We think this goes without saying, but parenting is no easy feat. For starters, unlike a 9-5, this is one job that never ends. But being given the task of loving another human life unconditionally, despite any and every flaw they may have is the greatest job of them all. Even when they're hormone, raging teenagers who take you on a first class flight to hell up until the day they leave for college and then some.
My coupon use is pretty much nonexistent. Outside of using the occasional discount code for Seamless, because of course, I really can't be bothered to spend an afternoon clipping coupons. But based on what I've gathered, coupons are usually something you use to get discounts on food and products. I know Groupon offers discounts on services like laser hair removal, massages, and other sort of spa services, but I thought that's where discounts in the world came to end. I was wrong. I hate being wrong.

Men and women evolved different brains over millions of years, because of necessity. Men chased down food for their families and provided protection. Women cared for the young and old, and provided a nurturing environment. Because of these different roles, the sexes evolved to process information differently, think in radically different ways, expect different things, and have different perceptions, beliefs and behaviors.
