In an email exchange with friends about the misery of parenting, I was quick to point out the things no one ever tells soon-to-be parents about parenting. Things like catching your kid's vomit so it doesn't get all over everything in site and cleaning up potty accidents--I know this list was longer, but I'm not recalling it all now.
One friend replied, "Hey! Sounds like a typical weekend out with my friends!" It was perfect!
And it reminded me of this quotation from Johnny Depp:
"[My son's] a hellcat, boy, he's something. The best training you can have for toddlers is having spent a number of years hanging out with drunks. Helping them walk, cleaning up their vomit, putting ice on their head when they fall and smack it on the table; the uncontrollable rage and tears and joy all in, like, ten seconds. He's just a cool little drunk. "(2003) http://www.deppimpact.com/quotes.html
Thank you, Johnny. Couldn't have said it better myself! It's so true!!!!
