A Third Round of Parenting Tidbits

11. While it may be socially acceptable for Mom and Dad to wear the same clothes two days in a row, it's not a good policy with little babies. One very important consideration: day-old spit-up.

12. When you need a fresh pair of socks for your little one, there will be none in the sock drawer. When you arrive at work and are looking for your cell phone, you'll find children's socks in your bag, your pockets, your desk drawer, etc. I don't know how they get there, but they do. The same goes for hairbands if you have little girls.

13. If your child uses disposable products, he or she will always outgrow the size you JUST bought. This also applies to the whole family in many ways: disposable wipes if you decide to go to cloth wipes, maxi pads if you decide to go with tampons, and regular vitamins if you buy the mega bottle and then take a pregnancy test...

I totally hear you on #13-- here's another one: you buy a mega-pack of kotex and then get a positive pregnancy test the next day. Sigh.
