How do you parent? What do you do or whom do you listen to for advice? How do you know what is good and what is bad? It’s a never ending saga, one that I doubt I will ever even come remotely close to figuring out. Sure, perhaps I can delude myself into thinking I am the best dada (Caleb’s seeping into my brain) in the world, with no match or peer anywhere. I actually kind of like the sound of that. You can just call me the Big BDitWwNMoPA for short.
Anyway, for those of you that are not the Big BDitWwNMoPA, there may be some hope for you just yet. Here’s some knowledge from a few of my friends, the help you get by…get the pun there?
- “The longer you spend cooking for your child, the less they will like the result. This is a scientific fact, and ranges from hours spent preparing healthy food (which they hate) to party pies, which are ready in minutes (which they love). The ultimate expression of this is fast food, and we all know how much kids love that!” ~ Single Parent Families Magazine
- “As a new parent, strangers will often approach you to ask, “Is she a good baby?” Surprise them by saying, “No, she’s kind of an #$$hole.” ~ Melissa Sher via My Natural Family
- “Having children is like living in a frat house – nobody sleeps, everything’s broken, and there’s a lot of throwing up.” ~ Ray Romano
- ““The first 40 years of parenthood are always the hardest”~ Unknown
- “People who say they sleep like a baby usually don’t have one.”~ Leo Burke
