You could send a hand-crafted birthday card instead:
Condoleances. And courage for the 18 years to wait for your freedom to come back.PS: A small amount of gin in the feeding bottle can save you a lot of sleeping time during the first years. And if you mix it with milk, be sure to add a little portion of cream so that the milk does not go bad.
He can still retreat into joy and bliss by giving in to the idiocy malwhare that we all have between our ears for exactly this situation. It's actually there to keep us from strangling the little brat after two weeks. But not only we[^] have that malware.

She send me a card for the birth of her child and I don't want to be rude so I just send one back.
We worked together a lot on school assignments, mostly because we both lived far away and didn't have a lot of friends in class.
But we have like nothing in common.
So after school I never bothered to contact her again until she contacted me.
We had some fairly good contact for a while, but now, years later, it's two messages a year, one on her birthday and one on mine.

Anyway, I hate maternity visits since I really don't like children and I don't like pretending I do.
If this was my best friend I really couldn't skip it, but it's not, it's someone who I haven't seen in years.
Alas, those old fuddy-duddies who still send physical cards via snail-mail are, unfortunately, unreconstructed reactionaries. For the most part, they think that boys should be boys, and girls should be girls. A bit odd, but it's (still?) a free country.
As for babies, you should be more welcoming. After all, they will be paying your old-age pension!
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
