There should be no reason to complain when you have a new baby. Life is great. Life means something. But it can also be tiring – and therein lies the problem. When something so incredible happens, is there any excuse to moan? And who can you moan to?
If you moan to non-parents they’ll give this answer:
‘You signed up for it. Quit your complaining! Get a dog next time.’
If you moan to another parent they’ll say this:
‘Yeah? And? You think it’s bad now, wait till they can actually walk! And you’d better get your shotgun ready etc.
