Do you have children, Dear Readers? Maybe you have just one child or one on the way or maybe you are the favorite aunt/uncle, babysitter or friend of a darling little tyke? Well, I am here to dispel any and all misconceptions that the little darling you see before you now will see you as the unicorn at the center of their universe forever but will, in fact, at some point see you as the least cool person in their radius of being. That is right, Dear Readers, you will be considered at least 50 shades of uncool. What to do? What to do? OWN IT! That’s what! Your child will be aloof and distant one minute and then cuddle in your lap the next. They will hold your hand and then drop it like a hot rock if you whisper something they don’t like. Know this and own those moments for two main reasons, sanity maintenance and assurance in the knowledge that what comes around goes around. For all the times your absolute lack of coolness seemed certain in their mind, you do something to dispel their misconception of you. You see Dear Readers, someday you will once again be the cool unicorn with a heart full of love and a head full of genius ideas and advice and it will be your little darling’s turn to be 50 shades of uncool when they become a parent. Who do you think they’ll call?
