Major Parenting Milestones that No One Talks About

There are a lot of milestones in parenting and in the lives of your kids. Big exciting ones like the first time they get a tooth or their first word. Not so exciting, yet still important ones, like first vaccines and first eye exams. Then there's the awkward or uncomfortable ones like their first kiss or their first detention. Firsts are a way of life and a way to track your parenting journey. But honestly, as a two time mom, I feel like the baby books and parenting guides really miss the mark on most major milestones. I mean, it was really cool and amazing the first time my kids walked but it was also awesome the first they stopped biting my nipples while breastfeeding. And that got me to thinking, what other major things happen that get ignored by the general public – but are AWESOME?!?! So, for your convenience, here's a rundown of some major parenting milestones that no one talks about – but are definitely cause for celebration… or at least, a post on social media. Feel free to click the image for a downloadable PDF so you can print these out and slap these in your planner to really commemorate the occasion.
