10. I knew many would be "perfect parents", we were humbled by the reality of actually BEING parents...

It is easy to say what you will do and to say how perfect you will be as a parent, especially when you have no children.

Once you actually have kids, the "perfection" plan falls apart, and we do the best we can. We all try to be the best parents, and we are the best we can be, but perfect? No.

I fell far short, though I tried my level best.
