The Unimagined

Don't be surprised when your first child puts you in all kinds of situations you never thought possible before he or she came along. Just two:

  • It's not inconceivable that your toddler will have his or her very own hair care products. Or that, stranger still, you'll find yourself converting to them for efficiency's sake.
  • It's not inconceivable that when your mother-in-law — who routinely asks such questions — inquires whether this (this being motherhood) makes you feel complete, without batting a dark-circled eyelash you'll respond it mostly makes you tired all the time.
