Good Luck With That

Jul 09, 2009

#Family Life

I walked by a glowing extremely pregnant woman. Her friend handed her a bag with some baby booty in it. I chuckled. I couldn’t help myself. I CHUCKLED. They looked up at me and I recovered, smiled, and continued on my way.

In my head I was picturing what the card would say. I chuckled again. It could be any of the following:

Outside: Congrats New Momma! You’re going to spend the next five years trying to get your pre-baby body back!
Inside: Good luck with that.


Outside: Congrats On Your New Bundle! They don’t sleep through the night until they’re teenagers.
Inside: Good luck with that.

Outside: Dear New Daddy! You thought you had Blue Balls in High School?
Inside: HAHAHAHAHA. Good luck with that.


Outside: To the happy new parent: Write down the last day you had sex.
Inside: So you remember it in three years when your brain is sleep deprived. Good luck with that!

Oh, comeon. Add your own! It’s fun!

And only mildly depressing….


  1. Outside ‘remember saying your kid will NEVER eat french fries?’

    Inside ‘good luck with that’

  2. Outside: remember saying you will only feed your baby organic homemade baby food?

    good luck with that.

  3. outside: Now that the little one has arrived, remember when you said you would NEVER turn into your mother.

    inside: Good luck with that.

    **I’ve TOTES turned into my mom and I don’t even have kids yet!**

  4. This should be easy to me since my baby is only a month old.  However, she has slept through the night since 12 days old and I am getting the best sleep in my life. 

    On the other hand, I can not get to an appointment on time anymore…no matter how early I begin to prepare for it.  Nor can I eat, pee, shower, etc. unless she gives me written notice to do so.  She runs the show.

    Outside:  You think you are in charge.
    Inside:  Good luck with that.

  5. My brain is fried and non-creative today but these are cracking me up and “Good luck with that” is soon to be my new catchphrase.

    Thanks for the laugh.

  7. Outside -  Just about the time you start getting a full night’s sleep
    Inside-  You can wait up all night for the little b@stards to get home!

  8. Outside: Remember saying you’d never answer your childs question with ‘because it is/because it does’?

    Inside: *snigger*  Good luck with that.

  9. Outside: you’ll swear that you will never yell at sweet little Johnny or Jane.

    Inside: good luck with that!

    (I should note that I’m now pregnant with my 3rd kid in 4 years.  Go on, you can say it….!)

  10. Try 1m twins and a 2yo. Good luck. (But we are getting pretty good and ignoring all that crying.

  11. So true. So sadly, hysterically true.

    Remember how, when you were pregnant, you thought labor would be the hard part?
    Good luck with that!

  12. It takes until they’re teenagers for them to sleep through the night?

    *dies a little on the inside*

  13. Teenagers only seem as if they are sleeping through the night.  In actuality, they have climbed out their bedroom windows and ar getting drunk at some party.  If you catch them, that means that you are again up all night.
    The will sleep through the day though.  smile
