Before I had children, I had grand ideas of what I would teach my children, how they would respond, and the blissful life that we would have together.  However, there are three things that I forgot to take into account.

First, I don’t know everything that my kids need to know and that I need to teach them.  Second, I know (e.g. say and do) way too many things that I don’t want my kids to know (e.g. say and do).  And third, I didn’t know raising children meant training parrots!
