These tips will hopefully save you many frustrating parenting moments.
I think this heartwarming picture of our son marks the moment he realised that he was our first baby:

He was right. But our first baby just turned 8 and his little sister is 3. These are some of the things we have learned along the way:
1. We are amazingly creative if our sleep depends upon it. I have created, with my own two hands, a working Monster Catcher out of just twigs and rocks. I have also weaved detailed princess stories at 3 a.m. after a nightmare. I can also tell elaborate lies as to why the Tooth Fairy was absent or where their very important art project went (definitely not in the recycling bin).
