For an article for a national parenting magazine (SO I CAN GET PAID AND FEED MY CHILDREN, OKAY?) I am looking for dads who are willing to tell me the things they were (or are) afraid to tell their wives right after she had a baby. (You can use a pseudonym! I won’t tell her it was you, I promise!) It can be something that happened long ago, so “old dads” can weigh in, too.

Think along the lines of “I’m scared to be alone with the baby” or “I’m jealous of all the attention that baby gets” or “I NEED SEX SOON.” Don’t be shy, guys! I need your help. Consider it like making a deposit in the karma bank.

You’re the BEST. I mean it.
