I haven't decided whether it's the professional world that prepares us for raising children, or raising children that hones us for the professional world. On a project-by-project, event-by-event basis, both require:
- meticulous preparation, planning, and attention to detail,
- the flexibility to alter the plan on a split-second's notice or formulate an entirely new one, and
- the ability not just to anticipate but revel in and practically demand the unexpected.
While these traits can help us "get ahead" in the professional arena, in the parenting one they are a matter of sheer, nailbiting survival. So, you do the math.
