The New Normal 07 Apr, 2013

My wife and I had a bouncing baby boy late last year and man, did he arrive like a shrieking banshee from hell. That was four months I hope never to experience again and, thanks to some serious and prolonged lack of REM sleep, I hope soon to forget. Like all new parents, you just dig in and pray for things to slowly get back to normal. However, with the passing of time comes the dawning realisation that this is the new normal. Even though I really liked my previous life, this post isn't a rant about that. It's about some of the things I've discovered about my new one.
