young in their own lives, not saying everyone has to wait until their 30’s like i did.) Were pressured into having children, or accidentally got pregnant. They feel as if their lives were cut short and hate themselves for it, and maybe resent their children a bit…so they want to have someone commiserate with them so they don’t feel so awful and guilty.
My favorite was at our (joint) baby shower when everyone told my husband he’d be changing poop diapers for the next few years and he just answered, “Ok? we wanted this baby. Babies poop.”
