Before I had a kid, I was the best mom in the world. I knew it all; had all the answers; and couldn't believe some of the ridiculous things some parents resorted to in order to get their kids to do something as simple as eat. I mean, how hard can that be, right? I would never dream of doing some of the things I saw other parents doing when I had my baby.
Buuut then I had a baby of my own, who's now a running, screaming, mess-making toddler, and I get it, man. I really, really get it. It's so much easier to parent when there's not an actual child involved. And dear god, a hell of a lot more relaxing, too. Remember the ol' "simply walking out of the house when you need to go somewhere" days? Life was so easy then.
Comedian Michael McIntyre has a hilarious bit called "People With No Kids Don't Know." And he's right. They really don't. (Speaking from experience here! I was one of the worst offenders out there!)
