Tricks, TV, and Holding Hands – Steve’s Daddy Tips (4-17-19)
Hi, I’m Steve and I’m a new Dad who has learned a lot of things over the last several months and I want to pass along some knowledge to you!
Each week I will be giving you some new tips for first-time parents and one spectacular Dad joke! So let's get to the tips!
- Today’s first daddy tip is how to have a little fun friends who are expecting their first child. If you want to mess with them a little, when you are giving them advice, tell them that they really need to get a product that doesn’t actually exist. As an example, we told one of our friends recently that she needs to get a boob stretcher for when she breastfeeds because it will make the milk flow better. She said she never heard of that and thanked us for the advice. OK, boob stretchers don’t exist and yes, we did let her know we were joking, but the look on her face was priceless as she googled around trying to figure out what it was.
- And the next daddy tip is to get your little one used to holding hands as soon as possible. Now that Charlotte is walking and we are going out with her a lot more, we want to hold her hand but she wants nothing to do with it! So, it’s quite the process trying to get her to do it now, but if we would have started getting her used to it earlier maybe she’d be more cooperative. So my advice is to start holding their hands as soon as they start walking so they are comfortable with it.
- The final daddy tip is to get all of your binge-watching of adult-themed shows done sooner than later! Your little one is quickly growing up and will soon begin to understand everything they are seeing on TV and that means no more naughty shows! Your life will soon be consumed by Sesame Street, Spongebob, and Peppa Pig, so take advantage of the last few weeks or months you have left to watch South Park, Bob’s Burgers, or Game of Thrones because you won’t be able to watch those shows while your little one is awake much longer.
And now it’s time for an awesome dad joke!
