Babies are cute. That is true.
Except when they scream and don’t sleep at 3am. They’re not cute at all, then. Having a baby will cause you to lose the ability to speak. And you will say strange things. Like when someone asks you ‘do you have 3 boys or girls’, you’ll reply ‘girls’. And look like a weirdo when you have to say. ‘No I don’t, I have boys. I don’t know where that came from!’
Also babies make you look like this.
And, when your baby-daddy goes to the dentist at 8.30 he’ll say things like: ‘do you think they will even let me in, or do I look too much like death?’ And you’re not sure, really, because your eyes can’t focus properly to know if the grayish pallor of his skin is real or imagined.
And when you have babies, they grow up. And they still spend all night howling and crying (see exhibit A in the green pajamas). Miraculously, though, they look a lot better than you. And can even play cars with their older brother.
