I guess some of these are more observations than tips, but whatever.
Parenting Tip #1, given by my BIL: You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friend’s nose. You can, however, pick your child’s nose.
(This conversation came up when I was serving cake to the kids at Leo’s birthday party. Somehow I got on the topic of nose picking, and as they were tucking into their cake I told them that my very favorite time to pick my nose was when I was baking birthday cakes.)
Parenting Tip #2: Anyone who knows how to overcook vegetables can make baby food.
Parenting Tip #3: Having one kid makes you proud. Having two kids makes you humble.
Parenting Tip #4: The key to getting your baby to sleep through the night is to stop caring. He won’t necessarily start sleeping through the night sooner, but you won’t care.
Parenting Tip #5: Walk softly and carry a supply of dum-dums in your purse.
How ‘bout you? What’s your favorite slightly snarky parenting tip?
