Parenting. No one ever told you it would be this hard, did they? Well, maybe they did, but you didn’t believe them.

After all, you didn’t even have children. And because you didn’t have children, you wouldn’t know how hard it is…that is…until you had them.

And now you know.

You know parenting is the most gut-wrenching and simultaneously rewarding job on the planet.

You know it’s equal parts frustrating and life-giving.

You know it’s possible to love spending time with someone so fiercely but also jump for joy when they fall asleep.

But maybe you don’t know how to navigate the temper tantrums. Or how to stop the hitting. Or how to curb the backtalk.
