C’mon. I am so tired of hearing about what a hard life you have with your children. So you spent the night dosing them up with cold medicine? You spent the morning making lunches for three kids? You haven’t had a proper beachside vacation with your husband since the ankle-biters have come along? Blame your husband for that one. Not your kids.

So what?

It’s called parenting. It’s called They didn’t ask to be born but you chose to have them. Now stiffen up and do it. Your children deserve it. They deserve your attention and your love and your time. It’s hard for everyone. It’s hard for them. You aren’t special. And don’t tell me about what a super fantastic life you would have had. Rumor has it that someone wrote Harry Potter a sentence at a time between diapers over several years.
