THINGS NOBODY TELLS YOU ABOUT BECOMING A PARENT

(based on my experience with an 8 month old)
  1. Not long into the parenting thing, you'll trade off your goal ofbeing "the perfect parent" for the goal of "just help me survive this day"
  2. You may buy the latest and bestest toy, but all your kid really wants to play with is your iPhone
  3. Every trip out of the house will feel like getting ready to go on a month long vacation to the other side of the world.
  4. People without kids won't understand you (I didn't either before I had mine)
  5. It's all worth it!
