Will reduce your recreational use of alcohol however. You're just too damn busy and tired to to go bonkers. Paid maternal leave was great for us but wifey would hand me the kid(s) as soon as I walked in the door from work and she'd pass out for a few. Ya do whatcha gotta do as a team. A sore point was that I'm a deep sleeper and wouldn't hear the boys crying in the middle of the night cuz I was in magical sleepy land. Then came the rib pokes. And elbows or kicks if I didnt wake up. Good times. Good times.
