The awful truth about parenthood

Bitter article about rasing kids by a stay at home Dad who is a writer.
For those parents out there it is an entertaining read.

“The truth is, parenthood is an incredibly mind-numbing, energy-sapping and, for the most part, banal experience. Yes, I love my children; but I really have no choice – loving your children is hardwired into most parents. It’s just nature’s way of ensuring the propagation of the species. The child is usually loved even before it’s born.

So I think the myth has to be exploded. If you enjoy cleaning up the same mess you just cleaned up five minutes earlier; if you enjoy answering the same question 12 times in a row; and if you aren’t particularly fond of leaving the house – parenthood might just be for you.”
