Sh*t Men Say v2

Stewart was so completely adorable this past weekend in Babies R Us, testing out car seats, strollers, and high chairs. My how things have changed since we first met...
 
He's not super into reading (in fact, he's about halfway through Unbroken, which he started on our honeymoon almost two years ago) but our good friend Clint gave him a book for Christmas that he's actually been peeking through (as far as I can tell)...
 
Here are some of the things that randomly come out of his mouth these days:
 
"I sure hope you don't get that post partum depression thing."
 
"I heard that I have to give up my season tickets and trade them in for a diaper pail... but I'm not gonna."
 
"So... who's going to be in the south end zone during this whole labor situation?"
 
It's after one of these random, out of the blue comments that I realize he's been reading The New Dad's Survival Guide. It's "man-to-man advice for first time fathers," and I'm thinking I should probably check it out here soon, just to make sure it's not giving him the wrong impression about anything! But at least he's learning something, because I'm pretty sure "post partum" and "diaper pail" were not a part of Stew's vocabulary before a few weeks ago...
 
With our niece, Sophia, 2011.
 
He's going to be such a good Daddy!

  2. hey, at least he's being honest and reading about it!

    i remember looking for the book "what to expect when you're expecting" from the bookshelf and when i finally found it, it was in my husband's bag - he was reading it to prep for the baby.

  8. I think it's the sweetest thing that he's reading up! Though, I'm not sure how much of what he reads will end up driving you batty. D has done that with wedding planning. Since he reads up on everything, if something I want doesn't match up with the etiquette he's read about, you can bet I'm going to hear all about it. lol.

  10. I love that he's reading that book and it's hilarious that he's literally quoting stuff out of it. Tell him to get prepared for the eating of the placenta because you've now decided you are into Scientology :)
