I was talking to an extremely laid back, awesome co-worker with a 1 year old about what it's going to be like with a kiddo in the house. I know that there's nothing in the world that can prepare me for the joy and destruction we are about to experience so I have no expectations whatsoever. When I relayed this sentiment to Co-Worker she said:
"Yeah having a kid is great. You laugh a lot, but not at what you would think is funny before having a kid. Like, projectile poop is really funny. Especially when it hits the wall and none makes it on the carpet. Pretty amazing stuff, the poop. But really, it's like living with a really cute crack-head. They depend on you for everything, eat all your food, take all your money, destroy your house, cannot communicate coherently, test your last nerve, and won't get a job"
I waited for more, like "but its all sunshine and rainbows and totally worth it magicalness" but she just smiled, sipped her coffee and sighed.
She's my new favorite at work.
