A man I work with said his pregnant wife asked him what he looked forward to about their soon-to-be-born child. Man said he replied that the thing he loves most about his previous child (2-year old with his ex-wife) is that that daughter gets to go home - he doesn't have to be with her all the time and can send her back to her mother at anytime.
Not exactly sure he should be telling his pregnant, hormonal wife that.
And also sure that they should have discussed this before the new wife was 2 weeks away from delivering.
But at least the mother isn't doing things like put the baby in the washing machine like this mother... that I know of.
