Most of the time, I love parenting alongside my partner. I love talking about the latest new thing our daughter discovered, and I love cracking up over her antics together. Plus, I love the sense of pride we both have in the fact that she's growing and we're molding her into a pretty great tiny human. However, that doesn't mean I love every minute of every day. There are some parenting things no one actually likes doing with their partner, and those things usually make you sigh and say something along the lines of, "How is this my life right now?" before calculating the minutes until bedtime.
No one said parenting was easy, and I don't think very many parents go into it thinking it's going to be "smooth sailing," or that their relationship (if it is, in fact, two romantic partners parenting together) won't be impacted in some way. Still, until you're actually a parent yourself and you're in the trenches of late-night feedings, diaper changes, playdates, and the like, you really can't know what it's like to have someone by your side that sometimes annoys you but who you're ultimately (usually) extremely thankful for.
So, with that and because parenthood is about more than simply celebrating the wins, here are a few parenting things no one (myself included) likes doing with their partner.
