One of the best blogs posts on parenting I have read. It mirrors what I feel quite a bit and hope that you enjoy it. Parenting is indeed a difficult job but we can’t compare ourselves to others as we just don’t know. I really enjoyed this piece and hope you will as well
Alright, I won’t rehash what I wrote yesterday.
I entered into the octagon and found myself in a Parenting Death Match. The “who has it harder, whose job is tougher, who’s busier, who’s more important, who sleeps less, eats less, has less downtime, and less fun” competition. The “whose life is more miserable, because a miserable life is more important and compelling than a joyous one” contest.
That thing where we see who can beat their chest and play their violin the loudest.
That thing. That thing where we argue about whether dads have it tougher than moms, or moms have it tougher than dads, or Stay at Home moms have it tougher than working moms, or parents have it tougher than non-parents, or I have it tougher than you, or he than her, or her than him, or my dog than your dog, etc, etc, and so forth.
