ssn587 ,WOW an Elder that finally gave good counsel ! He must have had kids too.
Clambake , we came from a Hall that in our younger days was full of new parents and young couples . Sisters almost made a contest of who could come back to the hall earliest from having a baby ....it was so stupid !
One thing I saw while being a JW was that they use having a new baby as a way to guilt inactive ones back into service . The thinking is now you have this new person to be responsible for ,and of course the fear of the dreaded END should be enforced upon your mind . Don't let them pressure your family .
Enjoy the new bundle of joy ,get your rest and take care .Congratulations !
