Parenting Wins

First Response’s pregnancy test came out with a version of their strip kit awhile back that boasted it was superior because it had “a curved handle to avoid getting pee on your hand.”

Then some mom made the incredibly valid point that, if you cant deal with getting a little pee on your hands, you probably shouldn’t be breeding in the first place.

And that right there is probably one of the most accurate things you’ll ever read. Parenting is messy, unromantic, and tests your patience constantly, which is exactly why you need to keep a sense of humor about the whole thing… just like these hysterical parents on Twitter.



When Harry Met Reality

Finding a quality rom-com these days is hard. Enjoying a rom-com made 30 years ago is damn near impossible.

Don’t get me wrong – watching The Notebook for the 800th time might make you feel good temporarily, but the reality is that most romantic-based movies offer very little insight or reality on how to manage long-term relationships. Hollywood plays into our dopamine levels that are triggered by grandiose gestures and short-term gratification.

None of which are based on reality which is why they probably never do rom-com sequels.

However, like a diamond in the rough, the classic movie “When Harry Mary Sally” is every bit as relevant today as it was when it was made. And we all can learn a lot from it with regards to romantic expectations and long-term love.
