When you become a parent, there are countless things you have to learn: How to feed a baby. How to survive without sleep. How to have a social life centered around a tiny human. These are just the things you expect. Then there are the things no one tells you: How to cook an entire meal using only your left hand or how a trip to the store to buy toothpaste will now require as much planning as your last vacation. Parenthood is like being inducted into a secret club, with its own special handshakes and understanding nods.
