Parenting is a lot Like Going to Disneyland…

Come on Mom - CopyToday I realized something. I realized that parenting is a lot like going to Disneyland with your children.  You think that you are going for you kids’ enjoyment.  But at the end of the day (if you go on a non-busy day), you realize you had just as much fun, if not more fun, than your kids did.

Children will never fully realize what you have done for them.  Even though I am a parent now, I still don’t fully grasp or give credit or even ample gratitude for what my parents have done for me.  I just know it comes down to, “They love me and I love them back.”

As a parent it can be a little daunting to think, “Why should I toil and sacrifice for these little ones if they are never going to fully appreciate what I have done for them?”  But then I realized that raising my children is not just for them, it is for me too.
