When you cry yourself to sleep from exhaustion…
Welcome to parenthood.

When you’re so exhausted and wake up in the middle of the night grabbing what you think is a baby, only to wake your spouse then fuss at them because they might roll over on the babe. Then your spouse informs you, “Babe, that’s not a kid. That’s my arm you’re grabbing”…
Welcome to parenthood.

When you used to make sure your feet were pedicured at the first polish chip, but now you’re pretty sure your feet qualify as talons…and you would wear those sandals anyway because you just don’t care any more…
Welcome to parenthood.

When you see a woman getting out of her car across from you in the Target parking lot and strapping her newborn twins’ carseats into their stroller and you fight the urge to go give her a hug for fear of coming across completely creepy…
Welcome to parenthood.

When you find yourself enamored, watching your daughter do this, then realize that 10 minutes has passed and you’ve been watching for that long…
Welcome to parenthood.

When your son has been constipated for several days and cries and cries then finally he poops and YOU cry FOR him because you’re so happy for him…
Welcome to parenthood.

When you find yourself giving your babies dialogue like in Look Who’s Talking…
Welcome to parenthood.

When conversations about poop become a normal topic, and not just with their other parent…
Welcome to parenthood.

When you’re having quality snuggle time with your daughter, laying on your back with her on her tummy on top of you and out of no where, without warning, she projectiles into your face WHILE your mouth is open (yeah. totally happened)…
Welcome to parenthood.

When they won’t stop crying and this is what you do
Welcome to parenthood.

When you look at them and realize that those are the little people God has intended for your family the whole four years you’ve been waiting, and all of the puke and poop and sleepless nights don’t matter…
Welcome to parenthood.
