Until last night…
Until last night I just thought it couldn’t get better.
Don’t get me wrong. Parenthood is exhausting. It constantly pushes you to spend money you don’t have. It brings you to the breaking point on a daily/weekly basis. Your sex life…what? Your sleep patterns…don’t worry about that because there will be nothing to pattern anymore. Your eardrums will bleed from the baby screaming in your ear. And on and on.
But it all pales in comparison to the sheer joy of being called “papa” or seeing your kid’s face light up as she sprints towards you when you walk into your home. These and a million other little things keep life in balance in the otherwise exhausting and often seemingly thankless job of being a parent.
But sometimes when your baby is sleeping in your arms you say to yourself “Does it get better than this?”
From what I got told last night, apparently so…stay tuned…
