The world today is full of modern Supermoms and Wonderdads who can work at home while raising their kids; not always in the right way, but to the best of their abilities.

But our tandem is far from that; my husband and me. Unlike those Ultimaparents, my husband and I stumbled through the first 2 years of our son's life. We'll probably continue making just as many mistakes in the coming years. After all, no parent is perfect or parenting itself for that matter. You can read more about our beginnings as parents here.

There are so many different ways to raise children but First-Time Parenting is MESSY. Messy but HAPPY. It's everything you never expected and it all blows up on your face:

  • Motherhood
  • Changing Diapers
  • Breastfeeding
  • The Loss of Social Life
  • Helplessness
  • The BIG Responsibility of Raising a Child, Keeping Him Safe, Healthy and Alive

Sometimes it's frustrating, so frustrating that you want to cry and give up, drink beer with your buddies and just runaway from being responsible... but it has its moments; tiny moments where you find it so hard to Stop Laughing after seeing your husband catch your child's champorado sh*t with his own two hands.

We went through that, are still going through it, and it's all awesome anyway! We learned to cope and took it upon ourselves to find the Happiness in all the Mess. So here is Happimess, a road to life-long parenting from a first-time parent who tries to make every new moment fun, no matter how trying:

Messy, unpredictable, nerve-racking but heart warming and one of a kind. An astonishingly enjoyable messs. If you're a parent you'll understand what I mean :)
