Overview

The Light at the End of the Diaper Pail provides a calm voice of reason, comforting advice, and hilarious truths, including

  • Your body is not the same. In fact, unless major exercise or surgery is undertaken, it will probably never be the same. Have compassion, accept it, and move on.

  • Whatever his schedule is today will not be his schedule tomorrow. Resist the urge to seek consistency.
  • You're right, colic sucks.
  • Forgive yourself for not being perfect.
  • There are lots of baby things that are overrated. The baby swing is not one of them.
  • He loves your singing. Yes, your singing.
  • Do not be alarmed that entire conversations revolve around poop.
  • Smell his sweet little-baby smell. Drink it in. Come back for seconds.
  • Breathe. Repeat.
