It doesn’t matter how much prior reading, researching or observing you do before you become a parent you still will never be fully prepared for how much your life will change. There are a few people out there that swear blind that it won’t change and that you can still live the life that you had but I just don’t see how that is possible.
With each new stage comes a new set of obstacles that need to be overcome, whether it be a stationary little one that suddenly becomes mobile or a screaming ‘devil possessed’ two-year-old that’s on the floor in the middle of Tesco’s. Every milestone brings with it a new set of joys as well as a new set of problems.
New Parenting Chapter
Our latest big milestone or parenting chapter in our household was Henry’s first day of school…
He was so excited about going and he’s been more than ready to go to school for months now. I can’t wait to go and pick him up now so he can tell me all about his big day. Even though the conversation will go something like this…
Me: So what did you do at your new school today?
H: I had snack
Me: Oh that’s nice, what else did you do?
H: I had lunch
Me: That’s nice too, did you do anything that doesn’t involve food?
H: *Stares blankly* Can I watch TV?
