A rose with thorns. Big ones as well….
Parenting is filled with so many highs but wow does it come with some mightily sharp thorns. One of the peskiest of those thorns being the lack of sleep. As much as you kid yourself, you never seem to catch up with those missed closed eye moments. So far it’s 14 years of sleep deprivation and more to come I suspect.
BUT whisper it. Just like those roses with the thorns. Parenting is so worth the thorns.
