What do you do with a baby?

By burkes08 - 10 June 2009 48

OK, so I have no exposure to children and my best friend is now in possession of her first child.

Social occasions for us have always been a couple (or more) beers somewhere or maybe watching a game of footy or playing some pool.

I need some help with what sort of things we can do together in Canberra now that there is a 4 month old baby to think of.

I have no idea about kids and any help would be appreciated.

What’s Your opinion?

I’m pretty sure if Burke thought the kid was an inconvenience, he wouldn’t be posting about what now to do on here.

The thing is, everyone LOVES everyone else’s kids and babies. Let’s face it. We’ll all put up with anything for other peoples’ kids. Shit, noise, boring stories, curbs on our freedoms, anything really. We won’t speed in school zones either, becuase someone else’s kids might be endangered, yep, we all care a LOT about other peoples’ kids. And we are really honest about it too.

Take it on a really long plane flight. Preferably sitting right behind me. Babies love that kind of thing, and so does everyone around them. Try to smuggle some satay skewers on board so we can all enjoy perforating our eardrums with them.

Hell ant, I dont mind lending a hand – I even sort of like the little buggas too – its just the extent to which the conversation descends that drives me crazy.

Perhaps a quick steam-clean. I’d imagine steam-cleaning followed by a 30 min blast from a hair dryer would have you on the way to a very tasty bambino peking. I’ll post a recipe.

I’m having a quiet chuckle, Yapyapyap, at some of the sentiments being expressed here too. The BabyBorg assimilates its people quietly, so they don’t realise what’s happening to them. Everyone else changes, they don’t. Except everyone else apparently has to come and provide babysitting, do a wash, clean the house, reorganise life etc etc for the child-blessed.

And I certainly wouldn’t eat a baby. Ye gods. I doubt one could ever be rendered hygienic enough to eat.

I prefer to render them for an hour or so, then confit them in their own fat. About 90mins at 90C. Allow the little fella to return to room temp and then finish with a quick sear in a vey hot pan – you won’t believe how crisp they get

Hi Burkes08,

I’m a dad of two (aged 7 and 5) and from my experience, its great that your wanting to know hoe to keep your friends engaged with you. After our kids came along my single mates dropped by the way-side which in a way, means they really weren’t mates at all.

What, single blokes being bored shitless listening to stories about first fart, first, shit, colour of shit, colour of spew!!!

Heaven forbid – real mates would still be hanging on every boring detail of the little buggers’ second fart, second, shit, first gurgle, weight this week – “isn’t he daddy’s big fella” – first day at daycare, first day at pre-school………………..
