I knew I’d get educated when I posted this. Thanks for the info.
To defend my friend a little bit, she did leave early, she didn’t get wasted and her husband was at home taking care of the baby with one of the grandmothers. Like many first-time parents, I think they’re pretty much learning this stuff as they go along.
I personally, can’t keep a goldfish alive. After my father passed away, somebody gave me a beautiful orchid, which I accepted with trepidation. I told the giver thank you and that I was immediately placing it in hospice care with the hope that I could at least keep it comfortable until its inevitable demise.
