1. Deciding what actually needs to come with you when you leave the house.

Nope, you do not need to bring eight toys, six blankets, and your entire collection of bottles for one trip to the mall.

3. Turning hand-me-downs into totally adorable outfits.

Your first kid's pink leggings + your niece's purple hoodie and pink and purple sparkly headband = fashion success (without buying anything new!).

4. Capturing all the important moments.

You've learned to have your phone on you and ready to take a photo or video at all times because you never know when that first belly laugh or big-sibling hug will happen!

6. Knowing it's probably just a phase.

Refusing to let you comb their hair? Only playing with one toy out of their entire playroom of toys? Just be patient and give it a little time — their habits are definitely not set in stone.
