Six Milestones That Will Never Make Your Brag Book

The day you welcome your new baby into the world is a miraculous day you never want to forget. And once you bring your precious bundle of joy home, you will inevitably start to take a million pictures to document every accomplishment small and large – of theirs and yours.  But as joyful as those moments like baby’s first steps or first day of Kindergarten there are plenty in between that you may just as soon want to let go by without a whole lot of pomp and circumstance. Let me point a few out. Be sure to leave me some ideas of your own. Maybe we should put them into their own “special” book.

  • It’s How I Roll 1 of 8

  • Busted 5 of 8
    The first time you get spoken to by your child's preschool teacher because they said a bad word (that they either got from you or the Tupac CD you've been playing in the car).
  • Junior Picasso? 6 of 8
    Junior Picasso?
    The first time you get caught throwing away your kids' "art" and are forced to act like it was all a horrible mistake. "WHAT? How in the world did that get mixed in with the old bills?"

    First time you feel the sting of a wayward stream of baby pee that hits you in the eye.
