We are way beyond the baby stage at our house, and thank God. Karis graduated preschool this week, and as I sat there sobbing about my last baby growing up (don’t judge me), I thought about all the advice we used to get about parenting babies and how much that has tapered off.

We realize by now that no handbook can solve all of our problems. But man, in the baby stage. . . that unsolicited advice is frequent. Because if parents are good at one thing, it’s telling other parents what to do. And a lot of the baby parenting advice I received? It sucked.
