These are just the ones that apply right this minute – I’m sure you can think of more….
If you start telling people a child was “so easy to potty train” and “she practically trained herself” she will immediately start wetting her pants, possibly even refusing to use the potty at all.
If you ever reach a moment in life where you feel you might have home and family just about under control, one of your children will come down with the stomach flu.
P.S. This isn’t a Murphy’s Law, but is it possible we could end the societal practice of telling pregnant women how cute they look? Maybe some people like it, but I for one don’t feel a bit cute and would like to know what is cute about gaining 20 pounds around my mid-section. Please. When the baby comes out, you can tell me how cute HE is all day long. Just had to get that off my chest.
