What’s your social life like now that you have Baby MPB?
(Innocently asked by friends who do not have children yet).
Me: What social life?! We have a 7pm bedtime which means every night we have to be home by 6:00pm in order to get Baby MPB fed, bathed and properly snuggled. The only exception to that is if we are going out to dinner, then we have to be home by 6:30.
Mr. MPB: Or one of you can go out and the other has to stay home. Or you have to hire a babysitter.
Me: Heck, that’s why Mr. MPB just bought a PlayStation. He’s clearly not a gamer and hasn’t had a new system since the Nintendo game cube came out. It’s just something to do in the evenings.
Mr. MPB: But of course that’s because we have a mostly good sleeper. If the baby isn’t a good sleeper I’ve been told you spend your whole evening just hoping and praying the baby eventually goes to sleep.
Me: Heck, this is the first time we’ve seen you guys in months, and we used to meet up for dinner at least once a month! Clearly we have no social life anymore.
