You had a baby. Yay!
You should realize that kids tend to grow up and get “less cute” to “outright ugly” from time to time.
At first, the little one can turn your heart into something similar to what a microwave can turn a stick of butter into in 13.3 seconds. This may be by design; it’s possible children start out at their most adorable so that parents can deal with the EVERYTHING that they’ll need to deal with from now on.
They’re so yummy and cuddly and yeah yeah yeah. Shut it. We get it. Enjoy it while it lasts. All kids get bigger, and then parents have that moment. The moment where their kid is the absolute opposite of cute, intentionally, and you really realize it.
On moment you may be humming or whistling because your child is so adorable that if you don’t do these things your head will explode. The next moment, you’re dealing with a pissed off
It could be something hideous they do or say, but it’s that moment when they’re wicked and you know that they meant to be so. That’s the shovel of a realization that every parent get hits in the face with, and it’s the same metaphorical shovel that can bury a lot of misconceptions about having kids.
An insult said with the intention to hurt, HURTS! A jar that’s been accidentally shattered is nothing compared to the same thing done on purpose and with villainous smile.
They’re precious; don’t get me wrong! You don’t need to do anything as drastic as putting your kid behind zoo-like bars, or feeding them eucalyptus.
What was your moment? When the walls of your perfect vision of your child came crumbling down?
