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.
Don't worry, they can't hurt themselves with this rattle that's lightweight and easy to hold. And as a plus, it's called "Buff Baby." Find it for $10 at Amazon.
