Attending A Baby Shower
Here you go for the weekend: a humorous essay by author Neal Pollack about a "couple's shower". My favorite reflection on fatherhood by Mr. Pollack is -
If you can get past the initial infant-as-vegetable stage, suddenly fatherhood becomes a permanent role-play in which you are either the monster or the monster's victim. Sometimes you are also a bear or a lion or a dinosaur, but the principle of the chase remains the same. If, like me, you have no actual skills to teach your children other than ranting at the news, you can at least come up with new ways to scare the hell out of them.
