I know there's been lots of comparisons done about how businesses are like children. But here's another one
After having Child #2, I remember thinking "If I knew what parenting was REALLY going to be like, would I have done it?". Meaning, if someone had written down all the pros and cons on a piece of paper, would I (pre-kids) have thought that looked like a good idea?
