What didn't they tell you when you were expecting your first child?
I had been working on my list of things they didin't tell me for 11yrs before finally sharing it on HubPages...what didn't they tell you?
Example? They didn't tell me about the decomposing fruit in the school bag. And nobody bothered to tell me about toddlers and their obsession with toilet. Or why my straws taste funny (see photo). What didn't they tell you about your little bundle of joy?
They didnt tell me that the little bundle of joy would be a scource of constant worry right into adulthood and that at 36 I would still be worrying about him .......
Thank you Loveslove...it's so true.You never sleep the same again, do you. There was a similar comment in the hub I mentioned where I included a list of things a mother might like to worry about in the comfort of her warm bed!
You invest so much time and love in them...I don't think you can ever truely let them go.
They didn't tell me that a child would actually try to put a rock in their nose,Lose thier legs in the middle of the store during a tantrums,that losing a pacifier would be a world war,and that
a child would ask your landlord why his stomach was so big..
having 4 kids i could go on for a while..but that is a good question
check out my articles if you get time
Nobody told me that my little bundle of joy would worry me to death when he got poorly with tummy bugs and chickenpox. The sleepless nights that are never ending (or at least seem that way).
On a brighter note nobody told me the pleasure I would get from my child as he grew up, making me proud of his achievements on the way.
They never told me that she would be so energetic and sporty. They never told me that I would be an on-call cab driver, ferrying her around to various sports and cheerleading events. I even have a car sticker saying "Mum's taxi" that she bought me as a joke for Mothers Day.
Aside from that, they didn't tell me how much love I would have for her and how close we would actually be. She lights up my world.
No one told me of the amount of patience that I would need to deal with babies on a day-to-day basis. No-one told me how demanding they would be especially as they grow older. There are some things that need to be learned through trial and error.

Why do parents get upset that their child/children have lied to them? Why was it okay for them to lie on their behalf? Do you as a parent firmly believe it's a difference between a little white lie, a good lie, or a...

Probably the best advice I could ever give anybody is not to write about what nobody cares about. So I was happy to see that the writing cooperative mentioned that in this article.https://writingcooperative.com/stop-wri...
