I'm not going to lie, somedays I ask myself what would it be like if I didn't have kids? What would life be like if I had taken that internship in New York? Would I be a better photographer? Would I be happier, skinnier, healthier? Would I feel better about myself? Would I be less stressed? Would Jared have a career?
I could go on, but it depresses me thinking about it. To sum it up... having kids is by far, hands down, no contest, the hardest thing I have EVER done in my life. It is the most taxing, time consuming, tiring, expensive job in the whole world. I have had to sacrifice more for these babies than anything else in the quarter century that I have been a live.
Today I was thinking about how unfair it is that we (women) give SO much to have babies and then we have to be fat afterwards too. That just doesn't seem fair... and in the middle of that thought I thought this... "you have to sacrifice a lot of things to do the right things."
Its a sacrifice, but it is the right thing... sometimes I dont like them much, but I sure do LOVE them.
