The other day, when my friend turned 26, she labeled herself as being in her "late-20s" (even though that's NOT true at all. 26 is still mid-20s. right?????). Anyways, it kind of hit me how much I grew up over the last couple of years. For instance, 23 was only 3 years ago... but 23 me is SO different from 26 me...

This past weekend I babysat my niece who had a complete meltdown and scared me half to death with weird sobbing and twitching-like spasms. So obviously I consulted the higher power of the internets to see whether or not this was normal, to which I found a thread that basically read like this "my first kid did it, freaked out and went to the ER. My second kid does it too. Nothing to worry about."
Which got me thinking to how differently parents raise their kids as they become more comfortable at being parents and immune to "firsts" (love the commercial above).
Below is a snapshot of how my parents responded by the time they became pros at parenting and my two older sisters had allllllll been-there-and-done-that:
