Parent Picks:

Blake – Zipper Pajamas

Erik – Educate yourself as much as you can about newborns if you don’t have kids
Jay – The Pelican Bib
Mary – Go visit Lunchbox Dad’s website.  He’s kinda awesome.

The Questions:

1. “Are you getting much sleep?”

2. “Let me know if I can do anything for you.”

3. “How is your wife doing?”

4. “Is the baby sleeping through the night yet?”

5. “I just got a puppy, so now I know what having a baby is like.”

6. Usually said by a stranger in a store when the baby is screaming and you are just trying to make it through your list and keep your sanity: “You know your baby is probably tired/hungry/has a dirty diaper/etc.” 

7. “When are you going to bring the baby over?”

8. “When are you having the next one?”

9. “Is having a baby worth all you give up for it?”
