Saw this and thought it might be appropriate....All the pros and cons to parenting a child...

1. Have you ever wondered what it ’ s like... To see on a monochrome screen the image of the 12-week miracle you ’ ve created To feel a kick from inside your body
2. To spend hours/days/weeks debating over what name you will give your child
3. To be awake at 3 in the morning nursing a teething baby
4. To understand how the child locks work on your car
5. To entrust your child to a complete stranger on its first day at playgroup
6. To see your angel play Gabriel in the school nativity
7. To shout and cheer as your 9-year old scores the winning goal in a football competition
8. To buy bumper packs of toilet rolls
9. To sit up fretting when your teenager isn ’ t home by midnight
10. To be in debt helping your eldest to pay for college fees
11. To beam with pride as you walk your daughter down the aisle on her wedding day
12. To suffer from empty nest syndrome
13. To keep hoping you ’ ll see that magic blue line
14. To submit yourself for endless tests and investigations
15. To hear the words “ I ’ m sorry.... ” To cry so much your eyes hurt
16. To think the light at the end of the tunnel is broken
17 To feel as if you are always on the outside looking in
18. To reach out to strangers in cyber-space because they ’ ll understand you completely
19. To learn to laugh at the platitudes people think are helpful
20. To grow in strength, ready to face the world again To be grateful there is MoreToLife
