Remember that time when parents cant wait for their child to walk and your friends and family say ‘Oh you say that now, just wait until your child start getting into things‘ and you laugh it off. Until one day it happens, you find all your DVDs on the living room floor, pots and pans on the kitchen floor, bottles on the bathroom floor and pen marks on the wall and say ‘(Insert your child’s name here) What have you been doing! I left you for a second and you manage to do this!‘ So you then admit in your head that your friends and family were right about that.
