10 moments when you will realise being a parent suck!

New parents take note, being a parent is not all fun in games. I was around a pool the other day when a parent of a young child was descending the steps into a rather cold pool with her 2-year-old on her hip.

I was around a pool the other day when a parent of a young child was descending the steps into a rather cold pool with her 2-year-old on her hip.  She turned around and said, “this is when being a parents sucks!”.  It had me thinking, yes there are times when it really does… which made me wonder what are some other times parenting falls in the not so much FUN basket?

  • When you have at least 5 small errands to run, at different locations !!! And getting the kids in and out of the car each time takes longer than the actual errands!
  • When you have been waiting for some time and you are nearly to the front of a queue, and your child needs to go wees NOW!! Grrrr….
  • When you are sick, and you just want to crawl up in a ball or stay very close to the bathroom, but the kids still need you…
  • When you have just spent 4 hours cleaning, then the family return from school and work!!!
  • When you have bought a new dress, booked the babysitter and have daydreamed about your special night out, and the toddler develops a temperature and throws up an hour before you are due to leave ☹… really sucks…
  • When you feel like a relaxing wine whilst the kids are playing nicely in the back yard, but you are the designated driver to collect the eldest from a birthday party … at 8pm.! @x&
  • When you have to ‘play hide & sneak’ to eat your own chocolate… not quite as enjoyable as savouring and enjoying the moment.
  • When your child decides that meal you lovingly created would look better on the floor, or on your face.
  • When you spend considerable time (and money) choosing the perfect gift for your child, for them to unwrap it, look at it, and quickly ask for the next present (unappreciative little tike! ☺)

We sign up for parenting, and with that comes the ups and downs.  In the big scheme of life these are small things that are frustrating at the time, but life could be worse, and I wouldn’t swap it for the world.  Next week we will look at the other side of the scale, those special moments that stay with us forever.
