Why Parents Hate Parenting

You may have already seen it (and it's actually a very well written piece), but you have to check out this article

How many of you would like to punch her in the face?

There was a time I'm pretty sure my wife would have.

It's a long article, and it takes a long time to unpack the main points. If you read through to the end, it explains a lot - not just about parenting, but about infertility and about life decisions in general.

I think I would have liked reading this article (or maybe I should say "found it useful") during our decision-making times. Many times I asked myself why I was doing this, and it would have helped untangle the mystery somewhat. It would also have helped me cultivate viable alternatives, should the treatments not have worked out.
