Although I won't become a father soon (haha, how can you get pregnant as a guy without a girl?), a couple I know (two of my coworkers) recently told me they're going to have a baby.

Another coworker will soon start maternity leave and one of my cousins expects his second child sometime in summer.

I wonder if the whole coronavirus pandemic pushed on the birth rates around the world? I think I read in the newspaper that divorces and general splits of couples have been going up. Seems like all the time together wasn't easy for everybody.

Meanwhile, I'm sitting here alone in my office, wondering if I missed something? Although the "winter bad mood" is gone now, as it is getting warmer and warmer every day, I still have the FOMO (fear of missing out currently).

On the other side, I just leased a Tesla Model 3. It is the most expensive car I've ever owned and I enjoy seeing peoples mouths open up when I talk about it. Going down to the true expenses of it, it is only about 100 € more than my previous car cost.

Having a baby and child is way more expensive, at least I think so. But would it bring more joy into my life?
For a second, I thought you were announcing some big news. Isn't it funny that the Spanish word for pregnant is "embarazada?" Are you planning to have kids once you meet the "right woman?"

Lmao a baby is definitely more expensive. It has really no upper limit to how much you can spend. You can always up grade the food. Always upgrade the education. The clothes. Goes on and on.

BTW what type of joy does the Tesla bring you? Curious.

Yes, someday I plan to have kids. If I won't find a woman until I'm 40 I'm going to adopt some :)

 Well, the acceleration is as insane as the one of a motorcycle. It really pushes you into the seat although I only got the less powerful one :)
