Say hello to Lachlan Jr*.
Once I’ve had more than three hours sleep — maybe check back on me in 18 years? — I’m sure I’ll process the whole birthing experience and write something witty, moving and insightful.
But for now, here are two brief but unrelated thoughts from our first ten days of parenthood:
- Tiredness and fatigue are two completely different things — though they’re quite lovely when combined!
- All the boy does is eat, sleep and break wind, which, if nothing else, is a comforting reminder that my genes have been successfully passed on to the next generation.
Please include your advice on how to get a good night’s sleep in the comments below.
*Not his real name.
