I tried to respond to a post earlier tonight regarding parenting, and, as I was typing, the post was deleted. But, I liked what I wrote, so I guess it just goes here...
This is it:
I have two muff-lings, an elementary schooler and a preteen. I always knew I wanted one or two, but I wasn't really prepared. I love my kids more than anything, but I didn't know how BIG it would be... Physically, mentally, emotionally. It is truly my world.
I am not one of those "toughest job you'll ever love" people, but it is interesting, hysterical, fun, exhausting, challenging, daunting, terrifying, draining, loving, mind-blowing thing I've ever done.
