I remember how hard babies are: colicky, demanding, fussy, refuse to let you sleep babies.
I remember how hard toddlers are: tantrum throwing, stubborn, willful, refuse to be potty trained toddlers.
I remember how hard elementary schoolers are: drive them endlessly, absentminded, tattletale, know it all, “Hey mom, my science fair project is due tomorrow” elementary schoolers.
I remember how hard teenagers are: eye rolling, back talking, door slamming, "I want it now" teenagers.
But my God people, they grow up so damn fast. And if you’re lucky, if you did everything in your power to help them, teach them, ground them and set them free? You will remember them being this.damn.happy.
