A colleague who was a father told me while I was pregnant that the first years of parenthood are easy because children have yet to develop a personality and will do whatever you tell them to do. Looking back, I think this man was either playing a really cruel joke on me or he lied when he said he had kids. The reality is that our little bundles of joy come kicking and screaming with personalities all too ready to share with you and the rest of the world. Kids are funny and unpredictable. Lucky for us some parents have captured the perils of the childhood years. These moments were not staged but rather shown with unfiltered reality and humor. Someone else once told me to enjoy the chaos and love because before you know it our kids will be grown up. This advice I believe to be wholeheartedly true.
