Dudes can get used to just about anything.
Consider the door that swells in the summer and won’t open quietly unless you pull to the right while opening it. At the start of the summer, it’s a pain in the nether regions. By the time autumn rolls around and the humidity drops enough to reduce the swelling and noise, it’s become just something you do when you open the door.
What seems shocking or horrifying at first, can often become just another everyday thing over time.
Which, when you’re taking care of a baby, can be a really good thing.
Today, over at Charlotte Parent, I’ll be talking a really horrible metaphor for this sort of thing as well as pointing out a few times when it’s a good thing we can become habituated to even the most disgusting things. As usual, I’ll be blogging under our Stay-At-Home Dudes column name.
