Parenting is super hard! Between diapers and bathings and late night feedings, raising a baby into a toddler into a kid is nonstop work!
But our friends at Babble are here to show you the light at the end of the tunnel! Here are just a few things you have to look forward to when your kids get older:
The Music They Like Gets Cooler
I'm as big of a fan of the Wiggles as anyone (LiveStrong, Greg!) but The Wheels On The Bus just keep going round and round, which gets old. My kids have iPods and we're all on Spotify so we make playlists for each other and share music. It's basically the bomb.
They Feed Themselves
Perhaps to your dismay, growing children learn to feed and feed and feed themselves. It becomes its own special type of hassle to keep your pantries stocked, but to anyone who has taken a faceful of strained peas I can promise you this: It gets better.
They Make You Better Presents
As kids get older the presents they make for you get exponentially better. Seriously, what am I supposed to do with a reindeer with handprints for antlers? I can't wait until my kids start making some real money so they can actually buy me something. It's, like, the least they can do.
