Remember when you didn't have kids? That was luxurious, right? You used to do things like sleep, shower, eat full meals start to finish (and not have to mop up the floor afterward)? Heavenly. You didn't realize it at the time, but you were essentially living your life in a spa. The only thing missing was the soft lull of Enya or crashing waves on a loop in the background and an endless pitcher of cucumber water.
Your life now, as a parent? BAHAHAHAHA! It's about an eighth as relaxing as it was pre-children. Your once lazy, brunch/coffee/newspaper-filled Saturday mornings have now been replaced with 6:30 a.m. wake-ups; smashed Cheerios every which way you turn; and the Frozen soundtrack blaring in the background on repeat.
Think I'm being hyperbolic? Check out this dad's hilarious compilation of Saturdays with his 4-year-old daughter for the last three months.
Notice a pattern here?
