Parents Dish: What Have You Said to Your Child That You NEVER Thought You Would?

There are some parts of motherhood and raising children that you can’t really prepare for. Yes, the books help and talking to our friends who are already raising kids helps. Until you are a parent there are some things you just won’t believe.

Early in my Mom-years, my dad told me to “wait for the day when you find your kid playing in his own poop.” I was mortified and all like, “yeah.. right. My kid won’t do that”.

Not more then two years later — after nap time I found exactly that. My kid was playing in their own poop — not phased at all. I remember saying “No you can not play in your own poop” and immediately thought back to my Dad.

I wondered what other weird things were going to come out of my mouth raising my children. Granted that was one I should have been prepared for — I was warned, but I was still shocked. I then asked around to my friends if they have ever had to say something weird to their kids? What shocked them that they had to say they never thought they would.
