    Hear us out.

    2. If we are out having "adult time" without our kids, don't judge us for having a ~good time~.

    6. Please excuse things we cannot control. Like peeing a little.

    8. Every single day of our lives is really unpredictable.

    9. If you see us out and we don't seem friendly, don't read too much into it.

    10. If it seems like we talk about our kids a lot, please forgive us.

    11. Never, never say: "My kid would never do that!"
