Even just the title of this post makes us chuckle, because we know full-well what’s coming: humility. The humility that comes from lived parenting experience and erases all former judgments about what we’d surely never do when we have kids.
Now we’re outright laughing. Because we’ve done it all. An incomplete list of our real-life parenting in a real-life world includes:
Murphy says: ugly toys in primary colors
Makenzie says: a semi-permanent ball pit in the living room
Ben says: letting the baby sleep in our bed… every night
Sarah says: using a toddler leash
Cassie says: tiny clothes with characters on them
Hadley says: children wearing costumes in public when it’s nowhere near Halloween
Jess says: being “that mom” who forgets to pick up her child from school
Maddie says: princess nightgowns
Devin says: going through a list of names before hitting on the correct one
Caroline says: being unprepared, so the baby comes home wearing only paper towels (!)
Chelsie says: driving a minivan
Every single one of us at some point: too much screen time; McDonald’s Happy Meals; dino nuggets; using ketchup as a veggie disguise; jarred baby food; pacifiers; matching outfits; changing a diaper on a gross public floor; being the one with the wailing baby on an airplane; having a supermessy car; serving ice cream before dinner and/or treats for breakfast. We could continue.
Oh. You too?
