98% of parenting
There's a comedian my husband loves (I forget who right now) that says 98% of parenting sucks. Big time. But that the 2% that doesn't suck is so incredibly awesome that it more than makes up for the rest.
As I sit here comforting Audrey and trying to help her recover from a complete meltdown because Daddy won't let her eat a bar of chocolate 3 minutes before dinner I am so reminded of the 98% bit.
And yes, there's a lot of suckiness to parenting but I think a whole lot more of the good stuff.
