12 Ecards that Accurately Describe What Parenting is LikeHave you ever had one of those days where your house is in total chaos and you’re sitting there watching all the action happen? You think to yourself, “what have I gotten myself into” as you watch your kids fight over the same toy and trip over the building block and books all over the floor.
