Somedays I’d Push The Button

I’ve written repeatedly about the positive experiences of being a parent. Although those are true and sincere thoughts, the reality is that it’s not always that way. That’s not always the case. Sometimes, it’s as exhausting and discouraging as watching more then 5 minutes of Fox News. Today was one of those days. Between a long work week with a significant press to roll out some changes, having my wife be taken out of commission by a nasty stomach flu, staying home to care for the kids all day Friday and most of Saturday… we’ll, it’s been, uh, ‘special’.

The honest truth: As much as I love them and as many positives as there are about parenting, there’s days that make you wonder what the hell you did. There’s days that, were you to walk into a room with a man behind a desk, upon which set a simple red button, and that man were to say ‘If you press that button…’, you’d have already pressed it. Perhaps having leapt to do so.
