Jason and I often like to talk about how clueless we are when it comes to parenting. One of my favorite early conversations with Jason about our baby naivete was when we were talking about being parents and he said, "I'm just not sure what types of creams to use!"
Jason works in IT and is a pretty pragmatic, logical dude. During another good discussion recently, we were talking about how it's going to be hard to figure out what exactly Hannah needs or wants since her only early indication of needing or wanting anything will be crying, which all pretty much sounds the same. Jason had a simple solution to this.
"We'll just troubleshoot the baby."
I guess what he meant was that, just like in his industry, we'll try out an idea or several until something works. Or, as he says often, we can "check the Googles" for an answer. I like how easy this seems. Like Hannah has a little helpdesk somewhere that we can dial for assistance. Ah, that would be nice.
