Today call me low, because I’m at Aiming Low sharing a few discoveries I made after becoming a mom; certain unexpected benefits I’ve embraced since welcoming two free-loading human beings into my household.
I mean, we all acknowledge that no matter how they enter the family, kids are a life-changers, right? It’s glorious and strange, beautiful and hard to be a parent. Blah blah blah. This we know.
But there were advantages to becoming a mother that I didn’t read about in my copy of What to Expect When You’re Expecting.
(Also, how did they make that guidebook into a movie, exactly? I can’t quite figure this out.)
But I digress.
My point is, Benjamin Franklin once said, “Fish and visitors stink after three days.”
And if you’re really lucky, your kids will be around to foul-up your house for the better part of two decades.
So. You’d better make the most of the good stuff they bring with them.
Or invest in a whole lot of air freshener.
