Getting out of just about anything you want
Easily the biggest ancillary benefit to having a child is getting out of stuff.Â Â I’m Jewish and this is the first year of my life I didn’t have to go to temple on either Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur.Â If I were religious I would feel bad about this. But since I am not, I was pretty pumped to not have to go.Â Granted this was because my boy is too little and it would have been a mess and I’ll have to go next year, but still, I got a free pass this year.Â Â You get to leave dinners early because the baby is crying.Â There are endless situations you can get out of that you normally couldn’t because of having a baby.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
