Hey everyone, The last thread w/ a similar topic was posted last year -- and has been quite dormant. Just wondering if any of those individuals or others with a similar experience would like to share how they made the transition into parenthood & med school. My wife is pregnant with our first and I'm anxious and thrilled . I'm holding fireside chats with my dad and reading select fatherhood literature to start prepping. I've heard that raising a child can at times be like continuously enduring 1000 MCAT's and making 40's every now and then. Probably the worst analogy ever... so don't quote me. I don't have any specific questions, but I'd like to leave this open to anyone wanting to share tips (studying, childcare, etc) and obstacles (insurance, cost) from birth to school age. I'm hoping that people won't mind sharing. I get tons of unsolicited advice from clerks at stores -- so I figured I'd ask some people who know!
