Snacks: You are going to have a lots of them. Much more than what you could have consumed your entire life.
You are transforming into Superman: You are going to fly airplanes, swing your child, dance like crazy, making silly faces, sliding and what not!
You are much more like a punching bag to the baby: Bitten tongue, nose crushes, head butts, and best of the lot – groin kicks: you are going to experience all this and more.
Carry everything, yes everything including the baby: Hold the animals, drinks, food, toys, car keys and the baby. Oh yes, open the door with the free hand. That makes you even closer to being Superman.
