    (quoting you here because it made more sense to me than in the covid thread.)

    yeah. and i don't know how anyone can be expected to do this on their own, even with the help of nurses. single parents, especially those who start at the very beginning on their own, deserve ALL the awards.

    and also, any parent who refuses to participate in any part of the process of being a parent frankly isn't fit to be a parent. one of the guys i had a major conflict with at my last job, who was so proud of having a son that he named him Ben Jr., literally never tried to change a diaper, and refused to even consider the possibility of doing so. he just expected his girlfriend (who already had a daughter when they got together) to do it. he once literally said "nah, i don't do that shit." like, fuck you, dude. congrats on perpetuation misogyny.

    Our kid is strong enough now that if he doesn't want to sit still, the diaper change mambo is suddenly a two-person job. Don't know how a single parent could even handle that!

    You'd think it gets easier when you transition to underwear, but that's when they really get to kicking.

    My partner and I struck what seemed to be a fair division of labour: she was responsible for input; I was responsible for output.

    Well, the boy passed his written driving test months ago and just passed his actual driving test. Now we just have to wait until he's 16 and he'll be ready to drive on his own.

    my poor insurance. good thing I have that promotion coming up!

    The boy is almost 2 years old already. How the fuck did that happen.
