I tell ya, being a parent can be a real rollercoaster ride.
One minute, you are listening to your kid in their room calling out for you when they are supposed to be sleeping, and you are trying to get things done, and you’ve already gone back in for another song and round of questions a couple times.
You start to mumble under your breath, “Why won’t she just $#!*@! go to sleep?!?”
Then she quiets down a little, but you still her tiny, sad-sounding voice saying something. You listen closer. You hear, “i wish mommy and daddy would come and sing me a song…”
And your heart melts.
