Babies come with a number of mind-boggling accessories, including car seat systems that even Houdini could not escape. “Rear-facing”… “anchor attachments”… “SnugRider” (Ed. note: apparently, not a condom) … all new terms to me, which add up to one big life-changing reality check:

Bag of clothes, bag of food, bag of toys, pack and play, portable high chair. Lugging all that shit in and out of my car was manual labor. I crashed as soon as I got home.
