THINGS I DID NOT EVEN BEGIN TO EXPECT ABOUT BEING A PARENT

A partial list.
  1. You will be expected to be able to craft, or at least attempt to.
  2. Whatever choices you make (breastfeeding, sleep training, food you give your kid) you will be judged, sometimes harshly.
  3. I should have really enjoyed being alone in bathroom while it was still an option.
  4. If your kid is an early riser, like mine, there will no longer be enough sleep in world to make you feel not tired.
  5. You will hate people who tell you their kid sleeps "so late I have to wake her up!" with the intensity of a thousand suns.
  6. Despite all this, you'd never go back to before. Although some sleep would be nice.
