Making Mealtime Meaningful: Discover how we're giving back with the 12T Cares program →

If you have ever brought a newborn home for the first time, you know how stressful the process can be. That’s what makes this story such a great one.

There are so many aspects that need to be figured out and it can be tough for parents to know exactly what they are doing with their child. The couple that you are about to meet took a moment to crack some jokes in the midst of all the madness.

That’s all you can do sometimes. It is not always easy for new parents to find a moment to joke around, that is for sure. Todd Wilson and Kristen Yanow brought their little one home from the hospital and decided that they wanted to stay ahead of the game. After all, little ones are often noisy and the last thing that you want to do is upset the neighbors.

They elected to provide a peace offering and we cannot stop laughing. It’s such a nice gesture, too. Their apartment complex enjoyed a nice laugh and the rest of the internet is able to join in on the fun. Todd shared on Instagram that Quint was first welcomed into the world back in January. His parents live on the Lower East Side of New York City and share their floor with four neighbors.

Since they were not sure how loud or frequent their son’s cries would be, they decided that they would provide their neighbors with a much-needed heads-up. That was awfully nice of them, of course.

That’s not all that the couple did, either. They put a bunch of mini liquor bottles on the door as well. “Take a nip of two at your leisure,” the sign reads. This is definitely a nice refresher course in the finer points of parenting.

What did you think of this one? If you are anything like us, you are laughing hysterically at this touching and thoughtful gesture.

Not Todd and Kristen, though. They posted a sign on their door to try and apologize ahead of time. “We have a newborn. He is loud. We are sorry. He’s cute as f–k, but very noisy. Bear with us. Thanks for your patience,” the sign reads. It has since been posted to Instagram, so everyone can enjoy this clever sign.
