When someone becomes a parent, everything changes.

Men who used to pride themselves in their stoicism find themselves crying when they greet their new daughter. Women who would gag at the thought of vomit share advice on cleaning meconium  stains from cloth diapers.

Priorities shift. Love takes on a new meaning.

Life is wonderful, right? New life, new meaning, new love….new stress, new challenges, new fights, new problems.

There are some things parenting books don’t prepare you for. Unexpected challenges appear, and it can be quite disconcerting to a new mom or dad.
