7 Side Effects Of Parenthood No One Talks About

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK


Listen, nobody is perfect. But that concept extends especially to parents. Not because we screw up more, mind you, but we have a living reminder of all of our mistakes and uncertainty constantly asking us questions, second guessing our every move and generally making it hard to think straight.

We get so wrapped up doing stuff, sometimes, that we don’t even realize we’re doing things right or even doing things at all. There can be a wonderful abundance of unconsciousness when you become a parent. It’s amazing.

Here now are 7 signs that you might have no idea what you’re doing as a parent! How many can you admit to?

1. Saying Stuff Like:
“I have no idea what I’m doing!!”

No, you’re waking them up, making them breakfast, getting them dressed, wiping their butts, packing a lunch, driving them to school, signing them up for sports, cleaning up things that aren’t your job, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

7. You Get Infected With Get-Off-My-Lawn-itis
