Things that bug me about parenting


This was just hanging around in my draft queue:

I love having children, but face it, there are parts of it that just get under my skin. Here are just a few:

  • Conflicting “expert” medical advice
  • Not knowing why the baby has been screaming for the last hour despite all my best measures (including all that have worked before)
  • All the nonexpert, unsolicited advice
  • Drop this crisis, attend to the one that just popped up
  • Schedule? Well, I knew that would be a lost cause anyway, but when it’s hard to get the older toddler to the doctor, that’s ridiculous.
  • Last but not least, overzealous diaper tabs
