I love my "Voivod" sig like few other things, but this is tempting.

Congrats to the new and soon to be moms and dads.

Babby got home yesterday. She's been pooped. We woke up several times to feed her, and now she is eating again. She was a bit tiny when she was born, so go on little babby, eat all you can eat! And sleep! The world is your buffet!

Damn. She's easily the best thing that has happened to me. And to the world, I'm sure.

How do I get this little fucker to stop swearing so much. God damn. Is it just a phase and I shouldn't worry about it?

What if it's not a phase and you still shouldn't worry about it.

Yeah, that's an option. I don't know that I have that big a problem with him swearing except when it's in an inappropriate venue (I feel the same for adults). A two year old doesn't know that it may not be a good idea to blurt out "fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck . . ." in a crowded restaurant. Knowing that is what we're trying to teach him. Ultimately, we need to curb our own profanity if we expect him to get a handle on it. Otherwise, he's a really polite kid (yes please, thank you, no thanks, etc. - I guess we're pretty old-fashioned parents). Thanks for the input.

Yeah, I'm mostly joking, I totally understand. Our five year old is now at the place where butts and poop are the funniest things in the world. He's not wrong, but getting him to understand that it's less funny to his teacher is a challenge.

welp, looks like i'll be joining the dadness club :) still early days (7 weeks) but hopefully it'll turn out well.

the gf is pretty set on a private clinic, after a few bad news stories with public maternities here... thing is, we want a natural birth, and these clinics tend to skew towards C-sections. Does anyone have advice on how not to get bamboozled into switching to a C-section? this BBC doco on Brazil got me paranoid.

also.. i seem to remember a few years ago someone (FMtmidgett?) recommending the best parenting book, was supposed to be written like a car owner's manual. I've already searched through this thread for book recommendations (found quite a few to check out, cheers!) but don't think i saw that particular one. Anyone know what it was?

Congratulations!

Guessing you mean the Haynes Baby Manual? https://haynes.com/en-gb/baby-manual

All the best to your lady. My wife went all natural and did it without any drugs in a pool. We just made it clear what we wanted from the beginning but to be honest in Wales they preferred it like that, as natural as possible. Sorry can't really offer any good advice on that, sure someone else can chime in though.

Congratulations!

I'll bet it's the Hayne's book. This one is pretty good too. It's one of about a half dozen that we used:

https://www.amazon.com/Baby-Owners-Manu ... 1594745978

We did a home birth with a mid-wife. It was great. It was sort of a package deal that included tons of pre-birth visits (they even drove two hours to our house) and many post-birth visits. After the delivery, they, the mid-wife and her assistants, made us soup and served it to us in bed. They also are set up to act as agents to the parents if you do end up at a hospital. Part of the benefit of a home birth is that being in a comfortable, familiar environment really reduces stress for the mom, and the dad.

Cute kid. Please post some video. Little kids swearing are hilarious.

Mine are 12 and 13. Middle schoolers swearing are fucking infuriating.

that looks like it, thanks Model Citizen & rgauss!

midwifing isn't legal here, unfortunately :? there are some off-the-grid midwives apparently, but they can't come with you to the hospital in case something happens, so we'd rather stay out of that...

Congratulations Prowler! Having a kid is the bee's knees, apparently!

I guess most of the natural births are done with mid-wives in Finland. They have a doctor on call all the time, as well as the surgical team if they have to perform a C-section. C-section is always plan B or plan C here. I'm not sure if you can get C-section without some medical condition.

the best is when you're no longer a "new parent"

i do laugh because of my upbringing having to raise so many kids, its my joy to see the inital struggle cause idk, im not rooting for anyone to fil its the opposite, i love how its like omg wtf is this life? and then more babieswhich is just more discovery and ease with life experiences and then boom: you know who you are and its beautiful

Yesterday morning I was carrying my son into daycare on my shoulders (he's 5, probably won't be able to carry him this way much longer) and as we pass some new skyscrapers he started talking about being able to climb high like Spider Man when he's older (I think ten is his target age.)

I said, yes, you can climb higher, but remember, Spider Man isn't real, and if you climbed that high it would be dangerous. He took a minute, in deep thought, then...

"someday when I'm a ninja"... Someday. When I'm a ninja. Incredible. Salut, the finger genius!

(And salut, other PRF parents! Sometimes this thread is sometimes my only hope that our future might not be irrevocably fucked!)

My 2 year old daughter has already gotten her 5th cold from daycare since September, and she has passed them all along to my wife and I. They've been dovetailing into each other. Unbelievable. I used to never get sick.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

My 8-year-old daughter is getting really into reading, she digs the 'Wonder' books (now a major motion picture) and also these silly Jedi junior comic/cartoon books.

Any recommendations for non-shitty reading material, including graphic novels or comics, would be appreciated. Extra points for science, history, girl power, and music.
