Let's be real, every parent wants to be the perfect parent for their children, however, you almost instantly realize no such parent exists. Being a parent is a HARD JOB, the hardest job I personally have ever had. When you start your journey or unpaid career as a parent you don't have a Bachelor's Degree going in. There is no schooling for being a parent, sure there are plenty of books, believe me, I have read them and still do. Until you give birth and become a parent, your true education doesn't start until you are on the job. I am so extremely thankful for the many books to assist with the ups and downs and the "Oh no, what do I do now?" moments as a parent.
My Mom and I were living in a one bedroom apartment for about five years, and eventually we had to move to a house where we would be able to have our own room and privacy. Not only was I excited about having my own room, I was also excited about finally being able to have a dog, and I had my eye on one particular breed; huskies! I had begged my mom for weeks about getting a husky. She didn’t like the idea due to the responsibility this type of dog would bring, and I didn’t bother to put in the time to research about these responsibilities (big mistake). My mom was reluctant about letting me have this type of dog, but she knew I loved huskies and she wanted to give me a chance to have one, so we began to search. We went to some pounds in hope that we would find something that we were looking for, but we left unsuccessful.
