Parenting. It’s perhaps the most difficult, frustrating, rewarding, emotionally-draining and challenging job on this planet. And that’s no exaggeration. As much as a love my kids and I want to spend each and every free moment that I have with him, there are some nights that I simply can’t wait for them to go to bed. And when they do go to bed, I miss them like crazy. It’s an emotional tug-of-war that plays with my heart everyday.
But with all of the ups and downs that come with parenting, we’ve also had plenty of LOL moments that have led to some unfortunate situations, but at least they are ones we can laugh about later as a family. I’m sure you know what I mean. Because there are plenty of other parents who find themselves eating egg shells in their cupcakes (look, I baked with my kids!), spending the last six hours folding laundry (but my 3-year-old is helping me!) or learning the true meaning of ‘toddler tech support.’ Luckily, there are a dozen or so moms and dads who help document these moments on their social media accounts. And no, we’re not laughing at you, we’re laughing with you. * Always *
