Bored Panda reached out to Yehuda and Maya Devir to inquire about their parenting journey. It turns out that the newlywed parents are just as ecstatic as they’ve always been! They told us, “We’re having a whole new set of emotions and thoughts we didn’t realise existed.” The journey uncovered new aspects of their personalities, not all of which are optimistic. “We have a lot of disagreements as well,” she says, “but we learn from them.”
Yehuda and Maya had no choice but to shift their goals after the baby was born: “There is no longer a couple, no longer a team at work… just Ariel.” In reality, the couple now works in shifts and follows a different routine. “It’s a new life for us, and we’re adjusting. But not in a negative sense. This experience will mould us into a fresh and improved version of ourselves.
