Ten years ago tomorrow at 9:48 am CST I became a parent.
That's a pretty long time.
That's two car loans. One third of a mortgage. Twenty times as long as most Hollywood marriages.
So, I've been doing this whole parenting thing for a while now. You'd think I'd have picked up a few pearls of wisdom along the way. You'd think.
The main thing I've learned is that as a parent you never stop learning. Ever. And just when you think you've learned it all, you've seen it all, and you know it all, everything is turned upside down and you have to start all over again.
Oh, and don't argue with a toddler. Just, don't.
They fight dirty.
Let them wear the ridiculous outfit they picked out and tell yourself that they are fashion forward.
