Considering Living with Kids: Read this first
If you’re someone who is even the slightest bit possessive about your things you need to understand that it is a child your dealing with! Even if it is a friend’s kid and your friend has always been awesome about helping you out or listening, remember they have a full time job with their child! You need to be more understanding and patient then you see them being. Especially if you have never been in a situation where you are so closely involved in a child’s life. (Especially one that is not yours!)
Words of advice: Do not put yourself in this situation if you are not a patient person. Please take a moment to answer a few of these questions before telling yourself that you are patient.
- If woken at 7am, and you don’t have to work until 11am, by a screaming child every half hour for the next 3 hours, would you be patient?
- If you came home to find all your favorite________(Fill in the blank) on the floor damaged or undamaged, more than 3 times, would you be patient?
- If you found your stuff in the Childs room with said child’s cheesy or jelly fingerprints on them, would you be patient?
I am not saying that this happens in all situations but regardless, if you have never lived with children before you need to prepare for the worst. The questions I’ve posted are just to start your thoughts.
