​Here's what..

I wish someone would have told me these 10 things.

1.. It's hard as he$%

2.. They need to eat, like all day from birth, until they get married.

3.. They NEVER catch the flu during the day.. It's always between the hours of 2-4 a.m. (see #4)

4 .. You can recognize the sound that comes 3.2 seconds before vomit occurs.. while in a sound sleep.

5.. You WILL crawl out of their bedroom on your hands and knees at least 7 times.. trust me on this!

6.. You will go days without showering. At first you are appalled.. but then, by year 3...You begin to like the aroma of the "new you."

7.. They teach you the art of multitasking.. Like.. Change a dvd, waitress happy meals, and swat the kid in the 3rd row to break up a fight.. all while driving a car.

8..You will never be able to go to a public restroom alone, again. They will always follow you, or cry until you return.

9..You will do everything you said you would never do just to make it stop!!

10.. Their laugh will cure any sickness, or bad day you're having. Their hugs and kisses will make your heart grow.. and.. the love you feel is indescribable!
