The wisdom behind your advice in point 10 is not readily a parent, but I'm only kid-ding. Thanks for a fun read.

Very clever - especially from someone who claims to have never been a parent.

Congratulations! I was laughing the whole time I read your article. I love your humor in these parts:
--"Resist punching people who randomly touch your belly."
--"Resist the urge to strangle your husband during labor."
--"Biohazard suits"
--"Time will fly." The repetition is very effective to speed the reader along.
--Your disclaimer is hilarious to me!
--"Study calculus..." I have taught for over 25 years and this might be considered an exaggeration, but the current state of our educational system is that former first grade content is being taught in kindergarten and former high school content is being taught in middle school.

You captured that trend in a very humorous way.

Thanks for taking the time to deal with a sensitive subject in a humorous way.
Your suggestions are good. Experience, they say, is the best teacher; but the Holy Spirit is a better Teacher than experience. You deserved the second place win. Congratulations!
