Your not a parent if you haven't .....
been weed or pooed on
had sleepless nights
had a shower because you were looking after your baby
laughed until you've cried over some of the gorgeous and surprising things your children have said.
secretly been a little bit pleased when your children have had a raised temperature because it means that you can snuggle up on the sofa with them and watch movies.
danced around the house like crazy people when your favourite songs come on the radio, just because having children makes you feel like doing that sometimes
played with toys, and felt like a child again, and loved it!
Having children is not ALL about mess and nasty smells, lol! A lot of the time it's pretty cool and a lot of fun, in my experience anyway
not forgetting watching Disney films and staring at your baby or long periods while they sleep..i used to do that loads when he was first born.
If you haven't considered SHOOTING your teenagers? What is that about? Help me understand that!
Sheessh How Shitty are your kids??
My kids weren't like that all
Only have 1 baby who is 7 months and is a BOY and if you change the nappy at the wrong time which i have done a couple of times you get weed on!
Glad to hear you have perfect children
Wrapped a towel over your face to change a really smelly nappy/dipper.
Cried, after your toddler has been sick literally all over the place, and you don't where to start to clean it up...
had to wait until the last second before getting changed for work or going out for fear of getting baby sick on you...
Noticed the perfume of the day smells suspiciously like peanut butter and everyone in the elevator is looking in your direction.
Don't worry. We all go through these phases. In time to come we would look back at this as the 'Good ole times' and just laugh away.
All these bad times are memories that when your baby is older you can laugh with them about.
My mum always tell me how once when she was changing my nappy i got up and started to poo so she had to quickly catch it with her hand HAHA...joys of being a mummy we laugh about it all the time especially now that i have my own little one who loves to wee just as i open the nappy and smiles at after he is done..aww love him so much
You're not a parent if you haven't secretly wished your child would sleep for a week just so you could take a shower, eat a complete meal, do the laundry-dishes-vacuuming, and have intimate relations with your significant other.
Guess I'm not a parent then!
Does it really take a week to take a shower, eat a meal, do the housework, and have a bit of how's-yer-father?! Wow.
Well, for the last one, if you're doing it right, it does!
(the key words are: secretly wished lol)
before my son was 4 (and put on ritalin) I could go for an entire week without accomplishing much - on a regular basis! he'd be up before 7 am and wouldn't go to sleep before midnight (10-10:30 if he didn't have a nap). yeah, there were many times I wished he'd sleep for a week! lol
If you haven't changed a stinky,soiled diaper.
Or had your baby throw up in your face and not flinch.
You have to truly love someone with all your heart to handle that.
Now that I look back on it all, and from a Granny's perspective, smelly diapers, throwing up, not sleeping, temper tantrums and all of that jazz was a breeze. If you can survive the teenage years, you can survive anything.
Your not a parent if you haven't ..... forgotten to wear a durex.
Your not a parent if you've never: Loved another human being more than life itself.
I appreciate every mother who is always taking care with her child.
You're not a parent if you haven't sat in a doctors waiting room with a sick, screaming baby for over an hour and then had the doctor FINALLY come in, look at you, smile and say, "Been waiting long?"
And you DIDN'T kill him. That takes a parent's patience.
You're not a parent if you haven't
*sung "the itsy bitsy spider" 200x in a row just because it makes baby laugh
*slept in a rocking chair all night because its the only place your sick baby can sleep
*obsessed over poop
*cried tears of joy when baby hits a milestone you've worked all week on (like clapping)
*gotten the "mommy you're nuts" look from your 11 month old and worried momentarily about her teen years

Would you have children if you had it to do all over again?I'm single and constantly being told I should have kids, blah, blah, blah. I don't want children, period.

For those that don't have children: do you feel guilty for not bringing new life into this world?

What did you think about motherhood before having children and what do you think now?
