Have a new baby on the way and same-age neighbors that are sending their last off to college?
Know that you're going to figure it all out and have your ego managed well enough to admit that a little help is worth asking for?
I'm 44 and have my first kid on the way. I couldn't be happier, but I know that my experience will be meaningfully different than that of my friends who spawned in their twenties.
I'm hoping this will become a regular place and space to share wisdom and joys and horror stories without the fear that someone twenty years younger rolls their eyes as if to say "I went through that three years ago."
I've received a question or three about the name of the group, so let's define some terms:
Old: Let's set the bar at 40. Interpret that as you will. 40 at birth, 40 at conception, 40 and you can't believe you've got a two year old.
Dads: Forget about gender, forget about sex, throw binaries out the window. If you identify with the word "Dad" in a way that is meaningful to you, you're in.
Beer: an alcoholic drink made from yeast-fermented malt flavored with hops.
