Here's the truth: Parenting is the most inconvenient job you will ever do in your life. I have four kids. Yes, I have four kids and they go to four different schools. Everyone says to me, "How do you do that? How do you carpool? It's so inconvenient to your schedule." The answer is, yes, it is totally inconvenient; but my four kids need four totally different types of schools. That makes it really hard on me, but it is what they need. It's what I signed up for when God and the doctor put them in my arms on the first day. I didn't sign up for convenience. I signed up for parenthood. It's truly inconvenient, but stick with it. Even though you will never have a free moment to go to the bathroom, and even though you sit there and pee on that toilet and say, "Can someone please give me a moment of privacy?" One day they will be older, and you will beg for that day that made your life inconvenient for so long.
