Your kids will challenge you, bring you to tears, crack you up, and make you forget what you urgently had to do. They'll shatter the life you knew into a million pieces. Then they'll put it back together, like a stained-glass window, into something infinitely more complicated and beautiful.
When we’re young, people tell us all about the wonders of parenting. We look forward to the day when we can start a family of our own. Young girls practice on their baby dolls; feeding them and changing their diapers. Young boys imagine all of the things they’ll teach their children when they get the chance. It’s built in our minds as being ever perfect—sometimes too perfect. Parenting is hard work. It’s exhausting and sometimes paired with feelings of frustration, fear and uncertainty. So why do we do it? We do it because the rewards completely outweigh the trials. Because parenting is an amazing experience that should be enjoyed—every minute—even when it’s at it’s most challenging.
