Tidbit: Parenting is a rough gig.

Whoa man! I cannot believe how stressful, challenging, and exhausting this parenthood gig is. I cannot believe I thought newborns and toddlers were challenging. Teenagers are tough- and not so tough. This is taking all my energy today. I have some art in my head, but it will have to wait for a bit while my hands and heart are working so hard with these kids. These amazing, beautiful, inteligent people who are inbetween childhood and adulthood, and for whom life is so big and scary and exciting.
God grant me the serenity to parent them with grace, patience, and understanding.
