3) Completely letting themselves go.
No, you weren’t going to forgo the self-care once you became a parent. You’d find time to stay on top those roots and get an occasional mani/pedi. Oh, the delusions of grandeur you once entertained.
Now, shaving your legs is reserved for special occasions and your self-care routine consists of brushing your teeth.
4) Talking back
You’re future perfect children we’re never going to talk back to you. Your friend’s child, who says “no way” and “never” constantly, was in serious need of a little tough love.
You had yet to comprehend that children are not reasonable beings; they don’t respond well, or sometimes at all, to direction.
So you thought you’d never co-sleep did you? All the controversy and concerns, you’d never get into that habit.
But they find you. And if you want to function like a human and not like a raging maniac sleep-deprived mombie, you do what you gotta do.
6) Table Manners
You were never going to be that flustered couple. The pair whose children were crawling under the booth table and climbing on the chairs. What a bunch of slackers, and how rude!
