I for one was happy when Chemda called Lenny out for acting surprised at how much work a kid is.
I thought he knew that it was hard. He told how his life was.

I voted 'not aggressive' for Chemda previously, but I think Lenny is one of those guests that she just likes to needle. Maybe because she knows he'll react like this? I dunno, but I think she pushed him on this one. Sorry Chemda!

My imagination can go wild. I always knew that I wanted kids but I was aftaid it woild be like hell. I imagined me overworked and always stressed out.
It turned out to be easier. Not like hell just hard. But manageable.
Yey for negative expectations!

True, but you don't fully realize it or know how hard it is until you're in the midst of it. Dealing with it day in, day out. It's his reality right now, so he's talking about it. Also, he was asked.

My thoughts exactly.

It's true, new parents say that all the time.

I also feel like "WTF? Were you never paying attention because people talk about what a challenge it is, how hard it is and how they never get any sleep, like, ALL THE FUCKING TIME"

Most high schools use EXACTLY those facts to keep kids too scared of becoming teen parents.

Most people don't believe things will be as hard as people say they will be until they are going through it. This is true with most things not just having kids. They think I will read the books. I will be the prefect parent and have the perfect kid. I remember once my sister and I walked by a pregnant woman in a store. My son who was probably about 1 was crying loudly. After we passed the pregnant woman my sister asked what I thought the pregnant woman was thinking. I said, “she’s thinking my baby will never act like that."

That being said my son was overall a good laid back baby/kid. He slept through the night at 2 months. Did pretty much what I asked him to do. Of course there was still a lot of stress. You worry about things you never thought you would. Then of course there are the teenage years. One minute everything was great and the next minute my sweet little boy was gone. When the ugly would come out or the lies were told that was actually worse then anything I dealt with when he was a baby.

Now that he is 18 and in college the ugly moments hardly ever happen. He lives at home still so the ugliness does still happen sometimes. Overall though my son and I are very close. I love being his mom and I have more happy memories then sad. Do I think being a parent is for everyone? Defiantly not! Do parents have the right to complain when things are hard just because people warned them it would be? Sure they do. Has anyone ever told you something was going to be hard but you did it and you complained about it? Is it that you regret doing this hard thing or you just need to talk about it and move on? Examples of this would be training for a marathon, starting your own business, getting married, moving in with someone…

After all said and done parenting is the hardest thing and most rewarding thing I have ever done. Only time will tell if I ddi it right. Did I complain along the way? Yes, mostly to other parents who gave me advise and told me their experiences.

Chemda I am really not so sure why you acted the way you did towards Lenny.

I also was told that studying law was hard and it was. It was unfortunately even worse because it was so boring and depressing. I didn’t expect that because I thought it was the interesting kind of boring.
I complained a lot to everyone and I’m sure I was annoying. But what was the alternative?
Apia, how is studying law?
“ I will not express any opinion because I was told it was hard before so I just shut up now and suffer in silence, thanks”

I was also told marriage was hard. It’s not, so far. ( 7,5 years, together 13)
Do you like hearing that you divorced people? I’m sure you hate it.
Who knows maybe Mr. Apia comes back from the bathroom and has changed into a Schlager listening nazi who hates me, and than it’s hard.
But for now it’s not.

So I guess no one should say anything about their life ever.

I voted it was Chemda’s fault too. BUT: she forgets, bless her sweet little heart, the pre-show banter affects the show.

See you soon on Last Week.
