Some people think that having a kid slows down your game, but I’m here to scream “BULL.” My kid gives me more opportunities to talk to new people in one outing than the average person gets in an entire day.

Child-led interaction is an awesome way to connect with others, not only because it’s frickin’ cute, but because your kid takes the lead, making you the hip sidekick (#yesplease).

And before you say it, no, I’m not lazy, I’m BRILLIANT. Well, actually my kid is, but I made him so whatever. The point is, I birthed him and he helps me make new friends. Only fair, wouldn’t you say?
