You'll be amazed what you get used to. My first biological children were twins 6 weeks premature. Feedings every three hours 24hrs a day. The first 5 months are only recalled in video and pictures. Our brains shut down. You'll become a semi pro diaper changer and baby swaddler in no time.
Technically, I have a goddaughter. I say technically because I've lost touch with her momma and daddy since I got out of the navy.
I used to change Becca's diapers all the time. I've been puked on and pissed on but not yet shit on (though I hear it's great ).
I'm not sweating the diaper changes, or not getting any sleep, or staying pissed off all the time. As people who are familiar with my "work" here in the forums, I'm like that all the time anyway.
Nah, the thing I'm worried about is, what if we have a little girl. I didn't have any sisters growing up, so I have NO idea how to treat a little girl. Sure, the diapers, the nightly feedings, I'm not worried about any of that. I'm worried about having a bunch of giggling girls around the house for sleepovers. First periods. Makeup. Boyfriends. You know, shit that I have NO IDEA how to handle.
Everybody has stories about "that chick's dad". I'll be that guy. Cleaning the shotgun when some little bastard comes over for a date. Sharpening swords. Whatever. I can see me doing that, but, whatever. I dunno.
I've been getting conflicting advice, but I think the idea that I'm gonna go with is sealing her in a barrell and feeding her through a knothole until she's thirty.
No good deed goes unpunished...
