A prayer for (toddler) parents
This, too, shall pass.
One day, your house will be clean.
One day, your family will not annoy you.
One day, your child will spend the whole night in their own bed.
No toenails in the back.
No hot breath on the face.
One day, you’ll spend a full day at work being productive and acting like an adult.
Grab a coffee, get a manicure.
One day, the parent you and the partner you and the work you will pat each other on the back and embrace as old friends. Changed, weathered, better.
This too shall pass.
