Things Only Parents Appreciate

Lately there have been a lot of posts circulating on Facebook and blog sites about the choice to go kidless and all good and bad (mostly judgement) that’s goes along with it. I’m not going to say that people are missing out by not having kids, and I certainly spend some time wondering how much more sleep, free time, and disposable income I would have without kids… (And I won’t lie, sometimes it seems like a wonderful choice).

Regardless of your preference for children, there are just some things that only parents will ever understand (and that’s okay). So, I think only parents will truly understand my emotions this morning when husband sent me this picture:

Yes. That is poop… In a potty. This poop happens to belong to a very stubborn two-year old who poops, on average, 5 times a day and has consistently refused to poop on the potty. Until now. I felt like announcing to everyone I ran into that E finally pooped on the potty. But I didn’t. I blogged about it instead. (After all, I don’t want to the THAT person who gets criticized by the non-parent people for posting poop pictures on facebook)

If you’re a parent, what are some of this things you appreciate?

If you’re not a parent, what do us parents do that annoy you?

  1. My mom struggled to potty train me, and then one day she just didn’t put any underpants on me… and I RAN. Straight to the potty. Hah.
    I don’t have kids but I really want some when the time is right. I guess parenting posts on FB kind of annoy me but I would never make an issue about it. I just kind of ignore it. In general I’m pretty tolerant of parents except for the ones who neglect their kids, which we see a lot in our area and it makes me livid.
    Yay for E 🙂


    1. One time, a few nights ago, we left a diaper off of E because we were out for a walk, he pooped, and we forgot a diaper (but had wipes, for some reason). As soon as we got home we we asked if he had to pee and he said no. Not even 2 min later he started peeing on the floor and was just staring down at the puddle forming! What a stinker!
      And I agree, neglectful parents are horribly annoying… And just horrible in general


Tell me what you think, I'd like to know...
