Parenting Analogies?

Just whipped home to pick up a few things, fill up the car, charge the cell phone (we have Shea's mom's since that's one piece of techno-geekery that hasn't engulfed me yet) and so on. 

It's only been a couple days but I've been trying to come up with an analogy for what parenthood is like so far. 

Is it like work where the baby is the boss whom you're responsible to, trying to keep them happy while they have certain expectations of you based on the job description of “parent”?    

Or is it like a holiday with lots of fun times, photo-taking, joy and wonder (and maybe the occasional vomiting due to over-indulgence)?

Or is it like University with all-nighters (case in point), constant learning of new facts and skills, and the realization that this is going to be more expensive than you expected!

Or is it 4am and I'm rambling madly as the lack of sleep begins to affect my brain (no comments from the peanut gallery on that one, please!)

    I want more pics!!! I want the diaper one, where Jason changes the diaper and Pace pees on him. And the one where Shea grins in the background while Jason changes the diaper.
    And the one where Jason brings Shea her dinner, with her feet propped up. And takes out the garbage. Then the one where Jason puts on the timer, and sits on the sofa to eat his own dinner, and looks over at Pace, snuggled between he & Shea, and then sighs cause it's suddenly a family of three.

    Well, our timing isn't good enough to get a pic of me being peed on. But I can assure you that it's happened!
