- John DiBiase: Any advice for new parents?
TobyMac: Are you a new parent?
- John: Almost… October.
TobyMac: Really?! Awesome, man!!
- John: Yeah… I’m scared out of my mind!
TobyMac: It’s amazing, dude! Y’know, I only have two regrets that have stuck with me my whole life. One is: once I got married after I dated/courted my wife for six years, I’m like, “What was I waiting for?! This is the bomb!” And then when I had my first child after five years of marriage, which was my little “plan,” after five years of marriage and I had Truett, I was like, “We should have done this the first year!” Y’know what I mean? I absolutely loved it! And I wanted everything to be – for my marriage and for my child – I wanted to have all my life set up perfectly. But it’s just not nice. It’s so much nicer to jump, y’know what I mean? And have a kid! It’s going to turn the passion up on everything you do. So, advice? The first few times the baby wakes up in the middle of the night… just fake sleep, man. Just fake like you’re dead to the world. OR the first time, offer to get it cuz then she’ll be like “No, it’s OK, I’ll get it.”
