This is a blog I did way back in Feb of 2007. I've learned alot more since then but these principles still stand.
This blog is brought to you by my baby girl. She is my sidekick, we fight crime together... LOL. For those of you who don't know, I have a 2 year old daughter. Being a father is a great experience. I've learned many things, here are just a few:
- No matter what you think you know about raising a child a woman thinks she knows more. I mean any woman not just other mothers. Women think guys are idiots just learn to smile and wave at them.
- you think picking someone else's nose is nasty till your baby has a HUGE boogger in hers.
- You get used to the smell of dirty diapers
- Girls are born bossy.
- Nothing is funnier than a child telling you "good job" for knowing your colors and shapes.
- You learn to watch your language real quick when your daughter starts repeating "shut up" and "Asshole".
- The day your child understands "go get the remote" is a wonderful day!
- The day your is strong enough to open the fridge is not so wonderful
- Oddly enough kids don't care about getting their clothes dirty
- After you have a child your b-day/Christmas gifts disappear.
- Nobody will really care about you anymore. When I see someone they ask 2 questions. "How are you" and "Wheres your daughter", not in that order.
- Your mother will be sad if you come over without your child.
- Don't bother bringing your daughter into a store if you not going to buy something. Even the auto parts store has toys in it.
- Children will remember when all the candy in the house is, even if you forget. - Most importantly You'll never get thru parenthood if you don't learn how to laugh.
Actually I want to add that if you don't want your former Man Cave to look like this
then you might want to re-think the whole kids thing.
