Is it getting easier?

Parents of younger kids seem to always tell each other “it gets easier,” but does it really?  Another common quote by parents of teenagers or post-teenagers say “I use to think it was tough when they were young.”  So I ask myself “does it ever get easier?”  Our answer…. “no.”  It changes but I would have a hard time saying that it is “easier.”

Of course what I think is “hard” is actually all the stuff I will miss when it ends…. bathing, feeding, clothing, and all the “DADDY!!s”  I try to constantly remind myself that even wiping dirty bottoms and six minute temper tantrums will one day bring a smile to my lips.

It is not necessary to understand things in order to argue about them.
Pierre Beaumarchais (1732 – 1799)
There are no easy answers’ but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.
Ronald Reagan
