I’ve learned a lot of things being a single parent.
No matter how prepared you want to be leaving your home with a newborn/ toddler/youngster, you will never have everything you need.
Its OK to let the dishes sit till tomorrow. Just not till next week.
When it comes to bills, there’s 3 levels of payment options.
- Before due date.
- Past due date.
- Final notice.
Do not shop for groceries you wouldn’t be OK eating past the due date.
The floor will never be clean enough.
Always buy twice as much laundry detergent.
Silence is evil.
Accidents that include cuts/scrapes/bruises are called “boo-boo’s” till the age of 4 or 6. Afterwards they will be regarded as cuts, accidents, war scars (depending on the child).
There is a time and place for lies.
- Lying to a 7 year old asking where babies come from is wrong.
- Lying to a 2 year old that the Netflix is currently down because they want to watch that annoying cartoon for the 15th time is right.
Parenthood is bliss. Its all the other time that sucks.
