  1. I am so glad you caught “since” – I was ready to email you about a typo. Kids are really trying. It kills me when people gloss over about parenthood like it is the happiest, sweetest, best thing that ever happened to them. I think they have never been tried by their kids. Don’t get me wrong – I love my children, but it is the hardest thing that a person can embark upon (parenthood, that is).

    1. Thanks Lynda for the comment! I often feel that parenthood is a cult: people tell you “it will change your world”, “it’s the best thing you can ever do”, “you cannot imagine the happiness when…”
      And here is the thing, they make it sound so fabulous, but what they fail to mention is the sleepless nights, the arguing siblings, the back talking, the stubbornness as they try to find themselves, the level of work it takes to keep calm and carry on, the after school homework, the cost of daycare – etc., etc., etc,.
      But here is the thing about a cult, you can’t get out – that’s parenthood. :) That said, I love my kids and I can’t wait to see what they become – outside of my house. :) (joking – sort of).
