Do parents who believe having a screaming baby is "magical" actually exist? For the record, I have a one-year-old kid at home myself, so I have some experience with this. The beginning is a gory and traumatic event, followed by an extended a poo-and-pee-and-vomit-filled sleepless night. You scold yourself for not applying yourself more when you were younger, because you have a sinking suspicion that you'll never have the chance to do anything "for yourself" ever again.
Many of these funny and cynical parenting eCards are true. The sound of deep breathing indicating sleep, sometime between 7PM and 1AM means that "my" "day" has finally begun. And "friends" without kids, or with a dog, who tell us they "can imagine" what it must be like you regard with such disdain, you're glad you don't have time to see them anymore. But being "too exhausted to argue anymore?" HA! More like gasoline on the fire.
