This article really sums up what it’s like to be a parent. Although I would love to fall into the super parent category – the mellow guy who secretly runs a multinational corporation on the side – I’m not.
I often find myself worrying about things that I have no control over – Baby G’s big head for example. Even though everything seems fine, I still think bad thoughts when he’s tired and dropping his head to the ground because he has run out of steam at the end of the day. I also worry when he wakes up yelling in the middle of the night, even though it’s because he lost his soother or he has gas. And this is only the beginning.
That said, I’m still amazed how wonderful the little guy makes me feel when I walk in the door at the end of the day and he flashes me one of his goofy smiles. It certainly makes all the worry and work worthwhile.
