My child is due in November, so I guess I'll find out.

I'm looking forward to it, but I wish we'd waited a couple of years.

I think most guys are not that into the idea of being a parent at first, it really is more of a woman's thing, especially since in the beginning its not that great, most guys will end up not having sex with their wife/GF for 6-9 months (i.e., just before and after the pregnancy), you both lose lots of sleep for the first year, the toddler does not do much but eat, poop and sleep the first year, but once the kid gets older and starts walking and talking, they probably warm up to being a parent...

...maybe we should all adopt older toliet-trained kids...

Yeah true, but women just have a better connection with their children, a connection that a man will never understand
