There are a lot of fears involved in preparing to be a parent, I’ve discovered. But the Romgi and I tend to have very different types of fears.
He is afraid our baby will have two heads.
When he first brought this up, I promptly told him what a ridiculous and unlikely thing this was, so he sent me a link to a 1912 New York Times article about a two-headed baby. I figured if the best argument he could come up with was almost a century old, I could dismiss it.
Well, today the Romgi has politely pointed out that recently a two-headed baby was born in Bangladesh. And that it died soon after birth.
Ok, fine. I’ll admit that two-headed babies exist. But I will also vouch for the fact that our baby has only one head!
And, to be fair, here’s my biggest fear (equally ridiculous, I’m sure): the baby won’t like me.
