  • Don't ever EVER take your eyes off them. For the next ohh....8 years. Longer if they are immature.

  • Never leave them unattended unless they are in a secure area, such as a crib or playpen or baby proofed room with a gate... And remember that they can suddenly (and when you least expect it) learn how to climb out, around, and over the crib, playpen, and baby gate.

  • No matter what stage they are in your gonna think its the hardest one. When their two weeks old and will only sleep while your holding them and your still getting only 4 hours of sleep. Its the Hardest. When their teething and the scream bloodly murder in the middle of the night and wont go back to sleep. Its the hardest. When the finally learn to crawl and stand up and they are pulling everything off tables and couches. Its the hardest. It get easier and harder all at the same time!

  • Expect the unexpected, you can't have your eyes on them 24/7, it's NOT possible. Crap happens, they are kids, they will get hurt, get into trouble. Just do the best we can by child proofing as much as possible.

  • Never ever for one nano second take your eyes off of them. They can find the most amazing unbelievable ways to hurt themselves.
