I've been warned

Just got a text from my wife:

"I am an emotional nightmare.  Get excited"

Even at her worst she usually isn't bad.  She doesn't hold a candle to the horror we see on tv or hear about through the grapevine.  At least I got a heads up.  I'll know what I am walking into when I get home from work.

  • Haha.  It had already been decided that I would be grilling burgers.  When I got home she was napping and that seemed to right the ship.

  • Bad news guys....

    Those "emotional nightmare" events do not go away post birth.  My mother has never once taken my side when it comes to my wife and I getting into spats.

    Since I am now the sole target of my wife's emotional, hormonal wrath, my mother actually looks out for me more than she ever has in my adult life.

    My wife says a lot of this post birth emotional stress has to do with her becoming a mother, being nervous about that, while losing her identity as a wife only and an independent woman.

    I am guessing none of us guys goes that deep with our emotions when it comes to being new dads....
