Eric just learned that his company offers paid paternity leave. This, naturally, lead to a serious, contemplative discussion about parenthood.

They’ll be a soccer team.
I hate football.
Friend: “If/when you get pregnant one day, who will you tell first– Eric or Facebook?”
Therapist: “So, you and Eric are talking about starting a family soon?”
Me: “Well, I mean, yeah. Not right this moment, but soon. We’re married and we both want kids and I’m not getting any younger, so…”
Therapist: “Yes, you’ve said that. But what about right now makes you feel more ready than when we’ve talked about it in the past?”
Me (thinking): “Well….we came up with a hilarious way to announce it on Facebook.”
Me: “Oh, is that not a sign of readiness?”
Whatever, lady. Like anyone’s ready for this shit.
