I'm a parent. That tends to sound a bit like a confession. But most people who know me also know that I love kids. I have three children right now, and hope to add more in the near future. I've learned many things from being a parent. I learned there is a strange phenomenon with children where they cannot hear something they are told unless I tell them multiple times. It's interesting because it doesn't seem to be all the time, only certain times, and usually only those times when they need to do something they don't particularly want to do. And I really get tired of repeating myself. It gets quite annoying after a while.
