A fellow scimom (i.e. scientist+mother) posted this on Facebook and generated a few funny retorts.
My response- “Looks about right.” My daughter is particularly adept at taking me from elated to enraged and back again in no time flat.
Another response- “I wish it had a time scale.” That comment cracked me up. I wonder when it will level off/even out, if ever.
It also reminded me of this post on Geek in Heels, Average Happiness vs Transcendent Moments, where she summarizes a TED talk: “Let’s talk parenting taboos” by Rufus Griscom and Alisa Volkman (of Nerve and Babble) about the highs and lows of parental happiness.
