Ten on the 10th: Baby Advice from my 5th Graders

Today's Ten on the 10th (or technically Ten on the 12th this month) is brought to you by by 5th graders.

Last Friday, they threw me a shower and gave me a book of advice for raising our little guy. And, as you can imagine, it was hysterical.

So I went through and picked my 10 favorite entries for your viewing pleasure/Monday morning comic relief, because who doesn't love starting the week with laughter?!
1. Try not to get frustrated when the baby starts to cry (it's hard).

2. Make him love sports and maybe give him his first football.

3. Make Momma's cooking for him and put notes in his lunchbox.

4. Beware of the "diper". Everywhere you go, bring the baby.

5. Don't DROP him!

6. Babies are very loud, so make sure you have earplugs.

7. Go to family "orthadonist" (it covers your "incurance" plan)

8. Boys love sports not Barbies and Yoga is key for a steady lifestyle.

9. To relax, go to the nail salon.

And a drumroll for the last one please....

10. Use Mr. Nelsen as your servant. He's there for a reason.

  2. I am crying I am laughing so hard.... Those are so so cute and will be a great thing to look back at and laugh one day. I love that a few of them keep saying never leave your baby alone, or always take your baby with you! HAHA

  3. OMG i am cracking up! Make sure you feed him Gerber baby food...thats obviously a MUST hahaha. Thanks so much for the laugh!
