New Dad Hysterically Apologizes to "Wine Moms" Because Boy Oh Boy Does He Get It Now

Pull up a glass and welcome to the club, friend!

There are so many things about parenthood that are simply impossible to explain to someone who doesn't have a child — and even if we could explain it, they wouldn't understand it until they're in the thick of it themselves, anyway. Some of these things are positive, like the way that you feel levels of love and joy you didn't even think were possible before. And some of them are about the way sleep deprivation and overstimulation can really leave you drained by bedtime.

For one new dad on TikTok, that thing he didn't understand was the concept of "wine moms," or moms who end their very long day of parenting with a glass of wine (or two) to unwind. He admitted that he used to look down on parents who made that part of the routine, but now, he fully understands. 

He didn't fully understand the struggle before, but he does now — down to the mysterious child-related stains on his clothes by the end of the day, the lack of time to take a proper shower, and even sneaking spoonfuls of baby food just to be able to feed himself. LOL! Dad, we've all been there.

"I didn't mean what I said about y'all," he said. "Drink your wine, eat your baby's fruit snacks, because mental health is important." 

While he's filming, he's trying and failing to make any noise that might make his baby up, which tells us that he definitely gets it now! 

"We're just trying to raise our babies not to be serial killers. It's okay!" he added. 

It's true — that's really our shared goal as parents. Unwind how you have to after bedtime! This job is 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with no breaks, sick days, or vacation days. You'll find zero judgment here.
