Parenting for New Parents

Things that we have learn’t:

  • Don’t leave toys in the bath- you never know when an outbreak of sick will occur…
  • Don’t furnish your house with cream colours
  • If you schedule a day out, holiday or have a special occasion coming up, you can guarantee that one member of your family will be ill
  • Do not succumb to the desire to buy endless toys, your child will be happiest with a cardboard box and a blanket
  • Shops run out of all supplies of calomine lotion in June
  • Cheap own store brand nappies are the best
  • As soon as your child shows a desire to play in the garden next doors cat will designate that as the best place to poo
  • If you work part time your child will select those days to be sick
  • Your children will not like the same food as you, a happy medium will be reached based around chips with every meal
  • You will find that you prefer children’s films to Cbeebies
  • Forget reading Classic Novels, its all about Miffy and Thomas now
  • The postman doesn’t come until lunchtime
