The Worst Thing

A friend asked me a question about parenting the other day.  She asked me what the worst thing about being a parent was.  Then, before I could answer, she answered her own question and I was absolutely astounded.  I did give her an answer, but the question made me wonder what everyone else thought.

So, I’d like you to answer that question in the comment section.  Answer it before you read the other comments and answer whether you are currently parenting or not.  Please specify whether you are currently parenting and how old your kids are.

So, with the exception of tragedy, because there is nothing worse than a child who should be here and isn’t, what is the worst thing about parenting?  I’ll answer in the comment section too.
