VIA: Universal/Northern Lights
The baby is coming! The baby is coming! And your world is a blur of excitement and joy and harmony! But HOLD UP, what about the other child that already lives in your house? OH YEAH. THAT GUY.
I mean, if you have to watch all those delivery videos then everyone should watch all those delivery videos, right?
Tell him that everyone will have some new responsibilities when the baby arrives and you’ll need him to take over the family finances.
Begin the adjustment process early: Start paying less attention to him right away.
Do they still have those programs where you can shadow doctors in the maternity wards? Have him run along and do one of those.
I dunno, plop him down in the Science section of Barnes and Noble or something?
Teach him to make a pot of coffee worth a damn.
Have him watch that movie where Arnold Schwarzenegger gets pregnant.
Have him watch that movie where Bruce Willis is a talking baby.
Don't tell him it's coming.
