Being a full-time designer and father is hard work. People just don't understand the time and effort it takes to raise two rambunctious juveniles. Keeping them fed, warm, preventing them from shitting on your keyboard. It's a thankless job really. Until you have children you'll never understand the mental and physical toll it takes on you. It's like "DAD" we want crickets, "DAD" we want heat and UV lights so we don't die.
At the end of the day, after putting in 12 hours of work, tucking them into bed and reading them their favorite bed time stories is really what its all about. While they are too young to speak the dead look in their eyes tells me they love and appreciate me.
