Although the article is addressed to people who are considering to start a family (and I am way past that stage), I found this quote very powerful:

“Don’t merely be present with your kids, don’t just “cherish” it (whatever that really means), actively observe and participate because at some point it’ll be the last time they crawl, the last time you give them a bath, the last time they hold your hand.

Some big truths, but also a very funny read. Read the whole article here: So you want to have kids…  A one-sided story of what to be prepared for in parenthood”
