Ever get annoyed when people tell you that you have no idea what having a child is like until you actually have one? You've raised many nieces and nephews, grown up around dozens of cousins younger than you, you've changed your share of diapers, you're no virgin to the department of babysitting... you know what's up, so of course it's annoying when someone tells you that you won't reallllllllllllllllllllllly know until you have a child yourself. It's like Mackenzie said (more on who Mackenzie is, in a moment),
Sure I did. Who doesn't know that although kids are cute, they are also a lot of work? That's why you get a dog to practice before having a kid. Like, duh.
Not that anyone asked, but if I were going to give advice to first-time parents, I wouldn’t just state the obvious about their life changing forever. That’s not helpful. Kids are a lot of work, yadda, yadda, yadda. Instead, I’d sit them down in comfy chairs, hand them a beer or glass of wine, and break it down for them all realistic-style. Ok, let’s get to it…
There is nothing that can compare. <3
