Oh gosh. Hello? Parenting. Since I really can't put into words how difficult it is, I decided to create this little graph to help you visualize our experience. Please start at the bottom where it, rather subtly, says, "Start Here!"
Note: The references to mother and mother-in-law are strictly for humor effect. This graph was in no way influenced by my own mother and mothers-in-law (yes, that's plural).
