parent truths

Do you ever look at your child-free friends - or your old self - and shake your head at their optimistic naïveté? There are some things you *only* know when you're a parent - and we'd love you to share your #ParentTruths with us!

We're throwing a Twitter party with Arla Big Milk on Wednesday 9 March 1-2pm and we'll be chatting about all the things you learn (for better or worse!) when you become a parent. What's more, we've got a £250 Love2Shop voucher up for grabs for one lucky partier!

So, what have you found out since having kids? Perhaps you've realised you can function off 13 minutes' sleep and a handful of raisins, discovered *just* how difficult it is to clean Sudocrem off the TV or learnt that the real cause of a toddler tantrum is often...nothing. 

arlaWhatever your parenting revelation, share it by completing the sentence "You know you're a parent when…" at our Twitter party on Wednesday 9 March. Tweet @MumsnetBloggers using the hashtag and you'll be in the running to win a £250 Love2Shop voucher.

Here's what the folks at Arla have to say: "Being a parent comes with its ups and downs and getting your little one the nutrients they need isn't always easy.
