Truths About Being a Parent …

Being a parent, in my opinion, is the hardest thing ever.  Everything you’ve experienced in life leading up to this moment counts for NOTHING.  You have to learn and adapt … here are some of the less-talked-about things I have discovered about being a parent:

  1. Sometimes you don’t change your clothes every day
  2. Sometimes you don’t brush your teeth every day
  3. Sometimes you don’t shower every day
  4. You will still smell OK though, well for a few days at least
  5. But you might not – thanks to baby vomit
  6. Facebook becomes your only connection to the outside world
  7. You’re supposed to sleep while baby sleeps, but you won’t
  8. TV / iPad is your friend (and your child’s)
  9. Chicken Nuggets become “OK” as takeaways, because they’re chicken.  Right?!
  10. Cocktail sausages are OK for lunch
  11. When you boil a kettle, a child will wake
  12. When you try to sleep, a child will wake
  13. “I’m just going to the toilet” becomes code for “I’m sneaking away so I can eat something / do something without you knowing”
  14. Sometimes you will say you’re going to the toilet, but really you’re just going to sit in there and check your Facebook
  15. You will feel guilty about your decisions as a parent – don’t.  Your kids have no idea.
  16. You might not like your kids.  It’s ok, they can be assholes sometimes – at the end of the day, we know you really love them.

There are no rules to this parenting game.  You do what you can to survive.
