Today, my son handed me a handful of snot he just sneezed out, then went back to playing with his Lego. I had IVF and gave up a career as a lawyer to have this little snot demon. FML

Funny, they usually don't put that part in the IVF brochures. Spoiler alert: You're going to have misadventures with poop, vomit and other bodily fluids. I'll spare you the horror of what you have to look forward to with a teenage boy, counselor.

You don't have to quit your job to be a parent.

Enjoy every minute of it!! My older kid used to take off his diaper and smear poop over his crib when he was little. Times may suck but its a joy watching them grow up and become young men.

Don't let your child be a damper. Remember why you wanted him so badly in the first place. You have a lot more days and adventures to look forward to.

Yup. Welcome to parenthood. lol

Don’t be a doormat. Teach the child or suffer the consequences.

You don't have to quit your job to be a parent.

You quit your job and used a fertility treatment for a child. What did you expect...?

You're complaining about your child being a child? What made you want one in the first place?

I understand the unhappiness with the parenting life. My 6 year old is high needs, currently doing a partial in patient program at a psych hospital. It’s very, very rough. There’s such a stigma about parents who hate parenting and there shouldn’t be. Not every kid is a ray of sunshine.

yasss! I have 4 kids who I love with everything I have! but I'm also one of those people who hates being a parent! you can love your kids and love HAVING them while hating the job at the same time!
