parenting is hard and that’s OK

I read this parenting article All parenting is hard. Don’t compare yourself with others. and it made me feel better.

I’ve always hated the idea that “someone has it worse than you so you’re not allowed to complain about anything”, but I’ve really fallen into this when it comes to parenting. We are incredibly lucky – we do parenting things pretty equally, we can afford good daycare, our kids are pretty well-behaved and have no major health issues – but some days are just so hard. Getting the kids off to daycare and then back home and in bed feels like a major accomplishment.
