What It’s Like Being A Parent: Part Three

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK

What is it like being a parent? This is how it feels to try to get your kid to eat.

Last week, we covered the lack of privacy you get to experience when you create life. It’s like that new life has one goal: interrupting yours.

But today, I want to talk about what it’s like to try to feed that new addition to your family. Eating, and the process of preparing for consumption, is one of the most time consuming and soul-sucking things about being a parent.

Here’s what it’s like…

Their First Foods are Often First Fails

Then They Get Wise to your Game

Trying the “Let Your Kid Feed You” Tactic

They grow older and have “opinions” about food

And at dinner, for the rest of your life, you’re like…

If you get asked what it’s like to be a parent, I suggest sharing this post to give them a peek into the parenting world. Or just show them a list of rules so they know better.

    This is hands down the most adorable thing I have seen today….That being said it reminds me of the time we took our son out to eat and he grabbed the lemon wedge from my drink (water!!! only water this time I swear lol!) and proceeded to eat it, making horrible faces but he wouldn’t let anyone take it from him!
    Ahhhh, Parenthood right? ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Now I want some hummus.
