Parenting is the hardest job ever.
You hear people say that, but you never really believe it until you are saying it yourself.
& my kids are only five & three. I can just imagine what I’m going to be thinking when they are 17 & 15 with raging hormones & driver’s licenses & bad attitudes. Oh boy, I think I need a bottle of wine right now after putting those images in my head.
Well, this year? It doesn’t seem to be working. We’ve got whining & arguing & tantrum throwing (Lilah’s really our only screamer, it’s just the kind of kid she is I’ve decided. One day, her strong-willed temperament will be beneficial, but just not today). So today, Steve didn’t show up & I don’t think he’ll be making an appearance tomorrow, either.
Ya. Parenting is hard.
The good thing though? Or at least, what makes me feel a little better? I hear a lot of my fellow instagram friends & facebook friends & real life friends that are parents of kids around my kid’s ages are saying the exact same things. So, maybe I’m not the horrible parent I feel like. & maybe this is just a “season” as they say.
But until this season passes? Pass the wine, please!
& just to make you laugh a little, I looked up some funnies that I know you all will relate with.
