I once heard someone say that a pair of new parents were going to “enjoy every second” of the adventure that was before them.  Admittedly, I love the sentiment, but having recently undertaken even a fraction of the responsibilities of a parent, I will be the first to state that no, no, they will NOT enjoy every second.  There will be sleepless nights, doubts, second-guesses, worries (both real and imagined), unanswered questions, and mountains of diapers.  But what I think the person meant to say was an encouragement to remember the parts of parenthood that you DO enjoy, because that’s what makes every one of those bad things worthwhile.
