VIDEO: Expectation versus reality - a hilarious look at parenting

 
When We Have Kids

Remember when you thought you had it all figured out? Munchkin

Posted by Story of This Life on Tuesday, 28 July 2015

Organic baby food only. A technology free home. Zero tolerance. It’s easy for expectant parents to have an unrealistic idea as to what life with kids will entail before welcoming children into the world.

If, like many, you vowed to do things a certain way, check out this hilarious video from award-winning childrens’ brand, Munchkin. 

The baby goods company, which aims to rid the world of mundane kids’ products, specialising in innovative bath, feeding, travel, safety products and toys, has teamed up with acclaimed US vlogger, Esther Anderson, as she looks back at some of the ambitious plans she and her husband made before the birth of their child. 

In the two-minute film, the couple promise to never let their child dictate their schedule; say they’ll have potty training mastered in just six months and insist that they’ll never, ever, let themselves go. 

But as the video proves, sometimes it doesn’t matter how prepared you think you are, being a parent just isn’t like how you imagined it!
