comparatively speaking


Looking after a baby is much like working in the Entertainment Industry. You are tired all the time, you are constantly trying to please someone else who doesn't explain adequately what they want and screams when you don't deliver, there are long hours, patchy sleep, randomly spaced meals, people being sick at odd hours of the night and some of the time ear defenders would be helpful. You just don't have anyone grown-up to share any of it with.

  1. You could easily change the word "baby" for the word "teenager" without losing any of the accuracy of this piece.

    And you have us, babe, if you need us.

  3. ROFL @ Steg.
    This is it until they are 25, especially the males.
    Too soon comes the point when they are three or four years old and you realise they are the only people you talk to, so that you've become monosyllabic like some toddlers' TV presenter, even when you come across real grown-ups.
    Its wonderful, isn't it?

  5. Good analogy. Nice to see your sense of humour is still intact.

  6. The depressing thing is that you don't have the entertainment industry up-sides. The overwhelming majority of the kit is extremely unimpressive, drug abuse is frowned upon, there are no freebies and nothing can be solved with gaffer tape.

  10. I second star - a great analogy.

    As for the bit about this consistent for males until the age of 25 my dad did once comment he only started liking me following my teenage years at the age of 25!
