Parenting is a many splendored thing. There are sweet moments, like the first time your toddler says "I love you," or those times when your big kid catches you with a spontaneous hug. But, in between the moments that make it all worth it, there's, well, everything else: the messy house, the poop, the sleepless nights, the playdates, the endless days spent listening to terrible music and toys and television shows.
