Fair warning to all you new parents out there:
At some point you will *yell at your child about the fact that they can't hang their towel to save their life. Or how they come inside after being in a snowstorm and toss their (new) coat on the kitchen counter (wtf, right??). And you will yell at them because somehow the lid to the new toothpaste somehow made its way to the floor down the hall from the bathroom. Regardless of why you are yelling...you will yell.
But heed my warning:
If you go to yell at them about how they are leaving for college soon and that they will not make a good roommate for someone, you might end up yelling this:
You are going to be a horrible, horrible roommate.
But because you sometimes talk fast when you are flustered, you will end up yelling this at your bouncing baby boy:
You are going to be a horrible whore-mate.
And your son will giggle and your point will be lost.
*and by yell, I mean raise your voice slightly in a stern manner.
