It all starts with a smile

Having a kid is... hard.

Yhea, I'm not going to say it's all rainbows and sunshine.

First of all, your life changes a lot. Your schedule, your sleep, your day to day, your priorities in life. Everything is different now.

Depending on your situation, and assuming there are no complications with the pregnancy, birth, and the child, your mileage might vary a bit. But not by a lot.

However, with all the sleepless nights, with all the screaming, the unknown, the stress etc. everything is cleared when he or she smiles at you.

At that moment, everything else is just a blur. There is no pain, no fear, no tiredness, nothing. You look at that smile, and you can't help yourself but to smile back. It fills your heart with pure joy. Your entire world is reduced to those seconds.

And it is probably one of the most beautiful things on earth.
