I have learned a thing or two in my limited parenting experience. Such as:
-If you think your baby has a stinky diaper, it's FAR safer just to assume you are correct rather than sticking your fingers in an opening to confirm your suspicions.
Chances are, the stink is a lot closer to the opening than you had anticipated, as your fingers have just confirmed.
-Hiding is the best policy. Just because you don't like sharing your toothbrush, doesn't mean your kids share the same sentiment about your toothbrush.
- Breaking out into the Wonder Pets theme song while making dinner has a tendency to clear the room. Especially after asking the kids to clean off the table. "What's going to work? Teeeaaammmm work! What's going to work? *pause for effect* TTEEEAAAAMMMM work!"
Usually by the time I get around to belting out that last line at the top of my lungs, my children have disappeared.
It's the darndest thing.
-Accepting the fact that you will never have baking cups when you actually need them, helps with any surprise or irritation you might have otherwise experienced.
It's just the way it is.
They have usually been sacrificed for a better cause.
Unless you're trying to make cupcakes. Then the kids get mad at you for not being prepared and having baking cups on hand.
-If you have to choose between your kids being incredibly sneaky or incredibly clever, always opt for the latter.
They are your kids after all.
