Ted Mosby is a whiny little 💩

Saw this quote and it hit me like a nail on the head... is this why I procrastinate? At anything?

Yep, what would you do if you were not afraid? Another good quote.

When I was 16 and how I met your mother came out I thought he was the coolest guy living an awesome NYC life. As it turns out, I grew up and realized he’s uncomfortably whiny and has nothing to offer other than some corny advice about love - something he’s never had.

This one is for the moms: my husband and I are trying to conceive and I’m wondering what life will look like once we have a baby. I have a job where I work completely from home/remote, and I’m wondering if I will need childcare services of some kind. Is it possible for me to handle taking care of a baby while working a full-time job from home? Is it crazy to think I can do this myself? I’d like to think, if it’s necessary, I could adjust my work hours and do a little when my husband gets home.
