Deciding to have kids

Alright, let's get straight to it. Having kids is really hard, way harder than anyone tells you. Nothing prepares you for waking up every two hours in pain to feed a crying baby. And each cry, it's like a dagger straight to the heart.

Friends, hobbies, spontaneous outings - they're all replaced by endless diaper checks. If the baby poops, it's a problem; if the baby doesn't poop, it's a problem.

And just when you think you can't take anymore, your heart jumps into your throat with every scan, test, and screening, hoping everything is okay.

But, you know what? I knew all of this before I had my baby. And I still did it. So, why the heck are you listening to me?
