A Little Knowledge....

Things I have learned since becoming a parent:

Silence when children are not sleeping = trouble.

My clean house will stay clean for less than ten minutes. (So sad.)

Scissors hold endless fascination for those under eight years old. (As do glue, glitter and paint.)

Glue, glitter and paint are never coming out of most carpets and upholstery.

It is very hard to be a good parent when your hormones are raging.

Children do not know what hormones are.

Two year olds do not discriminate between the table and the floor when it comes to food.

I do not discriminate between frustration and disgust when it comes to food on the floor.

Children cannot cut their own hair in a stylish way, no matter how many times they try.

Trying to talk a two year old out of wearing rain boots will be unsuccessful. Even if it is hot and sunny or bedtime.

The above rule applies to swimsuits and tutus.

Children can fully undress while seat belted in a car on the freeway.

Children will eat their food in the car. The same cannot be expected at the dining table.

Car valet is expensive.

Now I know.


  1. Too funny, and too true! Just before our oldest was mobile we reupholstered some chairs in WHITE fabric. WTH were we thinking!? Totally stained, less than two years later. Oh well!

  2. OMG, I love this post & remember those days.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!
