The moment I found out I was expecting my first child, I did everything I could to prepare. I read parenting books and asked other parents for advice. What I learned was mostly about how little sleep I was going to get. I was told the basics like “enjoy your sleep now” or “sleep when the baby sleeps,” both I tried with little success.
I didn't learn much about the nitty-gritty part of parenting. No one warned me about my baby becoming a savage toddler or the fresh hell that awaited me. I was never told about the “threenager” stage, or what happens when they turn four. You get where I’m going here.
After having three children, I can safely say I’m well-seasoned on what to expect as a parent. My kids are five, two and two months old– which means I’m all over the place and in no place at the same time. I’ve learned a lot about parenting over the years, so I want to share my knowledge with you.
