This parenting stuff is really, really hard.
Babies and toddlers are physically demanding, but I'm learning that it's still very exhausting--mentally--as they get older. Especially if you are trying to do it right. It's always a challenge--sometimes an interesting one, sometimes a fun one, sometimes a frustratingly difficult one. And I don't even have teenagers. :o)
One of these days when I have a bit more free time (she laughs hysterically) I'm going to try to write up some more parenting thoughts. Specifically, I think it would be helpful to me to define our parenting goals and principles. We have done a good job of defining it, I think, but these things are worth revisiting from time to time, don't you think? I especially want to tie in our parenting goals with Objectivism in a very specific way.
I bet it would spark some interesting blogversations anyway!
Speaking of parenting, that baby just woke up AGAIN! Gotta go.
