Children....harsh slave drivers. They equate to each other because in the end each of them will break you.
I've realized that I love my daughter more than anything else in the world and I will have all the stupid battles just to make her happy. Her father and I grew up soooo differently that at this point, we agree we love and treasure her, that we want everything for her well being and to develop into the stellar person we know she can be. Beyond that, there is very little we agree on. Hopefully, we will balance each other out and raise her decently. But she'll always be loved and she'll always have us to lean on and even to break our hearts.
