Suddenly: a lot more washing up needs to be done regularly, are going through a lot more food, the fridge needs careful organising to fit everything in, the supply of nappies is of concern; and tracking which baby bottles are just washed versus sterilised is a fine art. ("Did you move those ones?" "No, those ones." "Are you sure?")
They are secretly training you in, for babysitting duties and haven't told you yet.
