My Favorite and Least Favorite Thing About Parenting

We all have things we like and things we dislike. We have them as children and as we become adults, our likes and dislikes may change. Now for me I still hate doing housework.

Then when we become parents, those likes and dislikes may change again. Not that we don’t still like and dislike the things from before, (yes, I still hate housework, even after kids) but we now now have a list of things we like and dislike about parenting.

Now, housework doesn’t come around just when you are a parent, so that isn’t what I dislike the most about parenting. If I had to pick one thing that I dislike most about parenting it would have to be the lack of sleep.

My Favorite and Least Favorite Thing About Parenting

I mean right from the start my daughter had me up all hours of the night. I would always get the comments that I should sleep while I was pregnant because I wouldn’t be able to sleep once the baby got here. The thing is, even when I was pregnant she didn’t let me sleep because she would dance on my bladder.

Then she was born at almost 2 AM, so really from the start she has been my little night owl. We had a hard time getting her to sleep through the night as well.

Even now though, she sleeps through the night but she is up early in the morning, and I am not a morning person. I would be happy if I could sleep in until noon, but not with my daughter around who is up between 7 and 8 AM.

While the lack of sleep is my least favorite thing about parenting, I have to say my favorite thing about parenting is getting to see my daughters smile in the morning. She is such a morning person and has never woke up crying, she always wakes up babbling and with a huge smile on her face.

Getting to see her in the morning makes waking up early every morning worth it. I love watching her grow and learn every day. Every morning that she wakes up reminds me that she will grow up so fast and I need to take advantage of being able to watch her grow up.

I also think about what she will be like as a teenager and think that I should enjoy her waking up with a smile, because that may not always happen!
