Train Wreck on Horizon

 enable images

So I get that it's helpful to know what's coming up, but please remember that parenting (at any level but especially an infant) is hard and you should let people enjoy where they are instead of bringing up how it's going to get worse. We know it's going to get worse - that's just how life works until we get to glory. Try to focus on how things will get better - help the sleep-deprived parents see the positive rather than the negative. 

L: I'm glad he's sleeping for four-hour stretches at night.
N: Well, just wait till - 
L: NO! I am enjoying this moment - do not draw my attention to the train wreck on the horizon.
