Some (Sort of Bad) Advice for New Fathers

"Baby yoga is basically one step up from cat yoga. Also, babies are incredibly flexible. My biggest fear before becoming a dad was that I’d break baby. But I went over to my friend’s place and he has a seven-month-old and I watched him change some diapers, and I realized, babies are completely bendy. You can wave them around like chicken. But to be totally clear, I am totally fine with baby hatha yoga, but very mixed on ashtanga and iyengar for babies."
Some thoughts on parenting from a new father.

HELP HELP I can't decide whether to make a "why baby yoga can be so irritating" joke or a "my baby yoga seems so smart but I'm worried about my baby yoga" joke. #backchannelpeopleproblems

@DoctorDisaster IF ONLY I WERE FLEXIBLE LIKE A BABY — I COULD DO BOTH

DoctorDisaster sets 'em up and, incidentally, also knocks 'em down.

I suddenly sense 20,000 mothers calling their husbands to just casually ask what he's doing with the baby right now.

I was kicked out of a baby head shaping class. I guess no one thinks penises are funny anymore.

Does Lululemon even make a headband that small?

@hockeymom And tiny yoga pants, and tiny halter tops and itty-bitty mats.
