Things I've learned in my year of parenting:
They don't care if you just finished cleaning.
Toys will be frequently used unsafely and incorrectly.
My peripheral vision is ever improving.
Time out requires patience.
Labradoodles make good guard dogs/big sisters.
Victory laps accross the sofa are imperative after a 14month old learns to climb up there.
They want to do everything you do.
Every moment we share is a blessing!
