Job requirements for being a parent

Personally, I think there should be job requirements for being a parent. No, I’m not judging the way anyone parents. As the young folk say, “You have to do you.” But I think that if you want to become a parent you need to know what it involves. Some couples have an unexpected pregnancy. They don’t plan for a baby. But God chose you to carry this baby. Therefore, you need to fulfill the same job requirements as those who planned for their baby.
And some women aren’t as lucky. They don’t just sneeze and become pregnant. They have to fight to have their baby. These women have to go through treatment after treatment just to conceive their precious gift from God. As a parent, your ultimate responsibility is to be there and care for your child no matter what! It’s a lifetime commitment. Not everyone is suited for parenthood.

Fin is the type of kid that knows what he wants, does things when he is ready and on his own terms, and tells (babbles) you how it is. Hmm it reminds me of someone I know? Wink. I don’t really mind pumping, however, I feel my entire day revolves around when I have to pump. My famous last words are always “then I have to pump” or “I have to pump soon” or “OMG I have to pump”.
