Appreciating Parenthood

Parenthood gets a bad rap. In modern society men and women alike are warned that once a child is born your life is over, but the truth is life as a parent widens your life. 
My dear friend posted this article to Facebook the other day and I thought it was excellent.

The article mentioned a new quarterly magazine titled Kindling Qurterly which as their About Me says "...exploration of fatherhood...through essays, interviews, editorials, art and photography we highlight creative individuals whose work and lives are inseparable from their role as a parent."
I am very interested in picking up a copy of this mag and checking it out for myself. 

Parenthood is hard, no doubt, but it is also rewarding. There are bad days, but there are bad days at work and in life too. Parenthood offers you a chance to love and discover the world again through your children's eyes.
