I had to make changes to my lifestyle when I finally had kids with my loving wife.
It helped having some experience taking care of older family members which completely removed any hangups I could have had with cleaning diapers or anything like that.
I think my wife was impressed with how motivated I was when we had our daughter first. Some fathers look terrified and stiff as a block of wood, but I was ready to help from the very first moment. Now that we have three kids and they’re all over five years old, I think it’s even harder being a parent. They have brains and think for themselves, often to the worst results. I hate it when they inadvertently hurt themselves badly just trying to have fun with their friends, but they have to learn somehow. With this in mind, it’s also important to remember that there are key things that we can do as parents to avoid as many unnecessary risks with our children as possible. We can’t leave out chemicals or alcohol where they could reach them, especially if they had no way to differentiate between one of these bottles and an edible beverage from the fridge. When I got my medical cannabis card in this state, I consciously made an effort to avoid cannabis flower products and concentrate because of the obvious aroma. But now I’m worried that some of my cannabis edibles look too much like normal candy and dessert treats. The packaging resembles store bought candy with a very tiny THC logo on one end. A young child could easily eat one of these cannabis candy products without having any clue what they’re getting themselves in for.
