good mommy bad mommy

I've read a lot about women who think they can't do "the motherhood" thing or they didn't think it would be so hard. My hearth goes out to them , but I was wondering if anyone else has surprised themsevles with how good they are as a mommy. Or how much they enjoy it.

  • Most days I enjoy it and surprise myself...everyone always told me that I would make a good mom. I'm starting to believe it...then I have one of THOSE days and I start all over again.

  • I love it, but I knew I would love it. :) I've always loved kids and I've always wanted a house full. Now we're down to the two we have and MAYBE one more.

  • It was what I thought it would be. I enjoyed the kids but didn't plan on rearing three of them on my own. That was hard but we got through it. The responsibility of kids is a serious matter but we have to find a balance between responsibility and fun. I admit I like being a grandmother better!

  • I was a great mom and I love it when my kids were small. But when they got to be teenagers. I was ready to throw in the towel. Teens make you wonder what you did wrong when they were small???????
