Re: The wind out my sails

I think that anyone who says "enjoy them while they're little" or "these are the best years of your life" or the like either (1) hasn't ever had kids, (2) forgot what it's like to have little kids, or (3) is delusional.

Or there might be the occasional person who got lucky and got very easy kids. But they don't realize they got lucky, and credit their amazing parenting.

Take it day by day, minute by minute when you have to! Kids are challenging and you can't enjoy every minute. It is very normal to feel overwhelmed at times and to have days where the only good thing about the day is the kids' bedtime.
