It’s no secret. Parenting is hard. Well, so are the terrible two’s. And when you combine that with marriage, you might as well stick a fork in your eye and go to bed, because it feels like death. But it’s not and the good news is despite you thinking when will this horrific phase go away?, it does. P.S. the clock is ticking over here in my household and I’m right here with you. Pass the wine please.
"What is Netflix and chill?" I say to my best friend who has a teenager. "Oh you know, sex and Netflix. I'm sorry, come again? What planet am I living on? That is brilliant! Well, good to know. Thanks for filling me in." Period, end of conversation. Turns out it started years ago with a twitter hashtag and is a viral meme used by all the millenials, but this silly American slang term to the married with babies "me" got me thinking. It got me reminiscing. And the butterflies from memories of days gone by sifted over my forehead like a cool ocean breeze. You see, those days are gone. Or are they?
Remember that time you went to a wedding single and drank champagne till they ran out and danced like a maniac with hundreds of strangers and maybe went for a walk down a beach path with a cute boy to see the waves off the cliff overlooking the ocean? Yeah, me neither, it was kinda a long time ago. It was also kinda fun and wildly romantic. Ya know, wedding crashers, the wedding ceremony, the cute singles and lots of alcohol. Those were the days. Wild, sexy, sometimes cheesy and full of frantic memories and headaches the mornings after.
