In my house, Alec and I challenge each other to come up with one “outside” topic to discuss over dinner. This could be world news or neighborhood gossip, but it cannot be about the contents of diapers.
If you’re really up for the challenge, find THREE topics to bring to dinner… if you’re hanging out with friends for the weekend, you may each need FIVE. Try to remember that when people want to know how life with baby is, most people want to hear a one word reply and not a one hour reply.
You’re on the internets already, so go find something interesting. Good luck!
