I felt bemused whenever people exclaimed about difficulty of raising a child.
Believing the parenting was a difficult chore meant losing half the battle before you even started.
Parenting was just a part of our lives which we had to integrate and enjoy the ride while we could. I wished people would stop thinking that this was foreign and tough.
It was like learning mother tongue.
It was like executing a new project at work.
If you had not tried it but deemed it as difficult, it became a self-fulfilling prophecy. We only had to focus on the big picture and not let unfamiliar puzzles derail us from our goals.
Just like how we treated life, stay positive, think positive and it would be better than we expected.
