10 Things New Parents Should Know

Last year, this incredibly honest advertisement was released by Extra Space Storage Units. It features real parents and kids talking to new parents about the top 10 things they wish they had known before having a baby and it makes me cry every time - I don't even have kids.

The whole thing seems pretty overwhelming, but these families break it down with so much love that by the end of it, you'll be a blubbering mess.

Here's the list:

10. Just do what works for you and don't get on the internet, because everybody has an opinion. You'll know how to take care of them.9. Get on a schedule - it is key to sleep. 8. Parenting is hard. Take some time for yourself.7. Discover who they are and just let them be.6. Be prepared for the unexpected, because it will happen.5. Make room for the baby and everything they need.4. Cherish your memories, keep the little things that remind you of those moments.3. Be grateful for your kids. It's worth it.2. Don't be too hard on yourself, it's going to be OK - the house can wait, the chores can wait. 1. You won't know it until you've experienced it, but be prepared to love something more than you thought you could.
