I think a lot of parents, especially new ones, romanticize that their child will be perfect and their parenting skills top notch.
They believe that their child will always respect and love them and be the cute little rewarding bundle of joy that they get to hold in their arms on the day of their birth.
This is not so.
I hate to tell you, but infancy is the easiest part of parenting.
You take care of their basic needs, you comfort and hold them when they cry, and you nurture them into learning and growing, and that is where the easy part stops.
Because then children learn to speak, and it’s all downhill from there.
