As the old adage goes, being a parent is the toughest job in the world. You can’t take “days off.” You have to “work” while you’re sick. You’re “on-call” 24/7. There is no “handbook” you can read that can prepare you for anything parenthood can throw at you. You just have to roll with the punches and deal with each and every unique situation you may face.
As the other old adage goes, there’s nothing more rewarding than being a parent. From seeing each and every milestone they reach as they grow from infant to toddler, with each grade level they advance to, to college graduations, weddings and even having children of their own, you just become prouder of your children every step of the way.
It’s not an easy journey, but it can be one well-worth taking. Whether you’re a rookie parent or an experienced parenthood veteran, the pregnancy stage of the journey can be a tough one.
The rollercoaster ride that is the pregnancy and parenthood journey is exactly why two moms created the website, Motherly, where you can find all sorts of free baby product samples, parenthood advice and so much more.
