Our twins are 11 months old and I can begin to see (almost) clearly what’s it like to be a parent. It is mostly fun and butterflies, but I sometimes feel like I’m watching a not-so-good movie.
1- It’s never-ending
You realize at some point that it’s here to stay.
2- It’s tiring
Very much so. Constantly. tiring.
3- It’s cheesy
Sometimes good cheese, mostly just annoying-to-people cheese.
4- It’s dirty
It’s like a Tarantino movie. Except with poop instead of blood.
5- You sometimes cry
Out of desperation, that is.
6- Everyone else seems to enjoy it
How is it so perfect to them?
7- You eat it out
Mostly Ben and Jerry’s.
8- You’re constantly falling asleep
At awkward moments.
9- You blame being here on someone
Your partner that is.
10- But being you, you’d watch it again if you had the chance.
