I Do All My Learning From The Interweb


I love the internet. A lot. It's one of the few places in the world you can turn to in order to find porn and gardening advice at virtually the same time. But everything the internet has to offer about parenting advice can suck an egg.

Sure, it's helped talk us off a ledge a few times but it's also come really damn close to pushing me off of one too. Ask the wrong question and your child either has polio or gas or whooping cough or tendinitis.

I didn't even think babies could get tendinitis god damn it.

It's hard because you spend the entire pregnancy sick of people giving you advice and then after the baby is born you're looking for it from a few key places (definitely not the cafeteria dude who tells you to hang the baby upside down for 12 minutes a day to ensure they grow tall). And when you don't hear the answer you like or that calms you, you turn to the internet.

And then it doesn't tell you anything.
