One thing that really does not make anybody feel better is the, “Well, you think you are going through tough times and are tired? WELL! when I had my kids it was….” Thanks for the empathy pal. I do not doubt that it was just as tough for you trying to function all day after being up feeding babies thirty-four times in the night. Yep, all parents go through this stage like some vicious hazing ritual run by the gods of all things unmerciful. And we all usually make it through the hazing, slightly altered but alive in some form or another. We will too. I hope.
