Being A Parent Is Hard

To me being a parent is one of the most important jobs in the world and requires a great deal of responsibility. Kids aren’t able to take care of themselves and look to us for care and support.

One of the first things I can remember purchasing once we found out Melinda was pregnant was a car seat. Children’s car seats come in so many makes and models it can make your head spin but you must do your research to make sure you are getting the best car seat that you can afford. Kids ride in the car so often this is definitely an extremely important purchase.

Another thing I can remember wanting to buy but Melinda vetoed and with good cause was a jogging stroller. I had it in my head that I would jog and take Shaun/Shae with me. LOL. If any of you know me you know I am a cyclist at heart and jogging/running typically isn’t in my vocabulary. What I find crazy is I have seen people out running with double jogging strollers. I won’t jog with a single but you see people out with doubles. They must really really love running, LOL.

These are just a few things you need or may want to purchase but you will need a ton of other stuff like a crib, food, diapers, cloths and the list goes on and on. I don’t think until you are about to become a parent do you realize all of the things that are needed. I was terrifies the first time I found out Melinda was pregnant because I had no clue what was going on but some how I figure most of it out and the rest is history.

Tell me one of the craziest things you or your significant other purchased or may have wanted to purchase once you found out you were pregnant.

Mine was a jogging stroller. That still makes me laugh.
