After a lot of highly relatable observational dad comedy about our kids and wives, we move onto Eli's baby medicine madness. Some stuff you can't give your baby at all, some you can't give until a certain age, and some has only recently been found to not do anything. From there we swap ER visit stories.

Or should we immediately allow them to quit anything they want? It's an interesting question. Many of the things we now enjoy may have been things that were initially weird and anxiety inducing.
