This Huffington Post article by an anonymous writer is one of the most brutal examples of what a lot of parents think but don't say out loud. Here's how "My Wife Is Expecting Twins and I Am Not Happy About It" opens...
I've been doing some spying lately, casually asking friends and acquaintances about their experiences with having twins.
A buddy from college said of the first year: "Think of the worst thing you can imagine. That's what it was like."
An industry contact back from maternity leave said: "I literally couldn't wait to get back to work. Every weekend is way too long."
A former colleague was more blunt: "Twins were always my worst nightmare."
And now it's my and my wife's nightmare; we're expecting twins this August.
Read the rest. It's heartbreaking.
