My friend Kevin Haggerty is enjoying the bliss of being a new father, so I wrote a guest post for him about how to prepare for life with a baby.

So Kevin, your wife is with child. That’s just the best. It’s great. Being a parent is the best thing you’ll ever do and you’ll do that thing after your kid is six months old where you say, “What did we do before they were born?”
And it’s not a sarcastic thing. You literally won’t know because of sleep deprivation, worry, concern and the rhythmically stupefying music attached to children’s programming. All of those things conspire together to melt your brain. If it’s working at 80% now, it will be working at 45% after the birth BEST CASE SCENARIO.
You’ll answer questions like, “Do you want salt or pepper?” and you’ll say strange things like, “Genghis Khan” or something. It’s a strange time. It’s great, but it’s strange.
