The Expectations Vs. The Reality Of Parenting, In One Spot-On Video

There are some things you just can't learn from parenting books.

Making your own organic baby food, banning all electronics and never once going out in public in stained clothes -- these are just some of the unrealistic expectations parents-to-be have before they welcome their first child. 

In a new video from Esther Anderson, the mom and her husband flash back to two years ago when she was pregnant with their baby. They make predictions about having an even-tempered baby who's great at sports, never throws temper tantrums and is fully potty trained at 6 months -- all juxtaposed with the reality of what it's actually like to raise a baby and toddler. 

Clearly, there are some things you just can't learn from parenting books.
