When it comes to parenting, it's best to have a sense of humor.
When it comes to parenting, it's best to have a sense of humor.

If there’s one thing first-time parents know, it’s that they have a lot to learn.

From figuring out how to feed a tiny human to dealing with diaper rash, parenting isn’t always so pretty. Oh, and add to all that trying to shower, sleep and find time to just be your old self.

But the one thing that’ll make this whole parenting thing easier is having a good sense of humor about its ups and downs.

You might go entire days without talking to another adult. Or getting the recommended amount of sleep that adults need. You’ll definitely get peed on. Maybe you’ll run out of baby wipes in the middle of cleaning up. And, yes, at some point you’ll walk around with vomit on you that doesn’t belong to you.

It’s hard and exhausting work, but being a parent is also hilariously rewarding. Just look at that little face, after all.

That’s why we’ve found some spot-on gifts for those new parents who take everything day by day and aren’t afraid to enjoy a good laugh about it all. Our gift guide includes everything from an oven mitt for all the cooking that they won’t be doing to glow-in-the-dark pacifiers that double as night lights.
