Sleeping in

Anyone who has had kids knows you are basically trading in late mornings for the proper care and raising of the future of humanity. It's not a bad trade-off in the long run, but it may seem like a steep price, especially at 6 a.m. on a Saturday after you stayed up a little too late watching 'The Hobbit' the night before (yes, I'm still catching up on movies that debuted in 2012).

It's nap time

I got in my car after leaving the store and couldn't find my sunglasses. So I went back inside and asked several of the employees working behind the counter if they had seen them, describing them in great detail. One of them replied, 'Do they by any chance look like the ones on top of your head?' I thanked her and walked out with my sunglasses on my head and my tail between my legs. Then I went home and took a nap.

Spoiled parents

To think we were worried about the kids getting spoiled. Really, we should have been worried about ourselves.

In the early days, getting a full night of sleep was a pipe dream. But you quickly get used to periods of time when the children are napping. So much so that when they change their routine you feel slighted by their impunity. After all, we had a deal. That deal was, they sleep until 6 a.m. and we feed them, play with them for a few hours and put them down for a nap. The nap should last a minimum of one hour, but preferably two hours or more. And so forth
